One-fifth of Americans plan to visit a restaurant or bar, or order takeout or delivery from one, to watch the NCAA Tournament. Take your boss out to lunch- maybe to the local sports bar where the game just happens to be playing on a dozen mounted HDTV screens? - and let human nature take over. ADON'T FORGET TO CHYDRATE Keep yourself hydrated. Fill up at the water cooler between games.
