March Madness inspires fanatical devotion – and so does bacon, so we thought, ‘Why not combine them?’” says Chef Dan Bethard, Assistant Director of Culinary Operations.  “With Bacon Madness, our guests get the best of both worlds: a fun atmosphere to watch all the college basketball action, while enjoying all the delicious smoky bacon goodness they can eat, with our house-brewed beers as the ultimate bonus to wash it all down.”
