    Where is the most fun place to watch football on Sundays? Looking at the 2nd game in the afternoon. How early do we have to get there to get a seat? Not that interested in betting or comps, maybe some food options would be nice. Does Lagasse's have a minimum per person food and beverage order? Thanks

    I have on info on Lagasse's Stadium, but remember games start at 10:00am. If you want a good spot at any sportsbook be prepared to be there by 8:30/9:00. You may get in for the 2nd game someplaces, but a lot of people plop there asses down for the duration!
    I have going for opening Sunday the last 4/5 years. We have 6 of us who check out different spots, we ck. in each with other and meet up wherever the best spots are saved. Bellagio is the best if you get there early enough and are able to grab som seats.

    Be there by 9 AM

    Pro football is the biggest money making sports for a sportsbook.

    I'll also have to agree with going to the Stat. Depending on the games, the theater for the 2nd set of games is usually only about 3/4 full if that. We tried Lagasse's one weekend and it never really emptied. Also at Lagasse's, unless you get the tiered seating, you can't see all the games at once.

    They have the CW's running to the kitchen to serve a small selection. We arrived early and were served some nice breakfast burrito's. I did not eat any lunch while there. The drinks were with tickets but our CW preferred those over cash for some reason and let me tell you she was bringing back some whoppers. They also had two blackjack tables set up in the back with some outstanding busty dealers which caused two of my buddies to become sidetracked for the second series of games throwing cards and staring at big boobs:drunk::drunk: Lots of different fans wearing their teams jerseys. I always hit the Bellagio for NCAA on Saturday but we really enjoyed the Strat for the NFL games.

    Going to LV for Thanksgiving weekend and thinking of staying downtown. The drawback there is football viewing. I love the 777 but only network games. Does the Nugget open up the big viewing room every Sunday?

    OK Pabst,

    For downtown football I would recommend checking out Gold Spike. They show most of the games at the bar. Great drink service there too.

    The Pub at Monte Carlo is a good place to grab a seat for the later game and get some food. People rarely sit there all day, so by the time of the late games, you can usually get a table

    The 1st set of games has a small breakfast. Breakfast burritos and things like that. Toward the end of the 1st games they start wings, fries, nachos etc. Decent prices on pitchers too!

    Two years ago we were staying at Main Street and decided to give the Nugget our Sunday NFL business. The book as you know was is small and was packed. The larger show room was not open. Ticket system for drinks and it was sooo slow we just took turns going out into the casino to grab a beer. This of course led us to trying the Strat last year. Short cheap cab ride from downtown. :poke::poke:

    I come to vegas every year for the first week of the NFL. This year is a little extended with the first game being on a Wednesday (thanks Obama). We like the Wynn, Mirage and Bellagio best, but Caesers has a nice open book too. Drink tickets are a pain, but we also bring 2 small coolers that will hold 6 cans of beer, they fit perfect in between or underneath seat. We use the drink tickets for specialty drinks like congnac and white russians.

    This year we are staying at the Mirage Sept 5-11.

    I think I posted a thread listing the odds at a few sportsbook. I remember the Tropicana had the best odds. Slightly more than the Riviera and others around town.

    If you're looking for odds.

    Planet Hollywood had a small book but for some reason I remember it being open where I sat and watched a game last year. I must have been on the casino floor looking into the sportsbook.
