Being that I am in South OC, it would just depend on the timing (i.e. weekend game), but I would consider it. Its about a two hour drive in weekday traffic, but not too bad on the weekend.
I will say though, that for me, I get a bit crazy and really charged during the playoffs. I literally stand like two to four feet from the TV (which is an HD 50" size) pacing the floor, jumping up and down and really focused on the game. I am telling you, I am psycho (lol). So, I am concerned that I might get distracted if we are at a sports bar and people are chatting and stuff and I might get distracted from the game.
Perhaps I can take a Xanax or something before I hook up with you guys! LOL (JUST KIDDING)
p.s. Vegas sounds fun too! Watching at a sports book takes on a different environment completely!
