    Trips to Las Vegas:

    Morning,

    I just signed up because my wife and I are traveling to Vegas on Jan 31st. I'm trying to find a Super Bowl party on or near the Strip. Need to have guarantee seating, no standing room only, gotta have a seat. Don't want to spend a metric shit ton of money for the party, but I understand that I'll have to spend something.

    I will keep an eye the SB party thread, but if anybody has ideas, don't hesitate to shout out. This will be my 7th time there an my 7th and 8th different hotel (switching hotels for trade show on Monday after SB).

    Thanks

    Welcome! I am also from NW illinois. I've gone several times over Super Bowl. While I receive party invites we never go. We have much better times at a bar. We've done Mirage sports book, The front bar at Paris (Gustavo's?). But the place we had the most fun at was at Stratosphere 's sports bar, of all places. If you go the bar route, you HAVE to get there several hours before kickoff to secure a table or bar side table. We enjoy playing VP and getting our free drinks

    I know there are others on here that go to a "Big Game" party (can't call it Super Bowl, lol) every year and hopefully will chime in.

    Have fun!!
