Destination of the Day: United Center, Chicago-Near West Side, IL

Destination 2 in the series "Nothing but net"

The United Center, the home of both the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Blackhawks, hosts the NCAA men's tournament from 18-20 March.  The stadium is nicely located in the Near West Side community west of downtown Chicago and has off-street parking, local and express bus access, and nearby El stops.   While nearby  bar and restaurant options are a bit difficult to come by, further east (between downtown and the stadium) there are a few options as well as a few on Ashland Avenue.
