Fans of the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints, may need to plan a vacation to Miami for the beginning of February. As for those whose favorites didn't make the playoffs, they can head down this week to watch one of their teams players in the first NFL all-star game in the continental U.S. For the first time ever, the Pro Bowl will be played in Miami (not Honolulu), and it takes place the Sunday before Super Bowl XLIV in Land Shark Stadium. Have you spoken with your football fan clients lately?
Don’t Tailgate, Tail-Great
Sure, for the average Sunday game it's gritty goodness in the parking lot as rusty old grills cook grocery store meats as you drop the pass from your friend because you're holding your beer. But this is the Super Bowl and those who wish to indulge and outsource the preparations and transportation elsewhere should take a look at Trump International Beach Resort's "Tail-Great" Super Bowl package is a jet-setting journey that fuses a little luxury with the Big Game.
Within the exclusive enclave of Sunny Isles Beach, two fans can spend three nights in a One Bedroom Oceanview Super-Suite, appointed with team colors, fan merchandise, memorabilia, accessories and game day gear. Amenities at the property include a full-service spa & fitness center, two restaurants, three lounges, tennis, and business center.
A personal chef will prepare all meals for entire length of stay and a traveling personal chef will cater a Super Bowl tailgate party. Transportation to and from the game is provided, as well as VIP transportation to hotel upon arrival and departure, but Trump won't leave you stranded on Friday and Saturday as it lends you a luxury sports car rental during length of stay. For the game, youget two tickets (Section 400) and a parking pass.

Eat Free Around the Corner
Some fans may want to see the game but prefer avoiding the extreme hoopla that surrounds the vent throughout the weekend, and that's okay. Hyatt's location in Fort Lauderdale, the Hyatt Regency Bonaventure Conference Center & Spa, keeps you just minutes from the action yet far enough away to escape the mass of crowds. The extra distance means lower prices on rooms and munchies as the special Hyatt Daily Rate is accompanied by a $100 food and beverage credit— use it to load up on grub to bring to the game.
