Big tv & luxury dining?

Thanks for those suggestions! It's Celtics/Lakers on Tuesday. They're staying at THEhotel at Mandalay and Charlie Palmer's was the concierge's recommendation... but when I googled, I didn't find any talk about a tv so I was leery... but it sounds like that may be a good spot for them. I did see a recommendation on here for Circo and that's definitely on my list. Thanks again, much appreciated.

Big tv & luxury dining?

I'm looking for a place where my boss and his colleague can watch an NBA playoff game and have dinner. Is there perhaps an upscale sports bar, or a fine dining restaurant with a big screen tv? Something that would be suitable for business travelers, and not too far from Mandalay Bay?

Local Burger and Fries - Northampton

For whatever it's worth, when I saw "Local" in their name, it never occurred to me that the food would be local; I thought of the way people call their favorite neighborhood pub "the local" and figured the owners intended for this to be a favorite neighborhood burger joint referred to with the same familiar affection. I think "deceptive" seems a bit harsh and unfair?

Nice waterfront dinner in Virginia Beach area?

Our family travels to Virginia Beach every August, and we like to go out for a nice group dinner one night. For the last two years, we've been going to the Blue Crab (I think it's actually in Norfolk?). The atmosphere is great, it's right on the water, but the food has only been mediocre. We need a new spot for our group of 10-20 (it varies year-to-year)...some kids, some seafood-aholics, some who won't eat seafood, some hardcore foodies, some more mainstream. Any suggestions?
