The NCAA championship game is tonight. Louisville Cardinals fans will make their way to Crystal City Sports Pub, where the local alumni group has seats reserved on the third floor. Michigan Wolverines will be in their usual haunts – Buffalo Billiards and Ventnor Sports Cafe – as well as Kangaroo Boxing Club and other alumni-owned bars.
But for the neutral fan who wants to take advantage of this glorious weather, head for one of these patios or rooftop bars where the game will be showing on outdoor TVs.
Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill
While the rooftop deck doesn't have as many TVs as the downstairs dining room, it's still a good place to enjoy the game with a cold beer.
H Street's largest outdoor space has multiple flat-screen and projection TVs over two levels.
Cleveland Park Bar and Grill
The rooftop deck has a small bar and multiple TVs. Get there early for good seats.
Jack Rose Dining Saloon
The Adams Morgan whiskey bar is throwing a pregame party on its rooftop deck with free food and $5 beers and glasses of punch from 6 to 10 p.m.
Penn Quarter Sports Tavern
A destination for college sports fans, the bar has arranged several large flat-screens so that they're visible from the sidewalk patio.
Known for its cheap drink specials, the Capitol Hill hangout has two projection screens on its covered sidewalk patio. Monday night deals include $4 craft vodka cocktails, $5 glasses of wine and $5 Devils Backbone drafts.
Whitlow's on Wilson
The island-themed tiki bar will have the game on all five of its 46-inch flat-screens, with sound and happy hour specials.
