Throwing the ultimate March Madness party requires planning, plenty of your favorite tailgating dishes, and a cozy viewing area with as many TV screens as there are games. So fill out your bracket, grab an ice-cold brew, and get ready to have the best March Madness ever!

Set a Specific Party Date and Time

March Madness extends from March 14 to April 3 this year and runs (nearly) every day at the beginning of the tournament. You don’t want to be hosting your friends for days and days, so pick a specific party date and time. There’s no right or wrong time to throw a March Madness viewing party, as long as basketball is on TV.

Put Together the Perfect Guest List

iStock

For your March Madness soirée, be sure to invite people who are the same level of basketball fanatic as you. You don’t want to be schooled on statistics and back-stories all night, but you don’t want to be teaching someone the rules all evening either.

Send Out Party Invitations

We recommend you keep things simple with your party invitations and send out a simple event invite via Facebook or email. If you want to really take your party to the next level, send out paper invitations complete with basketball decorations and paper versions of a March Madness bracket for your guests to fill out.

Start a Bracket Pool

You can’t even begin to think of a March Madness party without a bracket competition. Either by going online or printing off ballots, wager a friendly bet between your friends to see who can correctly guess the outcomes of the most games. Whoever wins at the end of the tournament gets bragging rights (and maybe some cash).

Create a Baller Playlist

iStock

Curate a playlist of your favorite pump-up jams or basketball-themed songs for the spare moments between games (or when the commentary just gets to be too much). May we recommend some of our favorite cheesy basketball songs — such as the Space Jam theme by Quad City DJ’s, Aaron Carter’s “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” or Jamie Foxx’s “Winner.”

Decorate

iStock

We’re not saying that you need to brand all of your bread with your favorite team logo, but decorations can help to take any party from OK to spectacular. You can either theme your party around your favorite college b-ball team or alma mater with its colors and mascot or go with a generic NCAA basketball theme with orange and black décor.

Have Multiple Screens

iStock

The entire point of a March Madness viewing party is to watch a ton of basketball, so be sure to have several screens running at once. If your TV has the capability, use the screen-within-a-screen feature. If not, set up a few laptops with games streaming online so your home can feel just like a sports bar.

Record Some Games

iStock

During the peak madness of the NCAA tournament, there can be up to four games on TV at once, and you’re not going to be able to catch each and every one of them live. If you’re dedicated to watching every matchup, don’t forget to set your DVR for a few games to watch during lags in the action later at your party.

Make Your Viewing Area Extra Comfy

iStock

Make your living room the coziest place on the block so your friends can enjoy the game in total comfort. Pull in extra chairs from other rooms in your home, pile on the blankets and throw pillows, and point everything toward the TV.

Dress Up

iStock

Dressing on theme is a fun and simple way to get really into your party, so don’t be afraid to do it. Wear your college sports apparel, be it from your favorite participating team or your alma mater. If you really want to get into theme dressing, throw on a referee’s jersey and whistle and call out any party fouls you see.

Stock a Cooler Full of Beer

iStock

Watching any sports game pretty much requires an ice-cold beer. Stock your cooler with some classic American favorites (Bud Light, Coors Light, etc.) and keep the cooler out of your fridge and away from the rest of the buffet. You want your friends to grab a brew whenever they see fit.

Serve Sporty Cocktails

Sports drinks and energy drinks may not be the healthiest beverages in the world, but for the sake of March Madness, use these as mixers. While we don’t recommend drinking a lot of these cocktails, they can be fun in moderation.

Don’t Forget Non-Alcoholic Drinks

Make Hearty, Tailgate-Style Appetizers

Break Out the Grill

iStock

Serve Concession Stand Sides

Make your home into a concession stand by cooking up some classic standbys — but don’t charge your friends. Serve up some boiled peanuts, soft pretzels, and of course French fries to recall good times spent at the stadium.

Make a Cheese Ball

iStock

You need a few spherical menu items to tap into your basketball-themed March Madness party, and what better way to honor b-ball than with a bright orange cheese ball? Blue, Cheddar, and Neufchâtel cheeses combine to make this appetizer cheese ball our favorite.

Pop Some Popcorn

Set Up a Big Buffet

iStock

Keep all of your food situated in one central area for your viewing party. Take all of your concession stand snacks, grilled items, appetizers, and desserts and line them up at a long buffet table. Don’t forget the paper plates and silverware!

Have a Game Room

Having a separate area for kids to burn off energy — or for uninterested party guests to gather so they don’t interrupt the big game — can really make or break your party. Set up a few board games and a few indoor basketball hoops.

Host Your Own March Madness Competition

If you happen to have a basketball hoop in your yard, play a few rounds of HORSE or one-on-one to burn off excess energy (and all that indulgent food). You can even create a mini-bracket with your friends and crown your own ultimate basketball champion.

Hold Basketball Trivia

If the basketball games aren’t enough competition for you, host your own version of bar trivia with NCAA-related questions. Asking something like “Who is the all-time leading NCAA Division I scorer?” is sure to separate the real basketball fans from the fakers.

Place a Basketball Hoop Over Your Trash Can

Want to make clean up really fun and easy? Have your guests do it themselves by placing a small basketball hoop over your trash can. Having your friends pick up their own soda cans will now be almost a game. Just don’t let them know it was your master plan all along.

Take Turns With Friends

iStock

Because March Madness lasts for the better part of a month, you can’t be expected to host every single game night. Have your friends host a night or two of the NCAA tournament and be sure to be as good of a guest as you are a host.


