Where to go for March Madness?

Happy March Madness - and in honor of the launch of the NCAA tournament, here’s a follow-up on my earlier suggestions of good places to go watch the basketball games:

--Cherie, whose husband is a diehard Memphis fan, wrote to ask where the couple should go. Memphis has a Charlotte alumni group that meets sporadically at the uptown Fox & Hound (330 N. Tryon St., 704-333-4113).

--Bill wrote to tell me that Syracuse fans like to go to the Picasso’s Sports Cafe in University City, 1001 E. W.T. Harris Blvd., 704-595-9553. "Great large screen, and lots of Syracuse faithful," he wrote.

--Illinois fans should go to Jocks and Jills, 4109 Southstream Blvd, 704-423-0001, since local alumni plan to gather there.

--Tukuli, a University of Tennessee alum, wondered where to find UT fans. According to their alumni Web site, they like to gather at Hickory Tavern, 9010 Harris Corners Parkway, exit 18 off Interstate 77, 704-921-4466.

If you know of other spots around the region that attract specific schools’ fans, please post them here.

It's always a good time at the Beatties Ford McDonalds.
See you there.
