Bars & Nightlife Deal Food, Restaurants & Dining Music & Events Sports Spotlight Fara Illich March 15, 2012

March MadnessThe brackets are filled out, the betting has begun and half of the office is refusing to move from their desks – and no, they aren’t working.
Maybe you’re thinking about leaving work early to catch one of those 3,000* March Madness games. Maybe you’re barely working anyway.
Whatever your productivity levels, skip the commute home and relocate yourself to a sports bar where no one will complain about your all-basketball-all-the-time needs. Here’s our shortlist of where to catch a game:
Coach & Willie’s
It seems like there’s a TV every 12 feet* in this hopping joint. The beer is cold, the games are blasting and the food is delicious.
Majerle’s Sports Grill
The sports bar of sports bars. If you haven’t watched a game here, you’re missing out.
Tom’s Tavern
Maybe you want to watch the games outside where your deafening yells of joy and disappointment can be heard for blocks. Or maybe you just want to get in on the $5 appetizers during Happy Hour.
Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge

There isn’t just bowling at this swanky little place. There’s also 12 big TVs and – in honor of the Madness – $2 domestics.
Networks Bar and Grill
The food here is fan friendly and the happy hour specials rock. You can even bust out your chopsticks skills over sushi, just don’t stab your neighbor when your team loses.
Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill
Escape the crowds and get in on one of the better kept secrets around town. This place is open on non-game days and it comes with a seriously fun view.
Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery
Floor-to-ceiling TV. Need I say more?
The TVs turn on at 9 am and all the games are on. Grab a giant beer and skip the office.
