Hey all, Heading out for the first weekend of the tourney. We have a slightly larger group than usual (6 people) and not everyone is going to be that into the games, so we were thinking rather than paying $100ish for tickets we would just head downtown so we could avoid paying a bunch of money and being locked down to one venue. That said, I have been put in charge of coordinating this and I have very limited experience hanging out downtown...I've been down there but don't know anything about the various books or potential bars/restaurants where we could set up shop. For Friday, I'm thinking we'd probably have to get down there by 8 or 8:30 to get anywhere...correct? Just looking for some suggestions on where would be a good place for us to land. Looking for food and drinks quality, TV setups, and access to betting windows, and access to craps tables...probably in that order. Much appreciated. The Stratosphere was the only other option we have thought of, so let me know if there are any other thoughts outside of the box...we've committed to cab rides from the Mirage.
