Where to Watch March Madness 2021 in Lake County

By: Jonathan Jones 03/16/2021

Third-month mania is upon us, and you might be searching for a place for the squad to watch March Madness 2021 in Lake County.

Everyone is also is ready to see some dramatic collegiate hoops. Watch your upset special and gain bragging rights at one of these fine establishments. We're also excited because since COVID-19 struck around this time last year, we were cheated out of our college bball. We're also rewarded with two teams from the Land of Lincoln: #1 seed University of Illinois Fighting Illini and #8 seed Loyola University Ramblers. We could even see a faceoff in the second round of 32!