8 ultimate man cave ideas to transform any space into an official March Madness headquarters

So, you’ve decided to host this year’s March Madness party. Your wife gave you a strict warning about greasy chicken wing stains on her living room carpet. The only viable alternative? Turn your basement or bonus room into the ultimate man cave. You’re on a tight time frame and a strict budget but, if you don’t get it all done in time for this year’s games, you’ll have a great head start for next year.

Inviting spaces + quirky furnishings = serious man cave

The true man cave is a statement of your own personality and style. It’s the one room in the home, other than maybe the dog house occasionally! – that a guy can call his own. From furniture to appliances, this space is a reflection of the man who calls it his home inside his home.

When it comes to design and layout, the ultimate man cave is serious business. You build your man’s reputation with the creation of spaces and unique features that entertain, amuse and energize.

Here are 8 tips to help you get it done!

And now, without further ado — let’s get on with the list

  1. Choosing the right theme. Sports bar? Mountain or outdoor? Card/pool parlor? Beach club? Race track? The ultimate man cave features a prominent theme that guides the look and feel of appliances and furniture. The theme reflects the hobbies and interests of the host.
  2. TV/viewing arrangement. The TV is the very heart of the ultimate man cave. Select a respectable flat screen (may we suggest that bigger is definitely better?) and then create an optimal viewing arrangement of couches, and recliners in a semi-circular or theater-type configuration. If you can score some vintage seats from a local arena refurb or demolition, all the better.
  3. Video gaming stations. During the course of the March Madness evening, a video game tourney will most likely break out. Set your auxiliary TV in an area away from — but close to — the main viewing area. Keep the gamers out of the line of site (“Hey, sit down!”), but still part of the action.
  4. Bar / beverage area. The service area holds infinite opportunity for personalization. Mini-bars come in wood, steel, or concrete designs — and are always stocked with an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and the necessary “accoutrements” (you know, “accoutrements” – a fancy French word for pizza, wings, tacos, etc.).
  5. Table gaming stations. Bragging rights during breaks in the March Madness tournament are vigorously exchanged. Set aside an area for various gaming tables — billiards, cards, air hockey, etc. You can also throw down an interior golf putting green for the golf fanatics in your crowd.
  6. Unique appliances for refreshments. Think specialty refrigerators for that keg in your life. And, a retro microwave is perfect for reheating cold pizza leftover from the day before. Not that leftover pizza needs reheating.
  7. Man-inspired decorations. Extend the man cave theme with a selection of manly wall decor and lighting options. From framed athletic jerseys and autographed prints to cinder block bookshelves, there is a wide array of DIY decorating ideas that take little more than some basic materials and inspiration to create.
  8. Bathroom amenities. Nothing interrupts a great March Madness game like the call of nature. Installing a bathroom nearby keeps those interruptions to a minimum—particularly if there is a great deal of eating or drinking involved in the festivities.

Follow this guide step-by-step—or use it to inspire your own man cave creations. Either way, you’ll have your friends talking about your March Madness get-together long after the glow of the party has worn off.

Elmira is your one-stop shop for the must-have appliances to outfit your ultimate man cave. From keg fridges to retro microwaves to woodburning cookstoves, we offer a unique line of specialty appliances that are as functional as they are remarkable, to leave a lasting impression on your March Madness guests.

The true man cave is a statement of your own personality and style. It’s the one room in the home, other than maybe the dog house occasionally! – that a guy can call his own. From furniture to appliances, this space is a reflection of the man who calls it his home inside his home.

When it comes to design and layout, the ultimate man cave is serious business. You build your man’s reputation with the creation of spaces and unique features that entertain, amuse and energize.

Here are 8 tips to help you get it done!

And now, without further ado — let’s get on with the list

  1. Choosing the right theme. Sports bar? Mountain or outdoor? Card/pool parlor? Beach club? Race track? The ultimate man cave features a prominent theme that guides the look and feel of appliances and furniture. The theme reflects the hobbies and interests of the host.
  2. TV/viewing arrangement. The TV is the very heart of the ultimate man cave. Select a respectable flat screen (may we suggest that bigger is definitely better?) and then create an optimal viewing arrangement of couches, and recliners in a semi-circular or theater-type configuration. If you can score some vintage seats from a local arena refurb or demolition, all the better.
  3. Video gaming stations. During the course of the March Madness evening, a video game tourney will most likely break out. Set your auxiliary TV in an area away from — but close to — the main viewing area. Keep the gamers out of the line of site (“Hey, sit down!”), but still part of the action.
  4. Bar / beverage area. The service area holds infinite opportunity for personalization. Mini-bars come in wood, steel, or concrete designs — and are always stocked with an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and the necessary “accoutrements” (you know, “accoutrements” – a fancy French word for pizza, wings, tacos, etc.).
  5. Table gaming stations. Bragging rights during breaks in the March Madness tournament are vigorously exchanged. Set aside an area for various gaming tables — billiards, cards, air hockey, etc. You can also throw down an interior golf putting green for the golf fanatics in your crowd.
  6. Unique appliances for refreshments. Think specialty refrigerators for that keg in your life. And, a retro microwave is perfect for reheating cold pizza leftover from the day before. Not that leftover pizza needs reheating.
  7. Man-inspired decorations. Extend the man cave theme with a selection of manly wall decor and lighting options. From framed athletic jerseys and autographed prints to cinder block bookshelves, there is a wide array of DIY decorating ideas that take little more than some basic materials and inspiration to create.
  8. Bathroom amenities. Nothing interrupts a great March Madness game like the call of nature. Installing a bathroom nearby keeps those interruptions to a minimum—particularly if there is a great deal of eating or drinking involved in the festivities.

Follow this guide step-by-step—or use it to inspire your own man cave creations. Either way, you’ll have your friends talking about your March Madness get-together long after the glow of the party has worn off.
