Butler’s run boosts bar business

Butler University’s second straight run to the NCAA men’s championship basketball game is keeping local bars and restaurants busy. Some taverns in Broad Ripple opened as early as 10 a.m. on Saturday, and fans showed up early despite an early-evening start time for Butler’s victory over Virginia Commonwealth University. Some bars even set up tents to accommodate additional fans. Bars expect similar crowds for Monday’s championship game against the University of Connecticut, which starts at 9:23 p.m.
