Beers, wine or cocktails? U. bar scene has you covered

There is a widely observed magical period of the day after work and school known as happy hour, where the price of drinks and food are slashed and the worn out masses can get sloshed instead of their wallets. New Brunswick in all its scarlet spirit and liveliness has some great ways to do happy hour and researching the best there is to offer has been a blast.

March Munchies is a single-elimination tournament between 32 restaurants in the Rutgers/New Brunswick area voted on by members of the community. It is inspired by the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament affectionately known as March Madness and runs through the entire month of March.

Satisfy your March Munchies. Who will you vote for?

As everyone flips their calendars to March, sports fans will turn their attention to college basketball for arguably the greatest post-season competition — the NCAA college basketball tournament, a competition so unpredictable that it’s become known as March Madness. So in the spirit of a great American tradition, The Daily Targum is introducing the biggest food contest Rutgers University and its local restaurant scene has ever seen: March Munchies. The tournament's name is a tip of the hat to its basketball doppelgänger and is a 32-restaurant, single-elimination tournament — half the amount of participants as the NCAA tournament but with all of the excitement. The court begins at the border of the Douglass and College Avenue campus and stretches deep into the depths of Easton Avenue.
