The only question you need to ask yourself this week is “Where am I watching the Bucks game?” If the answer is not “from the comfort of my couch” then we have some great spots to cheer the Deer with a few dozen to a few thousand of fellow fans.
Plus, the weather looks grand, so outdoor screens are the way to watch. Here are 11 establishments that sound like fun to us. And feel free to share your favorites, too.
