    My Trip Report

    I had high hopes of doing a semi-live trip report during this week.

    "it will be cold/we'll be there for a while/I don't have a huge gambool budget/we don't have a ton of plans really, so I'll have lots of time in the room to type"

    After 2019 Big Game week in Vegas last year when it was cold and even snowed we vowed we'd never do Vegas for Big Game week and *IF* we did it would only be for a few days but definitely not a long time...

    And then the comps came in.. and our Mexico trip nearly tripled in cost than what we had budgeted, and the air fare made sense to stay the full week....

    So, since I didn't succeed at writing up our daily reports, I did vlog them.

    Without further adieu here is our day 1 - travel, checking in to Mandalay, late nite dining at Citizens, some slot porn...

    Great vlogs!! You guys certainly had a great time. Nice wins on the slots and the views from your room is killer, especially at night. Keep doing what you're doing, you guys are doing a great job. Looking forward to more videos!! :beer:

    Day 4 is live and equally off the rails. We made very good friends with Titos and Redbull for the game :drunk::headbang:. Great brunch at Fleur - highly recommended and a great MV reward. The Libertine big game party was excellent and very well run. I give a drunken rant to Tom Brady pretty much on behalf of all Patriots fans, and I think I can ditch my microroller status now.

    I discovered your Vegas vlogs on YouTube just yesterday, and I've been enjoying everything you've posted this far for this most recent trip. I love the production value you add to what you post, as well as how... well... real you keep your content. Not at all surprised to see your trip report here as well. Looking forward to the conclusion.

    I was in town on the exact same dates as you two, and the Super Bowl party I attended was at Caesars Palace. (I can say "Super Bowl" there because Caesars Entertainment is an official partner of the NFL.) My third straight Super Bowl weekend in Vegas, but the first without our team in the game. It felt different, but the viewing experience more than made up for it.

    Anyway... cheering for you to find more balls with words!

    This is all so super nice of you to say! So glad you've been enjoying. I give full edit/production credit to Steve, that's totally his niche. I'd lose my mind if I had to do the edits :bang: I hope your trip was a winning one, and that next year our team won't be on a bye on Superbowl Weekend :)

    I'm hoping we'll get a better MLife invite for 2021 - Luxor and NYNY just weren't cutting it for me - which is why we paid for Libertine.

    Day 5 is live and a lot more low key. Breakfast at HOB, spa for me, gambling and poker for Steve, Foundation Room, and dinner at Lupo. Great way to relax and spend our last full day at MB. The spa at MB was not the best, and not the worst, but for a MV freebie I can't really complain about a chill afternoon. I couldn't film much of the spa because it was single gender and nudity welcomed. Anyways, still lots of gambling, slot porn and silly degen speak.

    These vlogs are so much fun. Looking forward to more, and hoping your quest for "Big Balls" and a "handjob" is a success!!!:thumbsup:

    Day 6 is live! It's moving day from Mandalay to the Wynn. It's definitely a lot more low key than the rest of the week has been. We stop in at the "new" Sahara , as well as the Shark Reef at Mandalay - walkthroughs were filmed and will be posted as standalones. Le RĂªve was amazing. Steve super recommends the carrot cake at the Grand Lux Cafe at the Palazzo.

    I found these entertaining. Questions though, at one point you mentioned 1k coin in. Does that mean lost $1k or you multiplied the points you got by how much it takes to earn the points?

    Thanks so much. Yup I totally just kept an eye on the machine points, I might have checked my win/loss statement to see if that was moving as well (alcohol makes some of the specifics fuzzy), but no, I didn't lose $1k of physical cash. I'd be a lot more despondent I think. Lol

    Our final day is live! We still have a couple of walkthroughs to post, but this is the end of our daily vlogs for this trip. Thank you to all who have joined our in adventures of degeneracy (we definitely didn't go as hard towards the end)
