Sorry. I meant to say “Big Game Parties”. All eyes will be on Vegas this year for the game and virtually every casual restaurant and bar in town will have some package that Sunday. From my browsing, the minimum price to reserve a seat hovers around $150 but gets higher the better and more luxurious the location. A couple of inexpensive casino options are Plaza’s Big Game Party at $125, which includes buckets of beer and a buffet, and the tailgate at Sahara’s Azilo pool, which costs $140 per person and offers an open bar. There are non-casino/sportsbook parties to look out for as well. It’s a big day in Vegas, so any place with a TV will likely be hosting some sort of “bash”.
However, you don’t need to break the bank to watch the game with a crowd. Technically, you don’t need to even break out the wallet. Here are three places you can watch the Super Bowl for free:
As usual, the SuperBook at Westgate is hosting its free viewing party. If you’ve never been and are a sports betting fan, the SuperBook is a must-visit. If you’re on a budget, you might as well make it out during the Super Bowl for your first go. There’ll be entertainment and food and beverages for purchase. The open seats are first come, first serve, as they are every Sunday, but you can reserve tables and booths ahead of time if you have a group, but they’ll cost you at least $1000+.
Beyond hosting their yearly bash, the SuperBook is known for being one of the better books to secure drink tickets:
If you’re thinking of a last-minute trip into town, Westgate has the best package I’ve seen. You can get a three-night stay and two tickets to their Super Pigskin Party at their event center with free food and beverages, for $479.
DTLV Events Center
If you want some fresh air, the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center has a free outdoor bash. You have the option to upgrade to a reserved table or “mancave”. No word if women are allowed. The DTLV Events Center is a cool space and, while I’ve never been there for gameday, it has plenty of space to move around at your leisure.
Let me know of your favorite place to watch the game in Vegas even if you have to pay. I know some great deals are lurking out there.
