September 26, 2018 | Budget Gourmet
Fall only means one thing - FOOTBALL!
Time to break out those fan jerseys and plan those weekly viewing parties. Whether it’s beer or snacks you crave during the game, these spots across Long Island have a bit of both. Just remember you are bound to be surrounded by some of the most dedicated New York fans out there and you’re sure to be asked: "Giants or Jets?"
What better spot to catch the games than the oldest, continuously operating bar in Huntington? Finnegan’s serves up beer and snack specials during the Sunday and Monday NFL games. Of course there are wings, pick your temperature mild, regular, hot or ghost chili, for $13.50 an order. A must-try is the local beer battered fried pickles with a sriracha-honey aioli. Pair them with a Montauk Brewing Co. beer for only $4 a pint or $14 a pitcher.
If you're looking to catch the Thursday night game, Library Café is the spot. With two-for-one beer specials, it’s a win-win for thirsty viewers. Pair those brews with some tasty snacks such as the slow smoked BBQ rib tips, Buffalo chicken “crack dip” skillet or the Bar Pie pizza. During the Sunday games, grab a bucket of Coronas for $20 to wash it all down.
If you're in the Hamptons, we’ve got football deals for you! The Springs Tavern serves up $5 bar bites and $5 Heinekens during the Thursday, Sunday and Monday games. Jalapeño poppers, vegetable egg rolls, fried mushrooms, clam strips, corn fritters, wings and more are all the perfect football snack.
Right in downtown Port Jefferson, Tommy’s Place is the spot if you don’t want to miss a second of the games. With 35 (yes 35) HD LED TVs, Tommy’s Place is a sports lover’s dream. The specials are simple - $7 Miller Lite pitchers and half price wings - but there’s much more to enjoy. The full bar has a selection of more than 30 craft and local brews, while the kitchen turns out everything from fried calamari and crabcakes to flatbreads and creative salads.
If you like BBQ, this is your spot to catch the games. With six large screen TVs throughout the space, Townline won’t let you miss a single play. Add in some delicious drink deals and tasty snacks and you’ve got the perfect football recipe! Enjoy half priced pint coolers at the bar with creative concoctions such as the Breakfast of Champions mixed with Old Overholt Rye Whiskey, fresh grapefruit juice, Dry Vermouth and Fee Brothers Orange Bitters. There’s also $5 shots, $15 pitchers and $4 Modelos, surely something for everyone. To satisfy your hunger, try the giant pretzel, Townline wings or the Garbage fries with cheese sauce, chopped brisket, sour cream and jalapeños.
