The North Carolina men’s basketball team received a No. 1 seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. Here’s what you need to know about watching any potential tournament matchups in popular bars and restaurants on Franklin Street.
Watching UNC games at restaurants and bars on Franklin Street is a timeless tradition for Tar Heel basketball fans. But, each establishment offers a different and unique experience for watching tournament games.
If you’re looking for an experience that’s all about the game, General Manager Claire Perry said Sup Dogs is the place for you. For the duration of the tournament, Perry said Sup Dogs will try to have an interactive environment that is focused on basketball.
“During the NCAA (tournament), we try to run specials and create an environment that really feeds off of the basketball,” Perry said.
Perry said they’ll have beer specials running through March Madness, and they’ll serve drinks in reusable UNC-Sup Dogs cups that customers can take home with them.
She said they are planning to have brackets available for Sup Dogs customers to fill out and are working on displaying a large white board bracket to track the tournament.
The Pizza Press
The Pizza Press is one of the newer restaurants on Franklin Street, but General Manager Andreas Handrinos said their recent watch parties have been packed with customers. If you like pizza and beer, Pizza Press might offer a viewing experience fit for you.
