Pick & rub in LV & NYC
April 15, 2008 5:59 AM   Subscribe

Recommendations for a good place to watch NBA playoff games in Las Vegas and good spa deals. Also, NYC playoff options...

I'll be in LV on 6 & 7 May and want to watch whatever playoff games are on. As a trade off, my better half wants a bit of a rub down.

We're staying at Bellagio so where do you think the best venues for each are?

Then we'll be in NYC for the weekend and staying in Hell's Kitchen. Again, good playoff viewing spots?

There's a sports book in nearly every casino with more TVs than you can even imagine. Grab a beer and find a seat. If you're betting on the games, you can ask for some free drink vouchers from the window, as well.

You'll have an easy time finding a sports book to watch them on the strip! I like the MGM Grand's sports book, but it's usually packed. Paris and Bally's have smaller books that are less crowded.

As for NYC, someone else will have to point you to the right bar.

Agree with the MGM Grand reccomendation. Heard the Wynn is pretty good too. Ceasar's has the biggest, I'm told.

For the rubdown, I like the Bathouse Spa (cheesy name, lovely space) at TheHotel at Mandalay Bay, much preferring it to Spa Mandalay (crowded, uncomfy) but that's a bit further down the strip. Have heard great things about Qua Spa at Caesar's but haven't been there.
