Playing The Field: Sunday’s Big Game Day Events In Las Vegas
The Big Game is a big deal in a gambling city like Las Vegas. On Sunday, Feb. 2, beer will be flowing, people will be yelling, bets will be won and big-time parties will be happening all over town. Whether you wager on the Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos, get in on the game day action with multiple events around the Strip.
Even the casino bars celebrate, and will be featuring $8 Skyy, Patron, Patron XO, Jagermeister, Wild Turkey and Cruzan drink specials in every Caesars Entertainment property. Total Vegas has the full rundown of events, but here are our favorite highlights for Super Sunday parties, from “man cave” VIP experiences to buffets and big screens.
With several monster flat screens, The Linq’s sizzling new Mexican hot spot, Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Bar is an ideal retreat to watch the game. Along with its Corona beer bucket deal, well drinks and house margaritas are two-for-one. Go buck wild with its food specials, such as the Chayo nachos with pulled pork. The best deal in the house might be its two lobster or carnitas tacos with a draft beer for just $10.
Gordon Ramsay Burger
The creative burgers by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay are so popular, there’s often a long line just to get in to the Planet Hollywood Resort eatery. On Sunday, enjoy its ticketed Big Game festivities, with an open bar and food credit. Nosh on its truffle fries, Devil Dogs and sticky toffee pudding push pops and pair with craft beers and specialty cocktails.
Hearty Italian favorites and all-American game day food combine at Carmine’s NYC at The Forum Shops at Caesars – but the best part about this longstanding favorite might just be its party trays. As much a take-out hot spot as it is a restaurant, Carmine’s is known for its killer deals on half and full size party trays of eggplant parmigiana, baked ziti, meatball and lasagna. Twenty four-hour marinated spicy chicken wings and flavorful platters of over-stuffed hero sandwiches are also top picks to order up to your hotel room. An Italian buffet-style set up and open bar pass will also be offered inside the restaurant, featuring 10 televisions and guaranteed seating.
Pure at Caesars Palace is going to up the ante this Sunday, transforming from a swanky nightclub to a daytime sports lovers den with its ultimate viewing party. With 18 plasma HD televisions, premium seating and VIP table experiences, begin with its Bud Light and cocktail specials. Then, nosh on focaccia pizza, BBQ pork sliders, dirty chip “nacho,” zesty chicken wings and more while you cheer on your team.
Flamingo Las Vegas’ rowdy Carlos’n Charlie’s can get wild just about any day of the week, especially on football’s biggest day of the year. It kicks it up a notch during the Big Game, with a ticketed party featuring two different tiers: all-you-can-eat buffet, or add on all-you-can-drink to that for another $100.
For a more gourmet touch your game day afternoon, head to the sophisticated Rao’s at Caesars Palace, known for its historical Italian family recipes. As you watch the action unfold, expect quite the spread here, with fried artichokes with garlic butter, mini meatball and mozzarella hoagies, potato wedges with bacon, chili, Caesar salad and chicken wings.
