Celebrate a Mindful March Madness

March Madness is officially here, which means it’s time to show up and show out for your favorite college basketball teams. Even if you’re not a big-time basketball fan, the energy of excitement will be contagious as 68 teams from across the country compete for the title of national championship in a single-elimination tournament. To get in on the fun this March Madness season, we’re sharing our tips on how to throw the ultimate March Madness viewing party with WYNK THC Seltzer and tips for completing your bracket. 

How to Throw the Ultimate March Madness Viewing Party

As a non-alcoholic seltzer brand, we want to inspire you to get creative with your March Madness celebrations—there are plenty of ways to enjoy all the fun of this tournament without compromising your wellness routine. So whether you’re a lifelong fan or just here for the snacks, read on for some of our best tips on how to throw a March Madness viewing party.

Decorate your space with a basketball theme

Create a one-of-a-kind experience for you and your guests by decorating with thoughtful, basketball-themed elements. If you have a favorite team, use their colors or mascot as inspiration for your decorations. You could also take a more general approach with basketballs, hoops, and airhorns adorning your space. Whatever you decide, just make sure to have fun with it. 

Make a spread of snacks and drinks

No sporting event is complete without some game day snacks and beverages. You can’t go wrong with classic appetizers like chicken wings, chips, snack mix, and hot dogs but you can also get creative with your spread. If you’re a baker, make a basketball-shaped cake or cupcakes decorated with different teams’ colors. If you’re more of a savory fan, take the usual spread to the next level with some pulled pork sliders or fresh jalapeno poppers. 

For drinks, it’s important to make sure there is a little something for everyone. Make sure to have a cooler full of WYNK that your guests can easily grab and enjoy. You can also whip up some WYNK mocktails to pair with your snacks to make your event feel special and unique. With a balanced dose of CBD and THC, your guests will be able to have fun and catch every moment of the games.

Make a game day playlist

While the games are the star of your party, music can help set the tone for any downtime or for your guests who are more interested in socializing. Pick songs that motivate you and make you feel like you’re going to score a three-pointer. Lively music will match the energy of a stadium and make your friends and family get into the excitement of the moment. 

Set up basketball hoops

After watching a few games, you may feel inspired to shoot some hoops yourself. Try setting up a small basketball hoop over your trash can so people can practice their jump shots—and clean up at the same time. You can also toss a small hoop over a door in your home or a full-sized basketball hoop on your garage door. This will give your March Madness watch party an interactive experience that your guests will love. 

Have a spirit contest

Encourage people to get into the spirit of the game by dressing up in support of their favorite team and offering a prize for the best dressed. Think of it like those pep rallies we all remember from our high school days. Prizes can be big or small depending on your budget—maybe offer up a case of WYNK for added motivation. 

Fill out a bracket

Filling out a bracket is an essential part of any March Madness watch party. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert at predicting the outcomes or just enjoy filling out your bracket for fun, there’s something thrilling about guessing the twists and turns of this tournament. Regardless of your skill level, filling out a bracket can be a fun way to participate in March Madness by bringing together loved ones and coworkers in friendly competition. 

To get started, you’ll need to download a printable bracket or use an online tool to fill out your picks. Then, select who you think will win each step of the way. This can be based on expert analysis or just use your intuition and see what happens! If you’re competing with friends, make sure to submit your bracket on time. 

It’s important to keep in mind that this is meant to be fun. Even the most seasoned March Madness fan can’t predict all of the upsets and victories. So don’t take yourself too seriously and just do your best.

Whether you decide to host a viewing party, attend a viewing party, or watch the action unfold solo, WYNK is the perfect mindful companion for March Madness. Offering a social buzz and four different flavors to choose from, you can sip in style while savoring every moment of the big game. Cheers to an exciting tournament!
