It’s about that time when workplace productivity goes out the window and my parenting becomes way more lax and includes more screen time than I would like. Why all these changes in people’s lives nationwide? Because it’s March Madness! And if you love the excitement of college sports, or sports in general, here are some family friendly places to watch sports in Chicagoland.
Multiple locations throughout Chicagoland
Insider tip: Be sure to pick up one of the complimentary tablets for your kids to keep busy while you sit back, relax with a beer, and watch the game on one of their many televisions.
Chicago and Schaumburg
Insider tip: Every seat in the house has a great view of televisions, whether you book your own bowling lane, hit up the arcade, or try your hand at karaoke.
Bartlett, Edison Park, Fox Lake, Hoffman Estates, Lake in the Hills, Mount Prospect, Schaumburg
Insider tip: As long as they aren’t extremely crowded, your server will give you some pizza dough for your child to play with at the table. Kids also eat free Mondays after 4 p.m.
Chicago, Lombard, Orland Park, Warrenville
Insider tip: Their menu offers a ton of great appetizers that can serve as a great meal for your kiddos if they have a more adventurous palette than traditional kids’ fare.
Glenview and Chicago (New City)
Insider tip: Their dessert menu has a ton of delicious choices so I highly recommend that you use a sweet as bribery if need be. Yep, that’s right, sometimes I bribe my kids. I am so not perfect, but whatever. The Yard House has a great kids’ menu with tons of healthy options, so don’t feel bad having a bit of a sweet treat at the end of the meal.
