    We will be in LV for the 2nd weekend of the tourney and would like suggestions where we could watch enjoy the games. We are staying at Bally's this trip and thought their sportsbook might work. Any other suggestions?

    Lagasse's Stadium (or Staydgheeum as Jerry Jones would say). I would call for reservations right now.

    Lagasse's Stadium is very nice, but during games there is usually a fairly significant minimum spend (at least there is during opening week of MM each year).

    I would expect that you would be able to find seats in whichever Sportsbook you prefer on that weekend. If you want to sit in a sports bar, either the Sporting House at NYNY or the Pub at MC would be less expensive than Lagasse's Stadium.

    Enjoy!

    All I know is bellagio does not serve free drinks to everyone in their book anymore. I was there 2 weeks ago and new policy is 1 drink ticket per 120 bet.

    My wife and I will be in town that weekend to take in some basketball as well. In that past we have stayed midstrip and spend most of our time at Caesars Palace watching final four games. Really like the crowds at each location, lots of folks getting into the action.

    On our last trip we ventured south and tried the book at MGM. Had a fantastic time, not a large as Caesars but still a great crowd. Based on our last trip we are actually staying at MGM this year. We will probably spend most of our time there.

    I have heard good things about the sports book at the Bellagio and Mandalay Bay. We may wander down to MB but I am not sure if we will venture back up towards Bellagio.

    Enjoy your trip.

    Longbar at The D was great, for drinking and NCAA game watching last year. Just don't play their VP bartops, the paytables suck!
