The month of March is the best month for basketball fans, which means that it’s also the best month for basketball fans to get together and watch all the action over food and drinks. If you want your March basketball party to go from a layup to a rim-shaking slam dunk, you might want to consider these fantastic recipes.
March basketball is better with hot wings, and what better way to enjoy wings than with a delicious, homemade blue cheese dip?
Impress your guests by baking your own pizza rather than phoning it in from the local pizza joint. Smoked ham and fresh mozzarella add a homemade touch to this gameday fave.
Add some yummy seafood to your menu by coating shrimp in a delicious mixture of spices and coconut, then baking for just 10-12 minutes. Not a fan of shrimp? Experiment with chicken tenders instead.
You only need 30 minutes to make this indulgent dip, which includes jalapenos and pepper jack cheese to turn up the heat a little bit.
It’s good to have a non-alcoholic option for beverages at your March basketball party, so have this fresh iced tea with a bit of summery citrus handy to wash it all down.
You don’t want to wait until the buzzer before you start putting together your March basketball party plans. If you need more groceries than your old ride can handle, stop into DeVoe Buick GMC and get a homecourt advantage with a new Buick or GMC.

2015 Buick Regal
The 2015 Buick Regal sedan has been praised by the government for its safety. In fact, the Buick Regal five-star safety rating was recently announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)—the arm of the government concerned with vehicle safety.
This rating is based on three different tests: a frontal crash test, in which the Regal scored four stars; a side crash test, which awarded the Regal five stars; and a rollover crash test, which gained another four stars for the Regal.
This rating is for both the front-wheel and all-wheel-drive models of the Buick Regal.
The 2015 Buick Regal comes standard with a rearview camera, six airbags, stability control, traction control, and antilock brakes. Optional features include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, and side blind zone alert.
The 2015 Buick Regal is already on dealer lots, and we are very excited at DeVoe Buick GMC to be able to offer you a top five-star safety rated vehicle.
We love it when car reviewers from big organizations get behind the wheel of cars we sell to see what they think. Most of the time we see nothing but glowing reviews! And a glowing review is exactly what we got from the New York Times earlier this month on the 2014 Buick Regal.
Mr. Tom Voelk had this to say about the new and improved Regal after his extended test drive:
“The Regal’s handsome lines and capable sport sedan moves are what interest (my son). The car — sold in Europe as the Opel Insignia — is also quiet, comfortable and, at $38,270 as tested, stuffed with technology that was science fiction in the ‘60s.”
So it’s loaded with technology, looks cool, is quiet and comfortable, and is appealing to a wide range of age groups? Awesome!
whether you are looking for a nice luxury car as you start your career, or you’re just getting settled into retirement, the 2014 Buick Regal deserves a good hard look. Come take one for a test drive of your own at DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples today!
J.D. Power and Associates is an organization that tests all sorts of products to see which ones are the best. According to their website, they strive to “Recognize Excellence” in everything from cars, to home cabinetry – they even test TV’s. And after testing large pickup trucks to see which one was most dependable, they discovered that the GMC HD full-size pickup – including 2500HD ¾-ton and 3500HD 1-ton models – was the most dependable!
According to Tony DiSalle, VP of GMC Marketing, ““The Sierra HD is the most powerful, most capable pickup GMC has ever built. Our engineers designed this truck to do the job well and to do it every day. We expect all of our vehicles to perform at the highest level every time a customer gets behind the wheel.”
And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, the Sierra 1500 and Yukon were runners-up in their respective segments. The bottom line is, GMC makes some of the most dependable trucks and SUVs available today. So if you’re looking for a new truck that you can depend on, stop by DeVoe Buick GMC and try one out.
Josh Max from the New York Daily News recently took a 2013 GMC Terrain Denali for a spin around the streets of New York. We weren’t surprised at all when we read his review and saw that he seemed to have a very nice time in the Terrain Denali and had some nice things to say about it. According to Max, “SUVs may have seen their heyday come and go, but the Terrain Denali proves the auto industry can adapt to customers’ desire for size and everybody’s need to go easy on their gas money.” But that’s not all he had to say; Max was also impressed by the lane-departure warning system and the fact that you can turn it on or off whenever you like, as well as the “mighty-looking” exterior.
