A great spot for watching the game is the all-new Ice Level Lounge near the glass; all you need is to be 21 years of age or older and have a lower level ticket
The birds belong to Joe Krathwohl, aka "Joe the Birdman," who has been featured on America's Got Talent, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Late Show with David Letterman; his Las Vegas Ranch and bird sanctuary is home to around 1,000 birds including breeding Andean Condors to be released back into the wild.
