    Looking for the best place to watch the World Series Downtown. Doesn't necessarily need to be a sportsbook, I've had my money down since February. Things that are important to me are: Cheap/Reasonably priced drinks, Good TVs, and actually being able to hear the game instead of loud pumping bass. Some decent scenery wouldn't be bad either. Thanks in advance. Go Tigers!

    I do not know if all that you are asking for is available anywhere!!

    Lets see here, Golden Nugget is the nicest, they will have the sound, and drink tickets are a 100 bet gets you 2 drink tickets. Otherwise bottles of beer are 4 bucks at the bar.

    Fremont is not that big, small tvs, and 2 Coronas. Plaza is a freaking dump. You can sit at the long bar at the D and watch the game, but I do not know drink prices. They will probably have the sound on since the Tigers are in.

    Other than that, good luck.

    I like the Gold Spike for the situation you describe. They have good TVs at the bar. If you play bar top VP while watching, your drinks will be free. Otherwise you can just sit at the bar and drinks are mostly in the $2 to $3 range. If you decide you want to make another bet, the sports book is adjacent to the bar. If you get hungry, you can order food at the bar from their restaurant, and the food there is cheap and pretty good. They will have the sound on for the game.

    I always found The Plaza sports book to be comfortable and reasonably priced with comfortable chairs and a good view from parts of the bar. Some interesting people around for watching and talking to as well. The Fremont provides a more compact environment, and generally there are few people around,but I always felt right at home there. Games are viewable from parts of the bar and the not-too-comfortable seats.

    I was kinda thinking along the same lines. Is it bad that I'm going to be doing the same thing while on vacation that I would be at home? :beer: Nah, it's the World Series! At least it will force me to take a little break from the tables........

    Enjoy! If Joe the bartender is working there, he's a good guy to talk sports betting with. Plus he's the only older white male I've met with a grill in his mouth. The female bartenders that I've seen there are typically pretty cute.

    I'll be there next month watching football on Thanksgiving day. A break from the tables indeed.

    I would say the D. With the Tigers in the Series and the D being a tribute to Detroit thing, the D should be full of baseball fans. Maybe someplace else if you're a Giants fan!
