Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

Lucky's Pub may not be a skyscraper, but it still manages to live up to the grand scale of its downtown surroundings. For starters, there's the 21-foot HDTV, which––along with the 50 other TVs interspersed throughout the bar––ensures an un-restricted view of pro and college games from every seat. Likewise the beer list clocks in at a staggering 280-brews strong and counting, yielding almost limitless pairings when combined with pub fare such as pizzas, wings, and sandwiches like the Lucky Cubano with pork, honey ham, and swiss cheese. Add in games such as pool, shuffleboard, and darts, and Lucky's Pub is the perfect place to settle in, kick back, and stay until the games are long over and the players have all crawled back into their gym bags.
Shecky's Girls Night Out makes planning a social outing between friends easy with its dozens of fashion, jewelry, and beauty product displays and samples to peruse. Having started as a published guide to New York City nightlife, Shecky's now stages stylish shindigs across the country and has garnered nationwide notice from media outlets—including Bloomberg News —for its ladies-only soirees. Drawing on its roots as a party-planning brain trust, Shecky’s relies on a talented staff to augment vendor wares with complimentary snacks and cocktails, goody bags, and makeovers. Take a peek at one of Shecky’s past events, where, like the locker room at a WNBA game, men are conspicuously absent.
Intrepid wing-seekers can slide into King of Wings and wrap their fingers around perfectly sauced wings as well as other scrumptious casual-fare selections. Starting with shareable appetizers, diners can sink incisors into hot chili-cheese fries or practice their fencing technique with the mozzarella sticks. Wings arrive basking in the warm embrace of eight different sauces, such as lemon pepper, hickory barbecue, or chicken. Main courses of tasty protein-packed morsels napping between bread cushions delight patrons, allowing them to nosh on the smoked-cheddar-and-bacon burger or the gyro, all served with fresh-cut regular or sweet-potato fries.
Twenty television screens 42 inches and larger shroud sports fans in a high-definition blanket of live athletic combat at Coaches Pub Midtown, a friendly neighborhood watering hole specially designed to help hungry hominids tackle tasty American pub eats. Nosh fresh menu items such as fried mushrooms ($6.75) or homemade potato skins ($6) before your team's coin toss, then sneak in nibbles of the cheese-slathered half-pound Coaches pub burger ($9/dinner) between snaps of your hometown NFL or jai-alai squad. The 12-ounce grilled rib-eye steak arrives at your gnawing quarters sizzling in homemade steak sauce and neighbored by your choice of side ($15), while a proud culinary squad courteously removes the headset from each champion chicken fried steak before dousing it in creamy gravy ($12).
Platters of traditional bratwursts and kielbasa sausages march across Bar Munich’s menu in a Bavarian brigade of flavors crafted without any preservatives, fillers, hormones, or antibiotics. The juicy, beer-cooked bratwurst ($7.50) adopts the caramel maltiness of Breckenridge Avalanche ale, and the cheddar bratwurst ($7.50) hides its cheesy center beneath a thick coat of meat. Taste buds embark on a continental tour with the Eastern European–style kielbasa ($7.50), whose spices reflect the culinary traditions of countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic. All bratwursts are served on a baked roll with kraut and chips. To supplement their meaty offerings, Bar Munich teams up with a local German baker who twists fresh Bavarian-style pretzels ($5) to dunk into sides of hot or sweet mustard. Though this Groupon is not valid toward alcohol, Bar Munich fills steins and waterproof boots with Hofbräu beers by the liter. This lively nightspot also boasts an events calendar that includes regular movie nights and themed drinking games.
