Without the hassle of drink tickets, as I plan on placing bets on Saturday to avoid possible not getting bets in.

The Bellagio: If you want a seat you better get there early.

Las Vegas Hilton: Plenty of room as the place is huge. The man cave is a smoke free area.

VS's first choice is the only place to go.....YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO MAKE A BET TO GET DRUNK!!....give her a buck and she'll keep coming back to you. Also....you can sit in the "race section" and see all the games...NEW LARGE SCREENS WERE JUST INSTALLED.

I wouldn't go off the Strip (the old Hilton) to a place that could close down any day and keeps cutting back on service

Bellagio did it smart.. and put the prep station right near the bar, sportsbook and poker room so they don't have to walk far to get them.

Yes take care of your waitress! My favorite pass time is playing poker while waiting for my friends visiting or whatever group I have hosting in town to get ready. I play tight.. and drink up! GG on the rocks is my drink of choice and I tip 3 bucks EVERY TIME, I have no issues paying 3 bucks for GG than $14 in the club/lounge we are going to. The cocktail waitress always makes sure I have one on her way back to and from regardless if its her "taking orders" run or not. And I always get grey goose, and yes you can tell the difference :)

Have fun on your trip!

I'm just about done with the Hilton as well. I had to place a bet for the week one games last week because I had to leave town on a business trip. I never really cared for their service because the ladies pass on a drink ticket.

The Bellagio truly is the only option, but the desk seats will most likely all be reserved for the NFL games, so get there early to get one of the non desk seats.

Awesome fella's appreciate the info!   Now everyone says get there early.  Ok how early is early.  I am use to 1pm games so 10am is pretty early as it is.  Granted I probably wont adjust by then but I imagine 10 am will come quick.

New screens within the last month...so sharp you can see them from the sportsbar/poker room area.....

...and , yes, you get (as I have said here many times) the same top shelf booze as the poker guys get....just tip.

The race seats get reserved by people staying in the hotel that want to watch sports....not bet the ponies.....You can still get a seat on most Sundays without much of a problem....The hotel guests don't usually show for the early games anyway...

Thanks.  Was phenominal.  Bellagio is definitely the place to be for drinks.  But the Venetian had the best tvs.  But was too friggin fun.  Had drinks including shots coming all day/night.

Football on the strip.. What a nightmare. IF you enjoy having to get there 2 house early to get seats for you party. exorbitant prices for food and snacks, the broke tourists left over after spending all their money at the strip club the night before, crying or whoo hooing because they went big and put their last 5 dollars down. 
M resort is nice, South point is comfortable for all day viewing. They have a nice room behind the south bar that is always fun. Red rock is cool but the screens are kinda high on the wall. They all have good books and no lines to put your bet down.

Bellagio was far from a nightmare.  It was excellent.  Typical local hating
