In what’s becoming an annual event, FamousDC teamed up last night with the American Gaming Association to tip off March Madness mayhem.
Political debate was set aside for the most important contest of the evening – the NCAA basketball tournament. Guests mingled, buzzers beat and brackets busted as large screen TVs broadcasted the games throughout the AGA offices. Cheers from AGA’s poker tables and slot machines complemented the cheers coming from the evening’s enthused basketball fans.
