March Madness draws crowds at bars

ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) - March Madness is keeping sports bars busy in Marathon County.

Alex Radtke, the manager of The Bar in Rothschild, says hundreds filled the restaurant over the weekend.

He says The Bar was at capacity on both Friday and Saturday.

He says hot wings are the top selling food item. The manager says people ate thousands of them over the weekend.

"It's just been insane," said Radtke, The Bar manager. "I know we've been running out of things, we've been going through so many items, like cheese curds, a lot of deep fried foods and stuff like that."

Radtke says he expects the tournament will continue to draw large crowds, especially if the Wisconsin Badgers keep winning.
