    Depends on where you stay. Sportsbooks are packed and almost impossible to get unless you get there really early. Most places have watch parties that include food and drink. Strip minimum for craps will usually be $25 with maybe one $10 table. Downtown will probably be $10 with maybe one $5. Ive been probably 10 times during the first weekend, if you have any questions i can try and answer. With St Pattys day being that week this year that will add to the craziness

    I love first weekend of MM in Vegas - increased costs excepted from that statement. I've never been for the 2nd weekend (Sweet 16 and Elite 8) but find myself coming out for that weekend this year - any idea how the crowds/limits will be? I'm anticipating a typical Vegas weekend, but am also pondering sticking exclusively DT with the Strip is going to be a ripoff.
     
    First trip of 2021 - hopefully.

    Second round of MM is GREAT. Less crowd and great cocktail service. I did the first round for 20 plus years but nixed that about 10 years ago and haven't regretted that since. Maybe not as exciting but it's still MM.

    So many mobile apps now (Mgm, Caesars, William Hill, Circa, etc) have made betting much easier. Thursday and Friday are crazy, Saturday and Sunday not nearly as bad. Have the VIP viewing passes at Flamingo's party. It's nice up there, they have about 6 ticket stations that only the viewing guests can use. At Flamingo the 17th-23rd. I have 4 of the passes available for Saturday if anyone is interested in purchasing them. Inbox me for details if interested.
