Off to Vegas this Sunday and was wondering if anyone knew of a decent book to watch the all the games. I know a few places open up their banquet rooms to show all the games but the games are not in HD (sorry, I am spoiled).

We were at Imperial Palace last year and it was okay (beers were like $4) but am hoping for some better suggestions.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks...Rick!

Bellagio is great, also you always have to check out the MGM grand.

You must go to the Bellagio, free booze and the sports book looks like shuttle launch command.

Oh man, if you were at IP all day for games, you were missing out on what Vegas can offer. One of the following are great books to watch games:

Mandalay Bay, Caesars, Bellagio, MGM

The Bellagio and Hilton.  Free drinks!! The Hilton won't as comfortable as far as the seating goes and it may be more difficult.

Ceasers Palace has always been a joke to me.  Poor tv's, bad lighting, and many more complaints.

I'd like to add to the LV Hilton (a negative).  The servers are very inconsistent. Just like tonight it took me over 20 minutes to get my drink and she is normally slow as hell. Also the position of the screens are nice, but why do my eyes feel blury now? Damn! It's like nose bleed seats.

The Bellagio waitresses are normally very fast.  I do prefer the Bellagio if I just want to watch two of the main games and know both will be on the big screen.  It's also very comfortable.

The Venetian is sneaky good.  Free booze, hot waitresses and tons of TV's.

Bellagio is the best but good luck getting a seat at the book after 8 am on an NFL Sunday.

The key is getting there 3hrs early to have a prime seat or else your sitting next to some smuck who dosen't know football. Get there early get your tout sheets ready your food,beer and then u can gamble 10straight hrs it's great to been sitting next to people who know what there doing so u can come up with solid bets it's fun when the whole group is cheering the same team u got!

Venetian is good but you have to bet at least $50 for a booze tkt. The Palms is great for MNF - free drink tkt $20 bet and they have giveaways MNF.

I like the Mirage but you have to play at least $100-200 for a drink but they have great and fast NFL Halftime plays posted with good numbers. VEGASCANUCK

LV Hilton

1) I'm there

2.Large non-smoking area with 11 screens (Barry Manilow theatre, up front. 1000+ seats).

3)  Smoking area has 13 (at least) huge screens for football,free drinks

free food for those with comp bracelets. Everybody seems to get comped somehow (get someone's  bracelet when they are done with it.) free drinks too.

There are designated non-smoking seats in this large area accessed through the doors next to the Man of War statue.

Waitress will serve you free drinks, usually without seeing your bet ticket but you better tip them....$1 per drink is standard.

Parking is tight. Get there early.     You can bet nearly any amount  on almost any sport, period, proposition you can think of.
