My experience in the world of sports piqued when I joined my local tee ball league; I spent my time in left field picking flowers and after hitting the ball, I may or may not have run to third base first. Needless to say, I don’t know a thing about sports.
That being said, I’m told that the NCAA Final Four (that’s basketball, folks) is upon us, and to celebrate, since the games are being played in Houston, Four Seasons Hotel Houston is offering some pretty cool specials. If you're a local and weren't able to score tickets (or just happen to be breezing through town), and want to enjoy the games in style, hit up the Lobby Lounge for salmon sashimi cleverly shaped like basketballs. (Just try to tell me those aren’t awesomely adorable.) For $16, you’ll score four.
And let’s be real: even I know that a libation or two (or four) go hand-in-hand with any sporting event. So be sure to take advantage of the $12 martinis, made just for the Final Four. There’s the 3 Point Paloma (Patron Silver tequila, Patron Citronage, grapefruit soda and grapefruit juice), Tenacious “D” Dark and Stormy (Pyrat rum, ginger beer and lime), Elite 8 Cosmo (Ultimat Vodka, Patron Citronage, and cranberry juice), and Ultimat Fast Break (Ultimat Vodka and Red Bull).
Oh, and of course, the games will be playing on large TVs in the bar. Y’know, if that’s your sort of thing. You can take advantage of this deal now until Monday, April 4, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
