The 2018 Tournament So Far
On Thursday, March 15 at 11:15 am, the first round of the tournament will get underway with Oklahoma taking on Rhode Island. Games will be going on all day long, with the day's final game beginning just before 9 pm.
The timing is perfect because Wobbly Boots BBQ opens our doors 7 days a week at 11 am, so you are welcome to spend the entire day here with us munching on BBQ and sipping on ice cold drinks from the bar while you catch every moment of tournament action. Here's a look at the first round schedule for the next couple of days. (Click on the schedules to enlarge them.
The very first NCAA men's basketball tournament in 1939 ended with the University of Oregon defeating Ohio State University 46-33. At that time, only 8 teams were invited to participate.
Today, 68 teams are invited to compete in this single-elimination tournament. UCLA has the most titles to date with 11, followed by Kentucky with 8. North Carolina comes in third with 6 titles, the last of which they won in 2017. Who do you think will take home the trophy this year? It's going to be a lot more fun finding out when you watch with us!
Watching Basketball at the Boot
Since the tournament action goes on all day long, we've got the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks for you for lunch, dinner, and all the snacking you can handle in between! You'll find all of the best sports-watching foods to munch on, like BBQ Pork Nachos, loaded Texas Fries, and of course, those amazing jumbo Wobbly Wings.
Pair those with the choices available from our fully stocked bar, including a whopping 21 beers on tap, to raise a glass to your team when they win and you've got a great day of sports ahead of you. For the weekday games, we'll be hosting Happy Hour from 3-6 pm Monday-Friday, and when the tournament hosts games on Sunday, we'll have Happy Hour for you all day long!
With 21 TVs placed conveniently all around the restaurant and bar, plus that giant projection screen on the stage, there's not a bad seat in the house, and we are able to play every game. Whether you come in alone or bring everyone that you know, we've got plenty of room so that every sports fan gets a great view of the games.
