 Welcome to LVAdvice Woodbutcher!

I have no interest in UFC so I can't be of much help but I'm sure some of the folks on our friendly forum will have lots of good info for you. UFC is owned by the Stations casinos owners, the Fertittas, so that might be a start.

Most people have more than the average number of legs.

Just call me the "quad kickers" of deuces wild and double bonus poker.

Welcome to the site!

Welcome to LVAdvice

I know a number of the Station Casinos offer UFC viewing parties.  (I didn't know about the ownership connection that StatFreak mentioned, but that makes sense now.)  Do you normally stay on the strip, downtown, off-strip?

Most every casino will have a Super Bowl (aka "Big Game") party.  Again, where do you typically like to stay?

We are staying at The Palms.  ACDC at MGM on Friday, UFC party/viewing on Saturday and Super Bowl party on Sunday.  Would like to get tickets to a fun Super Bowl party and find a nice/upscale place to watch the UFC fights?Huh?

Stations' most upscale property would be GVR, with RR coming in second.

Really?  We've visited Green Valley Ranch a couple of times and I wasn't blown away by it.  We haven't stayed there, but to me Red Rock is a little more desirable.  I'm curious, though, why you'd rank them differently?  Are the rooms nicer at GVR?

I haven't stayed at either property - only visited and eaten. I prefer GVR. I guess it's a personal choice. I've also had two sub-par dining experiences at RR (T-Bones and the buffet) and haven't had any at GVR. YMMV.

LOL, the property I'm preferring these days is Aliante!  Built from the footprint of Red Rock but now that it is an independent.....great food, great games and nothing I have to put up with from Stations.  I guess what I'm saying is that it a Station without actually being a Station.

It is a nice, beautiful property. On my November trip, I couldn't do anything but lose there though. Typically I do OK there. Plus, they have a non-smoking, paper-only bingo hall. That's typically my draw.

I did get some decent offers though ($50 free play, $40 food, 2 room nights) for January-March. Hope they continue into April for my next trip!

I agree. Aliante is a nice place with good vibes, games and food. The holding company was smart and basically left all of Stations' policies intact so you hit the nail on the head. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind being away from center stage Vegas, as it were.
