At least the Rio Olympic mascots are cute:
I've already done way too much research on the various buffet options in the vicinity. Obviously the Mirage buffet is a consideration, but I've also heard great reviews about the Paris, Caesar's, and Bellagio buffets. There are so many choices! (Side note: Ocean's Eleven is one of my favorite movies, so I have a mild obsession with the Bellagio.)

4.) I'm considering adding another half marathon to my fall racing schedule. My running mojo has started coming back a little bit, and the fall is by far my favorite time of year to run and race. Normally the Prairie State Half Marathon is a classic for me, but unfortunately the date conflicts with the Army 10-Miler. However, I just heard about the Save the Beans Half Marathon on October 23. It starts at the same forest preserve as Prairie State, and has a nearly identical course. Talk about perfect substitutes, right? But at the same time, I am thoroughly enjoying the break from focused training. So I keep going back and forth.
