Top Tahoe South Sports Bars for March Madness
When it comes to celebrating early spring at Tahoe South, Mother Nature usually (cross your fingers, dust off your snow dance) brings us a series of winter storms locals refer to as "Miracle March." These storms have been known to drop several feet of snow, making Lake Tahoe's spring skiing the best in the West.
The timing of these storms usually happen, ironically, during another miracle time of the year, NCAA Basketball March Madness. You can ski all day in March, taking in the best snow conditions anywhere, and afterwards head to the top sports bars where locals go to watch basketball playoff action.
My recommended spots are:
Burgers, beer and basketball -- what more could one ask for? Grab a seat at the 42-foot long bar that is equipped with gaming machines and watch your favorite teams on several flat screen TVs. If you're feeling lucky, the Lucky Beaver has a sports betting kiosk so you'll never lose a seat.
Choose from options like Smokey Pulled Pork, Grilled Chicken, Carne Asada, Sliced Brisket and “Burnt Ends” in the comfortable, open dining/bar room. Check out bar specials - and the games on both HD TV's - all month long.
Known as the “the Locals“ Sports Bar with 20 large HDTVs, a 72-inch HDTV and more than $20,000 worth of sports memorabilia on the walls, this is a March Madness paradise. There's even a special Dish® televised sports package which will cover all the games. Straw Hat has at least 25 beers to choose from, huge pizza & wing selections and a 32-item salad bar.
A South Shore gathering spot where locals and visitors can "unwind, connect and refuel," featuring handcrafted beer and California comfort food.
A casual, friendly environment for food, drink and entertainment. Casey's offers American traditional food featuring burgers and shakes, pizzas, a full bar, salads and Mexican specialties.
Wherever you watch the madness, March is sure to be an exciting time to visit South Lake Tahoe!
