Splash Magazines Worldwide is going to help you make the most of your Las Vegas experience so that you can enjoy all of the nonstop basketball action, last-second buzzer beaters and wagers galore all while finding the best places to enjoy cocktails, world-class food and the biggest televisions in the world.

March Madness is the pinnacle for any basketball fan and while you can attend tournament games throughout the country or take the action at home, nothing creates an atmosphere quite like Las Vegas. March Madness tips off this year on March 21st (the round of 64), but when it comes to Las Vegas there is more to experience than just showing up to watch the games.

This year several new venues are offering a March Madness experience that is certainly worth a visit. Proper Eats Food Hall  is offering a slam-dunk all-you-can-eat extravaganza for basketball fans to enjoy during the biggest college bracket of the year. Fans can catch the action with two viewing sessions available each game day of the first weekend of play. Morning sessions run from  9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., followed by afternoon sessions from 3:15 p.m. to 9 p.m. Guests seated in the bar and lounge area during these viewing sessions will be able to purchase all-you-can-eat packages for $75, with drink options available a la carte. After a well-received Super Bowl experience, it seems as if Proper Eats already has the type of event perfected. You are greeted at a host stand, given a wristband, seated at a booth, high top or couch and from there a cocktail server will take your order and take care of you so you don’t miss any of the action.

The George Sportsmen’s Lounge located inside the recently opened Durango Casino & Resort is offering half and full-day packages with their March Mayhem package that gives you a center-court seat to take in all of the action. For more information, visit: The George
