Cool spots to watch March Madness!

Beer. Grub. HD TVs. Let's Go!
What's up craft brew sippers and sports nuts?!
This is arguably the best time of the year for sports, and I asked around to see who is doing something cool to embrace the March Madness. So besides some of my favorite bars with awesome beer selections, grub and HD televisions like Taco Mac's Prado and Metropolis locations, Midway Pub, STATS, Cypress Street Pint & Plate, Ormsby's, and my new fave, Red Pepper Taquiera (their food is AWESOME!), here are few more who are willing to make you and your brackets feel right at home all the way up to the climax right here in ATL's Georgia Dome! Good luck with your picks! 
Happy sippin'!

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
