As sports scores flicker across the pub's five flat-screen TVs and the television on its outdoor patio, chefs in the kitchen keep revelry in session with a wealth of pub classics. They crown burgers with ingredients such as chipotle mayo and homemade chili, or sprinkle build-your-own pizzas with toppings such as feta cheese and scallops. Diners can tuck into pub favorites, such as a pastrami and swiss sandwich, fish ‘n’ chips with deep-fried haddock, and craft homemade onion rings.
At Stix & Stones, pool tables take center stage?you can show off your billiard skills during the 8-ball and 9-ball tournaments that take place every Sunday at this Abington bar.

Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations.

For the past 25 years, South Shore Sports Center has hosted soccer and basketball leagues for adults and kids. During that time, Sky Box Lounge has kept both players and spectators fueled up with quick bites and frosty drinks.

Though Westgate Lanes has been open for more than half a century, you'd never know it from just looking at the Brockton institution, which benefited from a pre-Millennium face-lift in 1999. Today, all 62 lanes feature automatic scoring, new furniture, and modern lighting, which casts a celestial aura during prize-packed cosmic bowling on Saturday nights. Open 365 days a year, the facility swings open its doors to challenge sphere-flinging friends, leagues, and parties with frames of tenpin or candlepin, a variation of bowling that uses smaller balls and requires more concentration than teaching a mechanical bull long division. High-definition TVs orbit the center's 13 billiards tables, and, between competitive rounds, players can refuel fatigued fingers at Harry's Pub and Grill.

During the game, fans can drink draft beer and feast on sports-bar food such as wings, pizza, and burgers. Afterward, friends can keep the competitive spirit alive by playing arcade games, shooting pool, or running for political office on opposing platforms.
