March Madness is finally here! Now that football is over, basketball is key to my sports happiness! Watching the game from home can be fun, but there are many places around Lafayette-West Lafayette to catch the big game. Jake’s Roadhouse is one of my favorite sports bars on campus, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. All ages are welcome at Jake’s until 9pm. Another favorite place on the west side is The Pint. The Pint offers an ever-changing selection of crafts beers and TVs line the bar (21 and over). [caption id="attachment_8935" align="alignleft" ] Sgt. Preston's[/caption] Downtown you could bar hop for each game since there are so many great places to choose from! Sgt. Preston’s is always alive with game watchers and a ski-shot is available to get the fun rolling. The Vault has pool tables and high top tables that are perfect to watch a game with a group of friends. Chumley’s has the best nachos to snack on during the game along with 50 beers on tap and plenty of local brews to try. DT Kirby’s has all the qualities of a great sports bar- big portions, greasy food and always an upbeat crowd with plenty of screens. Professor Joe’s Sports Pub and Pizzeria- the name says it all! Specialty pizza, The Boilermaker, is the perfect pie to cheer on your Purdue Boilermakers. Get your wing fix at Bobby T's Pub. Finally, one of the best places to fill your Mexican cravings during the game is at the 6th Street Dive where their chicken enchiladas are fabulous!
