Vegas Superbowl weekend Day 2: XS Nightclub

On our second day, we were up and about by 10 am. We checked out and headed over to the Cosmopolitan. Between the entire group we had 6 comp rooms for the rest of the weekend.

Pierce, Phat, and I were the first to check in. We all tipped our concierge and she was nice enough to upgrade all of us, but the rooms weren't ready.

Some of the guys went to place their bets for the Superbowl. Denver was favored and 2 out of 3 people were betting Denver in Vegas. Needless to say Vegas made out like a bandit that day.

After placing our bets, we had lots of time to kill while we wait for the rest of our group to show up and for our rooms to be ready.

First up Thunderhorn free spin bonus

Nevermind we're hungry let's go eat. We ate at Wicked Spoon for brunch.

French Toast, braised short rib benedict, sausage pattie, passion fruit juice, and spicy mac and cheese.

Brian was the first to arrive. This guy goes HAM in Vegas.

More spicy mac and cheese, bone marrow, and Korean short rib.

My favorite part of the buffet. In the pot we had apple cobbler and molten chocolate cake. On the plate we have toffee and chocolate covered strawberry. carrot cake, chocolate rice crispy treat, doughnut, white chocolate cookie, and cheesecake.

By the time we were done with brunch some of the rooms were ready. Since all the bars and restaurant seating have been reserved for the game, we decided to watch the game in Phat's room.

Phat's Terrace one bedroom. The bathroom at the Cosmopolitan still weird me out. You have a window that can view into the shower and the only thing that blocks the view is a blind.

John and Robyn finally arrived around noon.

One of the nice things about the Cosmopolitan is it's conveniently located across the street form Walgreens

We head to Walgreens to pick up drinks and snacks before kick off.

My room was finally available and to my surprise they gave me the fountain view, score!

After dropping off our luggage, we headed back to Phat's room to watch Denver get massacred.

By the time we finished our food it was time to get ready for the club. We had table service at XS Nightclub.

We got to the club around 11 pm. Like usual it wasn't too packed yet.

Let the drinking commence.

The night started off really slow.

Jack got the mask from a bachelorette party that was next to us.

Nicole sober

I don't even know how those got there.

My brothers, pierce and I.

You get out of the picture!

Me, Ben, and Robyn

Lil Jon was performing at XS that night.

Sometime during the night Ben decided to buy a bottle of Dom Perignon. This was a major turning point for a lot of people.

Our runner.

I vaguely remember this photo.

Looks like Ben got another mask from the bachelorette party.

Wild Ben.

Around 1 am the last part of our group showed up. Nicole and her two friends.

and just for record, I didn't take this picture. Nicole did, but after going through my camera I thought I did and was like; I probably looked liked a perv taingr a picture of the dancer, but Nicole just told me that it was her.

Phil and Jason!

Don't remember this

or this

or this... who's taking the picture?

yup this one neither

Nichole Phil and Jason

Super BEN!

Is she passed out? I don't know cause I still don't remember the rest of the night.

I don't even know who those people are with Ben.

Ben's on the stage!

I think Peter just woke up Nicole.

Where the hell did that bottle come from? I think that's Brian's fault.

Oh.,,.hey we eventually left.

I think at this point I maxed out my memory card. 8 gigs worth of video and pictures. Man you should see the stuff that I don't put on this site :)

so that ends day 2. What's in stored for tomorrow?
