    So I'm heading out to a conference in Vegas on Sunday and it looks like the Pats/Jets is regional 4:00 EST. I'll be there plenty early enough, just not sure if it will be on local channels there. Going with co-workers who are also fans, as of now our plan is to hit a nice sports book, but its only my 2nd time out there and wanted to see what everyone thought would be the best game experience out there. All you Vegas Pats fans, chime in!!!

    Mandalay Bay sports book is a good place to watch the game. There are far better places to watch the game in Vegas. Almost every bar/resturant will have the game on. I will be at a place called CAVALIERS which is on Desert Inn and Sand Hill. It is a Patriot bar and is a great place to watch the game. Lots of HD Flat screen TVs and will be surrounded by New Englander's. A short cab ride from the strip.

    I work weekends so I can't give good advice on where to go except when you get here check out the sports books at the hotels around where you are staying.

    LV Pat's idea seems to be a good shot. But if you go the sports book route, remember to get there early, 1st game kicks off @ 10am. We get all the games and you can bet any game or half on the cheap. Sports bettors are friendly and its not a bad way to spend a sunday.

    Thanks everyone, I wasn't sure what would be televised at the sports books, I like to be able to watch and hear the game not sure which ones have "your own TV's", and to be able to get a good chair/location may be tougher for a 4pm EST game. CAVALIER's sounds like it could be great if its a Patriots bar, I'd love to be surrounded by Pats fans. I will definately look into that. Thanks everyone!

    I also just recently moved to Vegas. It was my first Pats game away. I have the NFL Ticket, but watching games at home kinda suck. I will def check out this Cavaliers place. Thanks for the info.

    Sports Book at the Bellagio is nice, as is the one at the Mirage. They charge you for drinks at Ceasars, not at the Mirage or the Bellagio. You have to get there early to get a seat though.

    agreed, but when i'm watching the pats I want to be able to watch it, concentrate on it and be around good folks. I have a few other vegas favorites when I'm just looking for some fun :)

    Here is a link to info on Cavaliers. It is a Patriot sports bar. Very exciting to say the least. Give-a-ways, raffles, food and more...check it out. I have been there several times and will probably be there this weekend.

    Sportsbooks are a very overrated place to watch games unless you really don't care about one game over the other and just want to track what is going on for ever game (March Madness for example) or the morning games when the Pats are not playing. Even then, the sports books aren't as good as say the Hilton or even Imperial Palace which set up their theaters with 8 or more big screens. In the sports books you tend to get surrounded by college kids going crazy over every play that effects the over-under on their $10 bet which gets very distracting.

    As for Pats bars there used to be a great on Flamingo east of the strip a mile or so called the Boston but they closed down years ago (anyone remember that one?). Most of those folks ended up at new place off the 215 (20 minutes west of the Strip) called the Cauldron that was great for about two seasons and then things went bad with the management and owners. The bar may still be open but I don't believe it's a Pats hangout anymore.

    PT's is a chain that has many locations all over Vegas and at one point they were trying to make one of them a Pats bar but I don't believe that ever caught on. Its still a good place to watch a game though.

    Blondies in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood is a good sports bar and you can save yourself some money by buying a restaurant.com gift certificate.

    I've heard about the Cavalier but never been there. From what I hear its an older place but that shouldn't prevent you from checking it out if indeed a good # of Pats fans do show up.

    When I lived in Vegas I use to just go down to the corner pub. They all have all the games and will put on any that you want. You may not get sound in a sports book. I hated games starting at 10 AM :p. Glad I moved back east.

    Quick follow up. We were staying at the Palazzo and when checking in were told to check out their new sports book. My buddies didn't want to thinking it would be like the other ones, but I'm glad I made them. This place is amazing. I guess it had opened during kickoff weekend and there hundreds of TV's, with private booths/couches you can get to watch what you want. and in the middle is a HUGE projection setup with stadium like couches. The pats were on the big one, with the audio piped through the whole place so it was by far the best place to watch. Even if not on the big one, if you're there early enough you can get a private tv to pick what you want. Used to be the 40/40 club, now its just Palazzo Sports Book. It was a blast, although food/drinks weren't that cheap.
