Tips for New Years Eve?

My wife and I are headed to Las Vegas for this new year's eve. I was wondering if people who have been there during New Years in the past could reflect on their experience.

I was hoping that we could find a place that isn't too crowded with a nice view of the fireworks. In an ideal world I imagine being on the roof of a hotel with a blanket to sit on and a bottle of wine. However I'm guessing this either a) doesn't exist or b) many people have similar ideas and EVERYWHERE ends up being crowded.

I am open to other ideas and suggestions and welcome anyone who is willing to share their experience (bad or good). Hopefully other readers can benefit as well.

A Terrace Suite at Cosmopolitan is my suggestion.

I ended up watching them from the window of my room at Palazzo one year. But unless you have a room with a good view, a local friend of mine suggests the rooftop garage at Goldcoast. You could "tailgate" I guess if you have a car, or if not, I guess you could just cab over and walk up.

I did the bridge bash a couple of years ago at New York New York. You could see the fireworks from the Tropicana, MGM, Planet Hollywood from there and it was not crowded. However I have heard that it is not going to be operating this year due to construction. For what it look like I would avoid standing in the streets you're just packed in there like sardines.
