The Final Four games start tomorrow, and you need two things to help you scream, “Go Badgers!” at the top of your lungs: food and drink. It’s a good thing, then, there are plenty of awesome deals hitting Dallas and Fort Worth this weekend. Let’s drink to that.

DRINKING

The Omni Dallas Hotel’s Owners Box is giving out great deals this week for March Madness. Enjoy drafts of Miller Lite, Bud Light, and Shiner Bock for $4, domestic beer buckets for $20, house wines for $7, and house margaritas for $7.

EATING

March Madness meatballs are being served up at Brick House and Tap for just $5. There are classic meatballs, served with a light basil marinara sauce; Greek Keftedes made with lamb, pesto, and goat cheese; Buffalo chicken tossed in Frank’s RedHot sauce, and drunken pork with bacon, buttermilk, and a whiskey barbecue glaze. There will also be a “Balls to the Wall” contest, for a chance to win $100 Brick House gift cards and a grand prize for $1,000.

The Final Four is bringing not only basketball to AT&T Stadium, but new recipes for their concession stand. Take a bite into the zone chef-crafted burger with a signature stadium-blend of certified angus chuck and certified angus brisket, topped with garlic aioli, aged cheddar, and caramelized balsamic onions. Or maybe the champion chicken and waffles are calling out your name with a side of house-made waffle fries. There are plenty of other items that will get your taste buds watering.

PARKING

Parking before any big game can be a disastrous situation, but Olenjack’s Grille just made your transportation that much easier. Spend $40 on a meal before the Final Four NCAA finals, from April 5 through April 7, and make your way onto the Olenjack’s shuttle for free transportation to the game.
