MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - According to local businesses, Milwaukee playing host to the NCAA Tournament has been nothing but sweet.

Visit Milwaukee reports an estimated $4.6 million is expected to impact the local economy around the Bradley Center, including several hotels reporting sellouts for the two days of tournament action.

Experts say the nice weather and St. Patrick’s Day also helped with much-needed foot traffic and spending at local establishments.
