The Olympics aren't just about fierce competition between the world's best athletes. It's a time for fans to let loose, drink with folks from around the world, try some new food and maybe pose for a photo with the official mascot.

In this Feb. 9, 2018 file photo, fans of Russia cheer at the opening of the "Sports House," set up to support the Russian delegation of the 2018 Winter Olympics, in Gangneung, South Korea. A big draw outside the sporting events are the "houses" sponsored by national Olympic teams or tourism boards. Some of them are reserved just for athletes, their families and friends. But many are open to the public and are big party spots.nGuests get to taste a bit of each country's culture - and beer - and maybe root for the home team, even if it isn't your home country.
