March Madness is upon us and office workers around the country are ready to start filling out their brackets. ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi has both UTEP and Memphis in the big dance in his latest bracket predictions. Lundardi thinks the Tigers will be a 12 seed playing their first and second round games in Spokane, Washington.It would be nice for the Tigers to get sent to a closer site like New Orleans, but just getting into the tournament is a big win for Memphis this season.
The Grizzlies kept their playoff hopes alive after edging out a win over the worst team in the NBA last night. Now 33-31, they are currently on the outside looking in with the 9th best record in the NBA's Western Conference and are 4.5 games behind 8th seeded Portland. The Grizzlies have a tough game tomorrow night at Boston before returning home for Friday night's game against the New York Knicks. You can get special ticket prices for Friday night at Ticketmaster by using the promo code SMSTEAL.
Facebook group Memphis Happy Hours will be hosting their first monthly Mega Happy Hour on Thursday at Senses at 7pm. Future locations will be determined by recommendations of the group and the participating bar's willingness to provide specials for the Happy Hour. Senses wouldn't be on the top of many lists, but it is hard to pass up $2 imports and $5 martinis. One quick recommendation...how about having a more traditional happy hour start time (5:30pm) for future events.
