VEGAS.com Embraces the Madness by Offering College Basketball Enthusiasts Irresistible Viewing Venues for the Final Games


March 29, 2011 - LAS VEGAS, NV

The championship college basketball tournament is underway and fans have flooded Las Vegas' sports books and bars to bet on their bracket and catch all the live action. As the teams dwindle from 68 to the ultimate four, VEGAS.com has proven itself to be the guru of the best Vegas viewing venues to cheer on your team and enjoy a game day feast. Don't miss a free throw, foul or game winning basket as the last four teams take the court and battle for the title. Las Vegas' tournament hotspots include:

ARIA Race & Sports Book: Place your bets in a comfortable environment at the 10,000-square-foot Race & Sports Book. Conveniently located off the casino floor, guests can relax on comfortable couches or in chairs with separate monitors. A total of 90 screens are placed throughout the sports book, and the attached SKYBOX Sports Bar & Grill offers great eats throughout the game. There are also two big screen televisions for the ultimate viewing experience.

Caesars Palace Race and Sports Book: Pleasantly dark and atmospheric, the Caesars Palace Race and Sports Book is a quintessential Las Vegas "mega-book." Within the cavernous and exciting venue there are plenty of seats with individual TV monitors for horseplayers, and race and sports fans alike can follow the action on several monstrous TV screens and an ample number of smaller monitors. Plus, when hunger hits, Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill is only steps away.

Excalibur Race & Sports Book: Excalibur will offer its own game of beer pong in the Race & Sports Book, as well as $20 pitchers during the basketball games. Lounges such as Octane, The Lounge and Jester join the madness with $25 domestic beer buckets and $5 Skyy vodka cocktail specials. All lounges have premium televisions to view the action, including drop-down screens at Octane and The Lounge.

Lagasse's Stadium at the Palazzo: Lagasse's Stadium at the Palazzo features luxurious seating with plenty of pillows to sink into and watch your favorite game. A highlight of this sports-viewing mecca comes in the form of a large, 10-foot by 20-foot projection screen, complete with stadium style seating. Even better, Lagasse's Stadium at the Palazzo also has a full bar and tasty menu designed by Emeril Lagasse.

MGM Grand Race & Sports Book: This modernistic, sleekly designed sports book offers an expansive, state-of-the-art vantage point into the game. Even more, the VIP seats here create harbors for serious sports aficionados. Just off the sports book, revelers will find the architectural and mechanical mastery of the Centrifuge Bar.

Planet Hollywood's Race and Sports Book: Despite its intimate size, Planet Hollywood's Race and Sports Book is cleverly designed, making every seat perfect. Seating areas are arranged stadium-style, and the 20 TVs are strategically placed on the bottom level for optimum viewing. The surrounding sports bar is a comfortable, modern place to enjoy a drink and catch some action with additional seating and TVs.

The Pub at Monte Carlo: The Pub will show tournament games on more than 30 televisions throughout the venue. Guest can enjoy pub food and as well as indulge in an extensive selection of 89 distinctive beers on tap and 121 bottled beers includes an international variety of ales, lagers and stouts.

Pyramid Café: Pyramid Café at Luxor is offering great deals on its menu throughout the tournament. Specialty dishes include the filet and eggs with hash browns and toast as well as the monster appetizer platter featuring breaded ravioli with marinara sauce, buffalo shrimp, BBQ wings and onion rings.

The Sporting House Bar & Grill: The Screening Room at New York-New York will broadcast games on two 16-foot, high-definition screens, a dozen 36-inch, high-definition video monitors and individual monitors at every table. Additional televisions are in both the men's and ladies' restrooms so fans won't miss any of the action!
