March Madness Final Four! Opening Day! Cricket World Cup! Like it or not, sporting events are everywhere you turn this weekend. So do it right, and head to your favorite local sports bar to catch a game. My pick is Touchdown at 1334 U Street NW, a relative newcomer that’s already made a splash through their unique take on the classic sports bar concept, complete with local art and international flair. You can read my review of their soft opening party here.

In and around your March Madness schedule (if you  still care), it’s worth it to wake up early on Saturday morning to head over to Touchdown for their Cricket World Cup viewing party as Sri Lanka and India face off in the final. Touchdown’s doors open at 6 am on Saturday in time for the game, and they’ll be offering a special breakfast menu until midnight. Alcoholic beverage service begins at 8 am and don’t worry, you are definitely allowed to disco nap after this one.
