    The party suite in Tampa looks like it might offer that. It does for Lightning games, not sure about the NCAA...

    Eh, if I want to drink at the Frozen 4, I'll throw a flask in my boot. Better that way, less money to the NC$$.
    Guys to my left were pulling vodka nips out all night (older dudes. Older (looking) than Mookie ).
    One kept spilling half of it on his jacket. Too funny

    Use the ESPN3 app and watch the multicam feed. No Barry.

    Or sit in the expensive seats (Club or Deck at the Garden) where the wait staff brings your drinks to you.

    And I never said the no-alcohol policy solved an issue but to allow alcohol sales at a game so kids/fans don't binge drink beforehand is absolutely the stupidest reason ever to allow alcohol sales at a game.

There is no "need" not to sell beer either. For that small minority that choose to over-drink, it just encourages them to binge drink before they get in.
