Another Story On The Death of Super Bowl Parties In Vegas

Dennis Kelley, a nurse from Pittsburgh, came prepared for Super Bowl Sunday at Caesars Palace.

Kelley had his Ben Roethlisberger jersey. He wore his gold football pants. He even pulled on his throwback Steelers leather helmet.

If you want a good perch to watch the Super Bowl here, you better have a game plan. Kelley's strategy was to get to the Caesars Palace sports and race book, one of Vegas' premier spots to watch the game, early enough to save seats for his fiancee and her aunt.

He arrived at 6 a.m. PST, 9 1/2 hours before kickoff, and just managed to get three stools along a counter that provided decent views of the jumbo TV screens behind the betting windows.

"I got here at 3 a.m. but they cleared the place out to clean it up. When I got back at 6 a.m., the seats with tables were already taken," he said, lifting his head from the pillow on the counter.
