Game On

March Madness, Baby!

March is upon us. The birds are singing, the weather's nice, and your favorite team is *surely* on the verge of the greatest Cinderella run in the history of collegiate sports. As long as they're not a 5 seed.

Now that tournament time is here, you'd better double-check that all systems are go. First of all, make sure your online bracket has a "boss button." After all, nothing messes up a perfectly good March like an old-fashioned flogging. Second, make sure you didn't choose your pool teams based on loyalty -- no matter how proud you are that your alma mater is dancing. And third, make sure you've got a go-to place for game watching, a place that serves beer. Here are a few of our favorite restaurants and bars to help you cheer your teams to victory, imploding brackets not included.
