Ball Night
March Madness, by the Clock

We see you working. Harder than usual, even. Because come Thursday, your productivity is going to, well, plummet. And because your office’s Q1 performance is really none of our concern, we thought we’d help you out with this hour-by-hour road map to enjoying a full day of hoops.

UD - Gratis Gumbo at Bayou on Penn

12:15PM, COLORADO ST VS. MURRAY ST

Gratis Gumbo at Bayou on Penn

Just in case you can’t get down to New Orleans for the Final Four, Bayou is dishing out bowls of gumbo anytime you order up an Abita beer (which shouldn’t be a problem). Given the weather report, you’ll want to hang on the patio, where they’re setting up TVs. It’s like Mardi Gras and Madness in one.
411:
11am-3pm, Bayou on Penn, 2519 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 202-233-6941
UD - At Curtis Draper, You’re Red Auerbach

2:10PM, MONTANA VS. WISCONSIN

At Curtis Draper, You’re Red Auerbach

So confident are you that you’ll hit your two-team parlay in the afternoon, we wouldn’t put it past you to light up your victory cigar during the games. Here to help: this downtown tobacco den, providing you with all the leather club chairs and rare Hondurans you need to go along with Jim Nantz.
411:
W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist, 699 15th St NW, 202-638-2555
UD - Pitchers and Pies at Mellow Mushroom

4:40PM, VANDERBILT VS. HARVARD

Pitchers and Pies at Mellow Mushroom

This one’s a cerebral matchup, so time to feed your head with $10 pitchers of Shiner Bock and $12 one-topping pizzas at the Mushroom’s TV-laden upstairs bar. If you’re really feeling witty, they’re extending the normal happy hour specials on drinks, beer and cheese bread to seven hours.
411:
Happy hour specials noon-7pm, Mellow Mushroom, 2436 18th St NW, 202-290-2778
UD - Bar Games and Microbrews at Iron Horse

7:15PM, VCU VS. WICHITA STATE

Bar Games and Microbrews at Iron Horse

By now, your competitive juices should be flowing. Enter Iron Horse, with its plethora of shufflepuck, skee-ball and arcade games. Oh, but let’s not forget the 20 draft lines with some limited-edition craft brews. Knock two bucks off until 8pm. Otherwise known as halftime.
411:
Happy hour 4-8pm, Iron Horse Taproom, 507 7th St NW, 202-347-7665
UD - Pitchers and a Projector at Mason Inn

9:57PM, COLORADO VS. UNLV

Pitchers and a Projector at Mason Inn

Glover Park’s Southern-fried sports bar is opening early, with $9 pitchers and $5 car bombs all day while you catch the games on their projection TV and flat-screens. And if you’d rather hear less of Greg Gumbel, local Southern rockers the Morrison Brothers Band will be taking the stage after the final horn.
411:
Opens at noon, Mason Inn, 2408 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-337-1313
