Miami Heat Game 6: Top Five Places to Watch the Team on an Expense Account
Here's the dilemma: if you stay home and watch Dirk Nowitzki in Sunday's Game 6, you'll swear at the TV set and probably break something. And your boss stuck you with the job of entertaining the new clients. You can't take them to the local sports bar, but you can take them to one of these places, where fine dining and the NBA Finals mix. So grab the company credit card and prepare to enjoy the game and a great meal on the boss!
