The Madness has just begun! I think we can all agree that a cold drink, some tasty food and a good deal adds even more to the exciting basketball action. Week one of the tourney may be over, but there’s still plenty of time to get in on the fun.
Here are a few of my favorite places at Mall of America® to enjoy the basketball Madness:
Buffalo Wild Wings
A cold drink with wings and a round of appetizers is just the ticket for basketball viewing! I’m definitely going to check out Buffalo Wild Wings‘ Happy Hour specials—running throughout the tournament.
I love saving a little cash with Hooters‘ $10 boneless wings and a pitcher of beer (Budweiser or Bud Light) for $19.99. Catch this deal until April 4!
What more can I say? Waste your day away in Margaritaville, where they will be airing all games during the tournament.
When I’m looking for a more laid back space to enjoy the tournament, I head to Cantina #1. Monday through Thursday during March, Cantina #1’s atmosphere will transport you to paradise with $5 Long Island Teas and $14 melon and spring mango margaritas.
If you’re like me, you might be wishing you were headed to Indianapolis to take in the pressure and intensity of the championship game. The next best thing? Cowboy Jack’s, where you can live on the edge of your seat with $4 Dos Equis during every March Madness game at Cowboy Jack’s.
Cedar + Stone, Urban Table
Ready to place your bets? Cedar + Stone, Urban Table is a sure winner. They’re giving away prizes for the basketball-savvy among us. Picking the winner of certain games could earn you a free appetizer or well drink on your next visit. But here’s what I’m aiming for: picking both the winning team and the final score earns 30 percent off your entire purchase (max bill of $100) on your next visit, so I can order more yummy food like this BLT pizza with an egg on top:
The Madness lives on until the championship showdown on April 3, and I don’t plan on missing the chance to score the perfect deal and spot to watch this year’s tournament at Mall of America.
