Rough Draught

Best bars to catch - or avoid - March Madness

Who Gives a Shit

If you’re trying to avoid anything and everything about the tournament, spend some time in Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall (1016 N. Mills Ave.). It’s small and cramped, the single TV is pretty much there for Lou, and chances are there’ll be an ear-melting band drowning out the sounds of the outside world. For more basketball embargo with your beer, try the Milk Bar (2424 E. Robinson St.; themilkbarorlando.com), where it’s practically law that the TVs must be showing something other than sports (like Futurama or pictures of LOLcats). The beer selection is kick-ass and you can play any of the dozens of board games (the ultimate in nerdy sports rejection!). If all that fails, come on over to my house, where there’s zero sports and a full kegerator.

The Bar Tab

Speaking of places where you can catch a game (if your game is soccer), Cricketers Arms (7563 Sand Lake Road; cricketersarmspub.com) has recently reopened after relocating to a new spot in Dr. Phillips. The new digs have an expanded tap selection, including four hand-drawn ales, and they’ve still got a spiffy viewing section for European sports channels so you can keep tabs on all those clubs you love, like … Manchester … and … Manchester.
