Lucky to score some noise bleed seats well in advance for the NCAA Basketball Tournament at the Honda Center in Anaheim.  Problem though with NCAA events is that they do not sell beer.  That means all the fans including me had to find a spot close to the arena to enjoy a cold one.  There just happens to be ONE bar directly across the street from the entrance to the Honda Center.  It is called JT Schmid's and on game day it is PACKED!  There is a line to enter the bar and everyone gets the shakedown for an I.D. before entering.  Once inside, it is like bumper to bumper with people.  You literally have to turn sideways at times to get through the crowd.  JT Schmid's does a good job though   and we always were able to grab a beer.  Usually from small satellite bars set up around the inside and outside of the bar.  For the Thursday Double Header, the place was extremely packed with hundreds of Arizona and San Diego State fans.  They actually set up a big tailgate area outside for the Arizona fans and a smaller party indoors for San Diego State.  Wisconsin and Baylor had fewer fans and I did not see anything big happening for them.  We spent some time in the Arizona area where beers were $9 each.  They also served up some pretty good tacos.  We spent some time inside where the staff helped us secure a nice table where we ordered lunch.  I had a cup of Chili and some Chicken Wings.  Both were mediocre at best.  Food was not that great but the service was excellent considering the crowd.  Went back for the Saturday game and the place was busy but not as busy as the Thursday crowd.  We again received great service and got a table.  The bar totally empties out about 20 minutes before game time and then fills up again after.  This was definitely the PLACE TO BE on game day.
