TOP 6 Las Vegas Big Game Watch Parties
Do you ever have déjà vu? That’s right, woodchuck-chuckers – it’s…GROUNDHOG DAY! Tom Brady aka TB12 like “Punxsutawney Phil” casts a shadow more often than not on future forecasts. In this case, it is not six more weeks of winter, but rather six Super Bowl wins!
The Super Bowl aka “Big Game” to all non-NFL licensees, plays out the same… year… after year… after year…. like the classic movie Groundhog Day starring Billy Murray. Ripped from a scene of the movie I hit the alarm at 6:00 A.M. every Super Bowl Sunday to hear Sonny & Cher sing “I Got You Babe”, and relive a championship game with Tom Brady at the helm of the Patriots poised to win yet another championship and ring!
For those who have not read or are not familiar with my past penning’s, do not think for one moment that I am being sarcastic. My love for Tom Brady has not faded even though I now proudly wear the black and silver for the soon to be Las Vegas Raiders. All one has to do is see my blog from last year- TOM BRADY: G.O.A.T. (GREATEST OF ALL TIME) to see my support, devotion, and prediction of his Super Bowl victory and MVP trophy to know that I am and continue to be a fanatical fan, and a proud member of Brady’s Bunch!
As unfortunate as it may be, I will not be in Minneapolis on game day. Fortunately, I am here in Las Vegas which is the next best thing! No one throws a party like Vegas, and quite honestly there is no better place to be than on or near the Strip to bet, watch, or celebrate. Las Vegas event planners know that our city reigns supreme for all things…SUPER! (Bowl or not)
With hundreds of places to watch Super Bowl LII (52), it can be overwhelming trying to decide exactly where to see it. In keeping with all things six (6): six months of winter, six championships, six rings I bring to your attention as a Las Vegas DMC: TOP 6 Las Vegas Big Game Watch Parties.

WESTGATE LAS VEGAS RESORT CASINO
Westgate is football central! Home of Las Vegas’ #1 sports book – SuperBook – located on Paradise Road, fans can schmooze with NFL Hall of Famer Bob Griese in the resort’s International Theater, the same room Elvis played for years in the 1970s.
Also during the ‘70s, the quarterback led the Miami Dolphins in three Super Bowl games, including two wins. There’s free seating on the balcony, but seats on the main floor cost $100 each. The price includes unlimited food and beverages. The Westgate SuperBook is the biggest and best! After all, it’s where good teams win, and great teams cover!
“IT’S ALWAYS THE PATRIOTS IN THE SUPERBOWL AND THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT!”
Bill Murray played Groundhog Day character Phil Connors; an arrogant Pittsburgh TV weatherman. Imagine if you will, his commentary for the Big Game. “Well, it’s Sunday … again… and that must mean we’re up here at the Super Bowl waiting for a win from the world’s most famous quarterback, Tom Brady, who’s just about to show us how many more championship rings we can expect.”
Groundhog Day is a classic, and Tom Brady is a class act. Now, go hit a tailgate buffet and don’t bet the house against a winner. Here’s to a super, Super Bowl Sunday!
