Vegas hot spots for catching the World Series

caesarsIt’s that time of year: Game 1 of the World Series is Wednesday night, which means it’s time to kick back with a drink and watch the national pastime, as the best of the NL and AL face off. There are plenty of choices for catching a game in Vegas, so we’ve narrowed some of them down for you:

PBR Rock Bar celebrates the World Series with buckets of five, 24-ounce Bud Lights for $18 and a two-for-$7 deal. The bar is located at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. Rangers fans might want to try their Texas Dog, topped with jalapeños and melted onions, but PBR’s selection of comfort food and barbecue will keep any fan’s appetite satisfied.

Located near PBR, Blondies sports more than 40 big screens — including a 12 -foot projection screen that’s perfect for catching the Fall Classic. They’ll be serving up $20 all-you-can-drink draft and well drinks from 3 to 6 p.m. on weekdays. The vibe here is more of a traditional sports bar feel, with sports memorabilia throughout and a menu of wings, nachos and plentiful beer.

The Pub at Monte Carlo has more varieties of beer than you’ll know what to do with – 300. Lucky for you, there’s no such thing as “too many kinds of beer.” Weekday specials include two-for-one well drinks and selected domestic drafts while you catch the game on one of their big screens.

Lagasse’s Stadium at the Palazzo offers $5 beers, $15 buckets, $20 specialty cocktail pitchers, plus a menu of $5 appetizers. Enjoy the game on some of more than 100 TVs, including a 9 by 16 foot main screen, with stadium-style seating that combines the sports bar and sports book experiences with a cool lounge atmosphere.

Speaking of sports book experiences, visiting the Caesars Palace  sports book is a must-do for any bettor or sports enthusiast, and the World Series is a perfect experience for it. It’s located right by Mesa Grill, which could make for a great post-game meal. The Hilton’s “Superbook,” and the MGM Grand’s book are excellent choices as well, the latter even offering skyboxes for its guests – if you’re inclined toward a more luxurious experience.
