Vegas for the SB - any suggestions?

    Previous SB plans have fallen through, so I'm now planning on going to Vegas. I've been to LV a bunch of times, love the place, but I've never been out there for this. With that, I ask my SportsJournalists.com brethren who are in Vegas or know what's happening: what's the best plan of action for this Super Bowl Sunday?

    I know they've nixed official casino SB parties because the NFL has a stick up its ass about Vegas, but is there anything good going on in town ties in with the game? Is there a way to reserve a seat in a sports book? All suggestions welcomed and appreciated.

    I've never been there for the Super Bowl ... err, The Big Football Game ... but I'm sure most casinos will have parties for it.

    Having been in Vegas for several Super Bowl's I can tell you there will be some parties at the casinos and the sports books will be packed.. other than that, don't expect too much else. I'm actually headed to Vegas on Super Bowl Sunday but will be flying during the game (great planning on my part, eh?).

    Watching KU-Iowa State, Ravens-Colts and Eagles-Saints at the Caesar's sportsbook was great. Not sure where else to go to watch games, but I had no complaints (short of cigar smoke from the guys next to us) there.

    Frontier also has TV. Very cool.

    Last time I went to Vegas when it was Super Bowl weekend was the year the Steelers lost to the Cowboys with Switzer as coach. Me and my friends partied and gambled in Vegas all weekend, but since we knew we had a long drive home, we left Vegas and watched the game at the stateline casinos so we'd at least have a headstart on the rest of the people driving back to SoCal that Sunday night.

    An overrated, expensive experience, unless (a) you've got comp connections, and/or (b) you have solid insights into some of the hundreds of proposition bets not broadly available elsewhere that are posted at some of the leading books . . .
