VegasChatter's Guide To March Madness Parties

February 14, 2013 at 3:45 PM | by | ()

The first weekend of the NCAA Basketball Tournament a.k.a. March Madness is the second busiest weekend for sports in Vegas. You can watch the game at most sportsbooks for free, but there's no guarantee that you'll get a seat. Las Vegas is very accommodating to your needs and many hotels, bars and restaurants will have March Madness viewing parties. Below you'll find our ever-growing roundup. We'll add more parties as we find them so be sure to check this thread often as there will be updates.

If you know of any parties, shoot us the information. Know of something that's sold out? Share that with us, too. Another great resource for events/parties is March Madness in Las Vegas on Facebook.

Probablyy a stupid question but

Since you said opening weekend, does the 1700 plus get you a mancave for both days or just 1 day?


I believe that would be pricing for a single day.


I haven't heard or seen anything about what Wynn & Encore are doing this year.  Anyone have any info?  


Sorry, haven't heard of anything and just did an Internet search, too. I did add a few new events, though, just a bit ago.

Hoops on the Mezz

My understanding on PH's Hoops on the Mezz is that it is sold out.
