Walk into Lagasse’s Stadium during an NFL game and you’ll be surrounded by live action on more than 100 HD screens, including the main display that measures 16 by 9 feet, to be viewed from tiered seating and plush couches. And you’ll watch it while munching on Emeril Lagasse’s food such as Emeril’s New Orleans BBQ Shrimp, shrimp and andouille sausage gumbo, truffle Parmesan french fries with foie gras-black truffle aioli, shrimp and chicken jambalaya pasta and New Orleans Bread & Butter Pudding.

If it’s football, you can watch it live on the dozens of screens at Beer Park, the open-air spot atop Paris Las Vegas — although you may be distracted by a view of the Strip that includes the Fountains of Bellagio. The more than 100 beers include 36 on tap, and the menu features such dishes as Gilroy Garlic Fries, a smoked meatloaf sandwich, burgers, the bacon-wrapped Mexican Style Dog or smoked prime rib, pork ribs and chicken. Plus, there are outdoor games if the NFL action slows down.

That PKWY Tavern has three locations across the valley means there’s one close to nearly everyone, and their more than 80 TV screens inside and out mean the football action is close as well. With more than 250 beers and a beer-loyalty club, the suds are very much in focus, but so is the food, with a menu of such items as jalapeno popper egg rolls, mashed-potato bites, seven flavors of bacon, burgers and sandwiches. There’s even a scorpion-pepper wing challenge, which sounds like it requires a lot of beer.
