Where to watch the NCAA games in downtown Chicago
March 31, 2012
I'm in downtown Chicago today and we're looking for a good place to watch the Final Four games this evening. Requirements: good food, reasonable beer selection, and a laid back area where we can grab a table and hang out for a couple hours. Thanks in advance!

Piece Pizza on North Ave in Wicker Park. Amazing (thin) pizza and lots of TVs, but possibly too crowded on a Saturday eve..They also brew their own beer, which has never disappointed.

Piece will definitely be too crowded on a Saturday evening, but there are a few places around that area that would be good because Wicker Park isn't exactly known for sports bars. From the Milwaukee/Ashland/Division intersection, you can go west on Division or Northwest on Milwaukee and find some good spots where you're sure to find a table.
Barring that, you could try north of Wrigleyville--off the Lawrence Red Line stop, for example, although those are the places known for sports bars. Good luck!

Thanks all. We ended up around the corner from our hotel at a little place called Sweetwater, which got the job done. They even dubbed over the commercials with youtube clips, which was pretty cool.
