So as I'm sure you all know I'm heading to Vegas on the 6th. Wasn't going to bother really sitting down to watch an entire football game while I was out there cause my girlfriend could careless, but now that the Steelers (my home town team) are going to be playing on Sunday, me and the ol' lady want to find a nice place to sit down, get loaded, and watch the game. 

We are going to the statosphere champagne brunch to get sloppy then heading wherever for the start of the game (1:30 vegas time) but dont know where to go. I was thinking the Bellagio sports book so I can make a wager and drink for free (since i'm a cheap behind) but I i'm not sure if that's the setting she would really appreciate. I'm sure there's tons of good sports bars near the strip, but to be honest I'm not too familiar with any. 

Any suggestions? 

Maybe someplace to grab an appetizer or a small meal and relatively decent priced drinks?

If you're at the Stratosphere then you're nearby the LV Hilton, best and biggest sportsbook in Vegas!!! They have cheap $2.00 budweisers on gamedays and $1.00 hot dogs

Thanks man. I was looking to Lagasse's Stadium at the Palazzo, but I read that they have a $50 minimum on regular games and a $100 minimum per person on big games such as the playoffs. Seems a bit too steep just to watch the game and drink some beers.

I'll have to see what the woman wants to do. If all else fails I'll just go to the Bellagio sports book. Leather seats and free booze. Can't really beat that.

There are a ton of places that would be better than sitting in a book with the wife.  Lagasse's is the garbage but if you dont want to drop the cash, try the Skybox sports cafe in Aria... its next to the sports book.  Also try the new burger joint in the Mirage, don't remember what its called but I was in Vegas a few weeks ago and that place looks pretty cool and decently priced.  The former sportszone in the NY-NY or find somewhere in Planet Hollywood, the MGM or Hard Rock to watch it.
