We have just about 24 hours left till the UCLA tips off against VCU and what feels like rest of the nation. There are not going to be that many people rooting for JS, DC, PAA and rest of our Ben Ball warriors except for those who bleed blue and gold:

We know there will be few hundred lucky Bruins tomorrow night in Philly cheering on our guys. For the rest of us,we have to hit our local bars and find local Bruin gatherings to take in UCLA hoops. Here is the link to time and schedule for CBS coverage, however, I have not been able to locate a CBS broadcast map. If any of you spot it please share it in the comment thread.
If you are looking for Bruin gatherings near you here are some of the shindigs we are aware of for Thursday night:
- Let's start with the Big Apple. Alums in NYC will be watching at "Southern Hospitality" located at 1460 Second Ave., between 76th and 77th Streets. We have also heard that a nice contingent of alums from NYC are getting on a "party bus" to head down to Philly.
- Down the I-95, alums in DC will be watching the game at Bar Louie at 701 7th St NW (#D) in Chinatown. Also few alums from DC are heading up for Thursday night's game.
- In Chicago, the Bruins watch their games at Joe's Bar, located at 940 W. Weed St. Here are the details
- Back in LA, alums are getting together in South Bay to watch Thursday's game. People are getting together at The Tavern on Main St. 123 Main St. (between El Segundo Blvd. and Grand Ave. Sounds like they have their own version of "Bruin Den" set up and all ready to go.
If you can’t head out to a bar you can always sign for Sportsline's March Madness on Demand. The feed back on MMOD was pretty good last year. And as always we will have a game thread ROCKING here on BN tomorrow night. We will also have a pre-game thread going up earlier in the day. So I am sure fellow BNers will be more than happy to keep you up to date.
As always keep in mind - even though the get togethers listed above are hosted by alums - of course, they are open to every member of Bruins Nation.
As for the get-togethers listed above those are the ones we know of. For more on alumni club football watching parties visit this site. If you have info on where the alumni group are watching the games in your town, post the info here.
