Kick Off March Madness
DO/SEE March MadnessHit Up a Sports Bar for March Madness

Create a bracket, take bets with your friends and head to a bar to cheer on your chosen basketball teams. We’ve done some digging to find the coolest sports bars to kick off the madness. Here are a couple of our favorites:

STATS Restaurant and Bar - AtlantaSTATS Restaurant and Bar – Atlanta

With 70 high def TVs and pour-your-own beer available, this sports bar on steroids has separate viewing areas for each game, so there’s no need to head into enemy territory.

Auto Battery Sports Bar - SeattleAuto Battery Sports Bar – Seattle

Housed in a former auto shop, this casual-atmosphere bar draws heavily on its former resident for ambiance, decor and even cocktail names. For a little half-time fun, try your hand at shuffleboard, a game of pool, or Skee-Ball.


Sexy, cozy and a hint of sporty. Rock this mesh-inset pullover with leather-look leggings and studded hat to hang with the boys (but definitely look like one of the girls).

Black and Tan

Step 1:
Pour a pale ale, like Harp Lager, into a pint glass, filling the glass halfway.
Step 2:
Float the Guinness on top to fill the glass by slowly pouring it over the back of a teaspoon.
Step 3:
Remove the spoon; two distinct layers will appear in the glass. Enjoy!

Style Spotlight: The Rhinestud Sweater


Everyone needs a go-to sweater for fall; one that can be dressed up or down at a moment’s notice but still has a little edge. That’s why we love this rhinestud sweater with a flattering fit and irresistible sparkle.

Headed downtown this weekend? Amp it up with lace-up pumps, super-hot (minus the) leather shorts and a stacked ring. Or if you’re looking for something casual for your lunch date, pair it up with a studded hobo bag, camo flats, a denim jacket and slouchy-sexy boyfriend jeans.
