Bunkering InIn case you ever wondered, there was a reason why Archie Bunker continually kicked Meathead out of his favorite chair on "All In The Family." Quite simply, a man's home is his castle and his chair is his throne. Las Vegas hotels were designed by brilliant folks who understand the bond between a man and his chair -- which is why the best sports books come complete with a throne away from home. That means leather, padding, cupholders, a little table for writing down bets and an ashtray. Yes, an ashtray! No need to shiver outside while desperately trying to catch the score through the window. It's Vegas, so if your secondhand smoke gets in your neighbor's eyes, then he's in the wrong place, not you. Not even Captain Kirk's swiveling La-Z-Boy on the Starship Enterprise could compete with one of those leather beauties at the Bellagio or Treasure Island facing all those wonderfully oversized screens. Procuring a decent chair is paramount when the goal is to watch college basketball for 12 hours straight. There's limited seating in most sports books, so if you don't get a spot you may be forced to sit on a distant barstool or stand near the slots. The key is to have a member of your party arrive early on game day wearing three or four extra jackets.
