With 23 plasma flat-screen TV’s (strategically concealed in hidden compartments to be uncovered during game time events), a giant wall sized bracket updated as the tournament progresses, and upscale bar food (including vegetarian and gluten free dishes!) prepared from scratch from Executive Chef Jared Van Camp, what more could a fan ask for?
Boasting one of the most diverse beer programs in the city--including nearly 200 beers representing 40 unique styles, ranging from West Coast IPAs to strictly-regulated Belgian trappist varieties--Old Town Social will also be celebrating with a daily lineup of drink specials, including $12 select craft beer pitchers on Saturdays, $5 well drinks on Sundays, $10 Miller Light pitchers on Thursdays, $6 Old Style and Jameson shots on Fridays. Keep an eye out for additional “day of” specials to be announced at random to our followers on Facebook and Twitter, like 25% off the bill when you come in with a group of five or more sporting your team’s gear.
With tons of prizes to be given away, OTS encourages fans to complete personal brackets, which are available on OTS's website and Facebook page. Predict the most daily wins and receive a $50 gift card for your next March Madness game day visit. Winners will be notified via email.

New Wine Dinner Series
We’re very pleased to offer a new, regular feature on our menu – a three-course Wine Dinner that is inspired by a particular winemaker, group of winemakers, or a growing region, with cuisine specifically chosen to pair with these wines.
From Thursday, February 21 through Wednesday, March 6, we are featuring the wines of Catherine & Pierre Breton, from Bourgueil in France’s Loire Valley. The Breton’s are longstanding ambassadors of Loire Valley’s potential; their delicious range of biodynamic Bourgueils, Chinons, and Chenin Blancs have earned accolades within natural wine circles – and beyond – for over 20 years.
On February 21st, Catherine will be at Telegraph to celebrate this new menu with us. An engaging ‘bon vivant’, she’ll be dining with us at the chef’s table, and, along with her friend Christine Campadieu (of Tour Vieille in Collioure), will be available for questions and conversation.
Fingerling potato salad, walnuts, Capriole Farms chevre
Breton ‘Avis de Vin Fort’
Cured foie gras, black tea, prunes
Confit pork shoulder, cipollini onion, braised greens
Breton ‘Franc du Pied’
$35 per person for dinner; $50 with wine pairings
