March 2018

We can't all be hoop superstars, but we can enjoy watching March Madness and other sporting events from the comfort of the best bars and restaurants the 918 has to offer. Sure, there's nothing quite like the electricity and fever of watching a big game in person, surrounded by thousands of rabid fans. But an awesome bar, pub or restaurant can come mighty close, and some might say, reaches its own level of bliss as a gathering place that offers a unique version of the sporting experience. It's where you can collectively experience the triumphs, the heartaches, and the last-minute surprises of any game while either celebrating or sulking with great drinks and food.
