    Have a tentative trip planned for September for football season. Been to vegas 10 times but haven't been inside the California for Main Street. Either of them have a decent sports book? I get in late Thursday and plan on gambling most of Friday if the el co since I have a multiplier there but wanted to check out the cal and mss and that only leaves Saturday since I'm moving to the strip on Sunday. If their sports books suck, either have a good bar to play vp at close to a sports book?

    Main Street Station does not have a sports book, but The Cal does. I don't care very much for The Cal's sports book because none of the TVs are HD. The 777 Brewpub has HDTVs, but no video poker at the bar. Still a nice place to have some food and drinks and watch a game though.

    The best sports book downtown in my opinion is at The Plaza. It is a William Hill sports book. Lots of big HDTVs and comfortable seating.

    One of the better VP bars in terms of set up to watch games downtown at is LongBar at The D. The problem is the pay tables at Long Bar aren't very good. The sports book is upstairs at The D. The better VP bar at the D is the Vue Bar upstairs. There are two TVs at that bar; not too bad if your game is on one of them. Best VP game at Vue Bar is Bonus Poker as it features a progressive on the Straight Flush and 4OAK 5s-Kings. The Vue Bar would put you close to the small sports book too; also a William Hill book.

    What JIMbo said. I'm not a Plaza fan at all. I have never seen the casino as anything but dead
    I'd book my bets at the Cal and head for the boar's head at MSS for full play JOB. Only issue is games available, I think they only have broadcast at the bar. Head into 777 for choice of games.

    Ha ha! I know it wasn't intentional. I got a kick out of it.
