As we await the transition to Spring in New York City, the 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament will help to take our minds off the miserable weather. Hunkering down in front of the TV at a great sports bar to root for your college team or just to witness the major upsets is our reward to riding out a long winter. Although Kentucky is the odds on favorite to win the championship, the rest of the brackets are wide open and any of us old enough to recall Villanova against Georgetown realize anything is possible. NYC will have several go-to locations where the tourney will be part religion and part celebration.
