Episode 87 Minnesota Wine, Cheese and Crackers

Episode 87

For episode 87, Steve is back from Las Vegas. He fills everyone in on Jenny and Nathans wedding, Luxor, Hyper X Gaming, and Hell’s Kitchen. In addition, we try wine imported from Minnesota as well as a blueberry cheese with crackers. For movie and TV reviews we look at Hunters, Knives Out, Pete Davidson: Alive from New York, and Taylor Tomlinson: Quarter-Life Crisis.


  • Jenny and Nathan Witt, married in Las Vegas at Treasure Island.

Las Vegas Trip

  • Luxor Hotel – Didn’t like a timeshare, the key to use an elevator, and no drink stations
  • Michael Jackson the One – Cirque du Soleil Show. Not worth $136 a ticket. 
  • Steve’s special spa day
  • Sports Book Adventure – 2 bets on XFL, 4 Bets on UFC and 4 NCAA bets, Burt bet for White socks.
  • Luxor Hyper X Gaming Arena – $15 for an hour of gaming on high-end PC worth $3700. The arena has the main stage for winners as well as bar and lounge area to play console games. Tournaments for just $10 to enter, didn’t get the chance. 

Restaurant Review

  • Hell’s Kitchen – Just like the one on the show. The food was really good. Little pricey but expected. Kitchen set up with red and blue teams, you can see the whole kitchen, all the winners were on the wall.
