NCAA March Madness Tournament Viewing Party Sponsored by Dove Men+Care


It's March. Time for the 'big dance' to begin and for our monthly dads night out. And, time to go BIG.

Your brackets will be completed and time to put them to the test to determine if those challenging #TournamentDecisions you made were right.  Let's gather at "Public House NYC", a cool sports bar in midtown Manhattan to watch the NCAA Tourney together with a crew of other dads.  Friday, March 21 is the first round of the hoops tourney and will deliver 16 games in one day...several of which are evening games.

Dove Men+Care is launching a new campaign, #TournamentDecisions, and has agreed to sponsor "NCAA March Madness Viewing Party" Meetups in all seven of the City Dads Group locations - LA, Boston, Philly, Chicago, Denver, and Columbus - on the same night. So dads across the nation have the opportunity to meet up, watch college hoops together, and banter on social media.  Special thanks to Dove Men+Care who will be footing the bill for the food and drink!

Meeting spot: Public House NYC - conveniently located near Grand Central on 41st & Lex/3rd.  NYC Dads Group will have a private area at the mezzanine bar.

Please join us for an awesome dads night out.

    Matt and I wanted to thank you all for coming out Friday night. We had nearly 50 dads out in NYC (125+ across all of the cities) on Friday and heard from many of you that this was the best dads group event that you had ever attended. Hat tip to Garrett Ewald for such a great photo. Here's the Link: NYC Dads Group: Easy #TournamentDecisions: Watching the NCAA Tournament with City Dads Group

    Like you guys, we want to have more events like this in the future. Please take a moment to thank our sponsor via twitter: @DoveMenCare using #TournamentDecisions hashtag.

    An example: "Thank you @DoveMenCare for sponsoring our @nycdadsgroup #citydads night out watching march madness. It was awesome! #TournamentDecisions"

    thanks again,
    Lance and Matt

    The goal for tonight is to hang out with other dads, watch college hoops, eat, drink, and enjoy. With that said, we'd like to support our sponsor @DoveMenCare in the hopes we can have more of these events in the future.
    Please join us over on Twitter tonight using hashtags #TournamentDecisions­ and #CityDads.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
