    Im not a big NFL fan but i know its a huge deal in Vegas and since if gonna be there that day i was wondering what kind of a day it was.

    I know the sportsbook will be packed and that almost every hotel/bar will have a viewing party so will this mean that most of the regular restaurant/buffet will be pretty quiet that day?

    Around what time will the game end?

    After the game except for the long lines at the sportsbook window, are most of the shows/restaurants empty that night

    Are most people fying out/driving out sunday night or monday morning?

    During the game is the city/casino floor like a ghost town or just full of women lol ?

    Vegas is a great place to be for the Super Bowl. I was there the year the Packers beat the Steelers (2011) and we watched it at the House of Blues in Mandalay Bay. The sports book had huge lines of people waiting to cash their tickets. Wait until the next day if you have a winner, what's the rush? Not sure about how packed the shows are, but you have to remember, there are tons of people in town that could give 2 shits less about the NFL, especially the foreigners. I remember the day after some friends wanted to see the Pawn Stars shop and the line was huge, we went on Tuesday and the whole city was dead.

    I was in Vegas once on Super Bowl Sunday. It was a while back, at the game in which the Patriots were 14-point underdogs. We found casinos to be exceptionally busy before and during the game. We arrived in the afternoon and I could not get to the window to place my wager. Shut out!

    The game is three hours earlier than the time on the East Coast. Town will clear out starting around 7 p.m. because of all the people returning by car to SoCal. Hotel rooms were cheap Sunday the year I went.
