My thought on that would be a fun restaurant that would have a big screen tv and be able to set up a table for 10. Obivously, you would have to guarantee a certain level of food/drink that your party would have and use a credit card, up front, to reserve that table.
Using NY-NY again, as an example, their Irish pub, Nine Fine Irishmen, has great pub food and a large screen tv set up for football. It's a 2-minute walk to the sportsbook. They might be open to taking a guaranteed reservation for that Sunday.
Next door, Monte Carlo has Diablo's and The Pub, which always shows the UFC pay-per-view fights..so they can also set up for groups and big screen tv's. I'm sure that every hotel will have a pub/restaurant that you can book a large table for the game.....just a matter of guaranteeing a level of business for the restaurant...and that's where your credit card comes in.
Since you are not VIP-level for a private party, the restaurant direction would be the way I would go. You have to eat and drink anyway, right?
