Las Vegas Hilton!  I got there at 8AM on an October Sunday morning to get seats.  I sat there until 430PM.  I had at least 20 free Coronas and 1 red bull-vodka.  Just tip the waitresses at least $1 per drink.  It was the best sports experience I have ever had.

Got a room there for 60 dollars for a Sunday night.  They gave me a $25 dollar gaming chip.

...thought that the timing was right to bump this thread from last year and see if there are any changes or different ideas from last year....

Legasse Stadium at Pallazzo might be an interesting addition...but, still like what LV Hilton always offers and Jay Kornegay is still the best director in Vegas for football.

pat....Gotta disagree....I've said many times here that I am a big fan of The M and Mike Colbert's team....also the ingame betting is tremendous. But watching at The M, at least in the sportsbook, is useless....only the VIP section has some of the comfortable chairs that were first in the book area before they did reconstruction. The book is strictly cubicles for betting or watching on a small screen.

Just a couple of miles down the road...The SouthPoint is far better for watching all the games....

M resort is low key and no noticeable smoke, a bit of a drive , but a cool place to spend the day,,

NO room in the sportsbook per say. like every thing else the M did, ex for their beer selection @ the bar by the sportsbook, it's halfassed and TOO SMALL. OK place to book BUT the South Point, which is close by, has a MUCH better Bar and Sportsbook area for watching games.

Went to Legasse's Stadium for the first time back in August. I thought it was great, but it lacks a certain "pizzaz" that the normal books seem to carry. The vibe in there is just a bit different- maybe it's the overpriced (but very good) bar food, and dark, laid back atmosphere. (Example - I think there was one guy in there napping on the longe-style seats)... Then again, it wasn't football season quite yet, so that could have something to do with it.

My fav book is Mandalay. I love that setup they got going there.
