Friday at the NCAA Tournament
I'm going to be writing from the United Center over at Rush the Court this weekend, so be sure to stop over there. If Friday is anything like Thursday you'll definitely want to be around the television.
To that end, if you want to get away downtown the Geek Squad is hosting an event from 2-5 p.m. at Sedgwick's Bar & Grill
which is at 1935 N. Sedgewick in Lincoln Park. The big selling point to me though would be the free high-speed internet. They even came up with a clever excuse note
. (But like I said, high-speed internet!)
Also, the bar happens to be the home of Illinois, Duke and Villanova fan clubs. All of those teams conveniently play tomorrow, including Villanova vs. George Mason at 1:10 p.m. and Duke right in the middle of the window starting at 2 p.m.
Also, I spent my lunch on Thursday at Buffalo Wild Wings in Evanston. It's okay to take a slightly longer break if the games get good. I would've been real upset if I had missed Matt Howard's
tip-in on the walk back to the office.
Speaking of internet, hopefully it stays strong at the United Center. Wish the media luck!
