After all, it’s not every year that March Madness takes over the city. Whether you’re hosting a watch party at home with a spread of classic game day snacks, or venturing out into downtown to get a taste of the action, consider this list of where to eat, drink, and play as the countdown to the Final Four in Houston begins.
