The Madness is at Morton’s!
There’s lots of excitement with this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament as they march toward the Final Four. We now know the Sweet Sixteen teams as of yesterday’s action and there were some unbelievably exciting finishes…including Morehead State’s buzzer beater that broke the hearts of Louisville Cardinals fans all over the country (and certainly throughout Kentucky!). That game was topped by the biggest upset of the tournament so far, with Butler shocking the number one seed Pitt Panthers in crazy and dramatic fashion.
Morton’s is a big fan of the tournament off the court, too. Last week on St. Patrick’s Day, we saw the University of Georgia team dine at our Morton’s restaurant in Charlotte. The team was extremely gracious, and we enjoyed meeting the young men who were excited about their appearance in the Big Dance. Even though they lost their first-round game to the Washington Huskies, it was nice season for the Bulldogs in the SEC, winning 21 games this season.
Then on Friday night we had the coaching staff and players from University of Connecticut at our Morton’s restaurant in Arlington, VA. The Huskies of UConn proceeded to beat Cincinnati and advance to the Sweet Sixteen, when they’ll play against San Diego State.
On Saturday night we had Father Wild of Marquette University grace our Morton’s location in downtown Cleveland, and it was by divine right that Marquette defeated Syracuse to advance to the next round.
There’s much more drama to come this weekend, and Morton’s The Steakhouse will be there for all of it…showing the games in the bar, welcoming fans in our private dining rooms with large screens, and hosting the NCAA teams who come in for a well-deserved steak dinner. You may even hear a radio spot for Morton’s that is running in all NCAA Tournament games. Enjoy the rest of the action this week, and we’ll be back next week with some more thoughts about all the madness!
If you’d like more information about booking a private dining room with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment to watch your team in the tournament, please contact the Sales and Marketing Manager at your preferred Morton’s location.
