SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- With the big Syracuse versus Georgetown matchup falling at the same time as Syracuse's Saint Patrick's Parade, many people were torn between which event to watch.
Luckily there were several places downtown where you could do both. The Landmark Theatre opened their doors to SU fans, showing the game on a big screen TV, in the lobby. Their bar also featured green beer and cocktails. Since they are right on the parade route, patrons were also able to wander outside between plays.
"It's a lot of fun to come home and still experience the same great fun, cause we have SU playing, and we have the parade right outside. You couldn't ask for anything better," said Michael Rainbow, Syracuse University student.
There was also entertainment at halftime, with the Neverly Brothers playing Irish favorites.
