The News has you covered as you look for a place to go between sessions of today’s NCAA Tournament games in downtown Buffalo.

Here is what we know so far:

• A free shuttle will take fans to the Chippewa district between games for food and drink.

• Businesses in the Ellicott Square Building, a half-mile walk north of First Niagara Center, are staying open late for game attendees looking to sample Buffalo delicacies like Charlie the Butcher’s beef on weck.

• Food trucks have set up at Main and Exchange streets to serve patrons between sessions.

• It is bound to fill up fast, but the Anchor Bar is not overwhelmingly crowded right now as the Syracuse game winds down.

• If you really want a short walk, The News’ fifth-floor cafeteria is open to the public between games.

• Here is a list of food and drink options that are walkable from First Niagara Center for between sessions.

• The NFTA is running an extra train after the Syracuse game to help move fans up Main Street in between tournament sessions.

• One lot on Scott Street near the corner of Michigan Avenue was charging $50 to park this morning. A few blocks away from First Niagara Center, on Seneca, lots were charging $30.

Some fans found parking for $15 across from Coca-Cola Field, which is at the corner of Washington and Swan streets. The charge at a lot at Main and Exchange streets is also $15. Both are relatively short walks to First Niagara Center.

• For out-of-towners, here is a visitor’s guide with plenty of clickable links to get up to speed on Buffalo.
