    Have been to party at Aria and Wynn. Both are great, but I think Aria is better food and seating. Will be at Aria again this year.

    It is just a couple days away now. Hope your offers are still good - they tend to fill up quickly.

    Any chance you could part with the other tickets to the other parties once you decide on a venue? :)
    I'd love to take my girlfriend to her first big game experience in Vegas!

    I've been to both the Venetian & Aria vip viewing parties. Since Aria is not available for you, here is my take on the Venetian party:

    * Pick your own seating among lots of round tables. Each table seats 8 people. Ballroom probably holds at least 50 tables, maybe more. I believe there was also some reserved seating, but the vast majority is open.
    * All you can eat - Stadium food (dogs, burgers, wings, nachos, etc), pastas, salads, deserts (ice cream sandwiches, chocolates, cookies, etc.), and assorted other eats.
    * All you can drink - includes liquors (grey goose, patron, etc., along with a variety of beers). They have bartenders, so you can get mixed drinks too. They have waitresses that come around for drink orders or you can just go right up to one of many bartenders. There is never a wait for a drink.
    * Tons of big screens. You can sit virtually anwhere and have a good view. There are giant screens that hang from the ceiling along with big 70+ inchers on all the walls. The best tables fill quick (ones directly in line with a big screen), so get in line at least an hour before they open the doors for entry. There is a 2nd entrance line several hundred feet beyond the first. It's usually a shorter line fore entry (hint hint go here).
    * Cheerleaders who are essentially door greeters.
    * Assorted stuff on the tables when you first enter (small nerf balls, beads, etc.). Keep what you want.
    * No big boards. Probably the thing I miss most as many casinos have these, where you win depending on the score at the end of each quarter.
    * Sports Betting - Venetian does not have a private betting booth inside the big game viewing party. However, just outside the Ballroom in the hallway they set one up. It's better than having to go to the sports book to cash winners or place a bet, but worse than having it inside the party. The line gets long just before the game, halftime, and at the end, so plan accordingly.
    * Good sound system with speakers blaring the game all over the room.
    * Bathrooms are outside the viewing party so you have to go for a walk to pee.

    Those are some of the things that come to mind off the top of my head. Overall it's a good party. I've seen the big game at 6 or 7 different casino viewing parties over the years. Whatever you decide, you will have a good time.

    The Aria food for their big game party was the best I've encountered in 13 years of Big Game parties. Seafood and other higher end foods were available. I must have eaten 4 dozen jumbo shrimp lol. The Aria viewing room is MASSIVE. It is the biggest ball room among all I've been too except for Mandalay Bay (but that was in a stadium and only the floor seats were utilized). The couch thing is a nice touch, but having a table has it's advantages too. Aria was a decent trek to the bathrooms and they didn't have betting inside (this was 3 superbowls ago). It seems like our couch location was pre-determined, so we didn't get to choose our location (my memory is a little fuzzy on this).

    The necessities are BIG screens with good picture, a good sound system, and a good view of the game. If that's all you have, you'll have a bitchen time. Aside from that, my preferences are big boards, a betting station inside for invited guests, and bathrooms close by. Basic stadium style food is fine by me and most of these 'invited guest viewing parties, have the same types of alcohol for consumption, so that's not a game changer. Anywhere you go will be lively, so for me it really comes down to some of the things I previously mentioned.

    Wherever you go, have fun. And if you go to the Venetian, keep an eye open for the big guy wearing a green VMB bracelet and playing blackjack.

    The Wynn party is pretty nice, reserved seating with nice couches, cheerleader brings over drinks and nice buffet of all sorts of food. Sports betting also available right there.
