Welcome March Madness Traditions This Year at Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar
It happens every year. As the days of March get checked off the calendar, a special kind of anticipation starts growing. March Madness is just around the corner and so is all the excitement and team spirit that comes with it.
Each year, collegiate sports fan gear up and get ready to fill out their brackets with the 68 teams that will compete in one of the most important collegiate tournaments of the year. From the day of selection until the championship game, March Madness is one of the best times of the year for sports fans across the nation.
No matter how you look at it, there’s something special about March Madness. Let’s take a closer look at this beloved American tradition and how you can make this year’s celebrations the best yet.
March Madness – a True American Tradition
March Madness is a tradition that’s unique to the United States. Nowhere else in the world will you find such a tremendous build up over collegiate sports. An onlooker might say that we have an obsession with college basketball. We’re not inclined to disagree – in fact, we think our “obsession” is a great thing.
The flurry of energy that surrounds March Madness isn’t anything new. March Madness was actually born in the early 1900s, except the focus was on high school basketball rather than collegiate teams. Still, so much anticipation built up around the tournament each year that it didn’t take long for the “Madness” to catch on.
Eventually the term “March Madness” spread to collegiate basketball tournaments as well but the early days of basketball fever looked nothing like it does today. During the first NCAA men’s basketball tournament in 1939, only 8 teams competed – a number that pales in comparison to the 68 spaces that make up round one of today’s brackets.
Celebrating in March Madness Style
In being completely honest, it isn’t just basketball that defines March Madness. A major part of the tradition is wrapped up in how we celebrate it. A basketball game during March Madness isn’t one of those occasions where you casually sit at home and catch the game. No, there’s a certain way to celebrate March Madness.
Of course, a big part of the tradition is filling out your bracket and maybe even making a few bets among friends. Someone always ends up buying the table a round after their bracket pick gets knocked out of the competition. At the heart of every memorable March Madness celebration are good times spent with great friends.
Where these celebrations happen is important. Of course, you’d be hard pressed to find an empty sports bar during a tournament game, but is that really the scene that you’re after? You could stay home and throw a March Madness party of your own, except that’s a ton of hassle and you don’t have multiple screens to catch every game making shot.
You’re past the time in your life when standing in line at a crowded bar with sticky floors is your idea of a good time. You’re looking for an experience that’s more sophisticated but doesn’t leave you feeling short changed in terms of high energy and atmosphere. You want amazing food, great drinks and a place to enjoy the tournament games in style.
