It’s that time of year where millions of brackets are busted and work productivity takes a nosedive. That’s right: March Madness is about to commence! If you live in the Fort Myers area, grab a chair, fixate on the TVs, and take long lunches at any of these local sports bars.

If you’re near Downtown Fort Myers, head to The Lodge, one of the area’s newest original pubs. The Lodge features the area’s biggest LED TV, among many others for you to get your b-ball fix. Take in all the half-court heaves from the comfort of the Lodge’s log cabin-like atmosphere.
For a great mix of basketball and food in Naples, take a seat at Pelican Larry’s Raw Bar & Grille. This pub will be casting all the action on its dozens of televisions, so you won’t have to crane your neck to bask in the glory that is March Madness. Share a few orders of shucked oysters with your coworkers, and enjoy an extended lunch.
Kick back at Cape Coral’s own Duffy’s Sports Grill, where Happy Hour is an all-day event, and nibble on some BBQ ribs or wings as the on-court drama explodes across their many screens.
At Bokampers Sports Bar and Grille in Estero, FL, you can not only watch March Madness but also enter their Perfect Bracket Challenge for a chance to win prizes and up to $1,000,000. That’s some serious dough.
If you’re far too busy to take a break and watch the games at a Fort Myers-area restaurant, you can stream the games online. Just visit the official March Madness Live site hosted at NCAA.com to get your fix. Living in the modern era certainly has its perks.
Road Trip to Orlando for First & Second Rounds
Living in Florida has its perks, too! For all you NCAA basketball fans, you can switch off the TV and take a short trip up to Orlando to watch the madness in real time. First- and second-round play (March 16th and 18th) will be held at the Amway Center in Orlando this year, so go and catch all the buzzer beaters and ditch the pesky commercials.
