Ever wondered what spending a day with Jordan Brand in Las Vegas was like? Let me take you on a visual journey of one of the dopest events that has gone down this year. TSG exclusively covered the Jordan Brand 'First to Fly' event in Vegas which was also open to the public. I had a lot of fun, allow me to show you:

Is there any greater shoe to rock to a Jordan event than the "Bred" Air Jordan 1? Nope. I put on the classic tube socks for that true 80's feel.

The last thing I would expect to do at an Air Jordan event is to bowl, but I couldn't complain at all. Everything was Marvin the Martian themed and they even made the bowling lanes glow in the dark. Dope!

After a tour of the entire venue, Jordan Brand made me cheat on my barber by offering a free hair cut. Would you turn it down? Lol.

Here's the area everyone rushed to first, the dedicated retail pop-up shop inside of the event. From exclusive apparel, to pins, stickers, and oh yeah... RESTOCKS! Shattered Backboard Air Jordan 1's came back, Red 11Lab4's, and more.

This jacket is flaaaaames! But that $275 price tag is not fire at all. Shout out to the #BallinOnABudgetGang!

The Jordan Brand First to Fly event was in celebration of Blake Griffin's newest shoe the Jordan Super.FLY 4. It arrives in a 'Marvin the Martian' colorway which is the reason why the entire event is themed around the Looney Tunes character. The shoes and apparel were available early only at this event and will officially release on August 5th.

Okay... I've been eyeing the food section since I walked in. It's time to grub, man! Pizza, sliders, chicken tenders, and Mac n Cheese. I totaled about 3 plates. Free food and it's unlimited? You would have done the same, ha!

Jordan Brand set up this crazy LED court to simulate different planets based on Marvin the Martian's adventures. AAU athletes were given the opportunity to wear-test the SuperFly 4 during a dunk contest and dribbling drills.

Ayeeeee! LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard, and Jimmy Butler came through to speak to fans and talk about their first pair of Jordans they remember getting. You can read about that right here.

That's a wrap folks! Free food, restocks, NBA players, and a free hair cut... I'd say that's a damn good day! Jordan Brand really knows how to throw events. It's crazy to see how much of a culture was created through Michael Jordan. And to see him give back to his supporters and young athletes is awesome. The Jordan Brand 'First to Fly' event was held over 3 days and was open to the public for free. Until next time, it's Ray P signing out!
