March Madness has ended on Villanova's campus but continues strong in this handful of events over the next week here in and around Philly beer-town.
**Here's comes the BIG DISCLAIMER. Given the recent and extraordinary regulatory environment in Pennsylvania, I can't vouch for what will be available at these various events and what will not. I made no effort to contact any or all of these establishments. Most of these events and their details, I've left in the original state. In some cases, I've taken some license and edited if anything seemed particularly and glaringly "out-of-place." Otherwise, there still may be some events that have their particulars modified in order to still put on an event, even if not as originally scheduled. If you're really all that concerned, you should contact the establishment personally before showing up with expectations that may fall short. END DISCLAIMER**
Check out the entire March 2010 calendar over here.
If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
