Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of delicious pub fare and drinks at 1st and 10 Sports Bar and Grill in New Milford.
With more than 20 flat screens, 13 premium sports packages, 14 beers on tap, and a menu of bar fare prepared by graduates of the Culinary Institute of America, 1st and 10 Sports Bar and Grill covers all the bases of sports-bar bliss. Kick off a culinary contest with the bayou oysters served with cocktail sauce and fresh lemon ($8.99), or tackle a basket of rib tips slathered in house-made barbecue sauce ($7.99). Chicken wings showcase the depth and breadth of the menu with 20 flavors— including caribbean jerk, Cajun rub, and spicy buffalo—and five basket sizes ($4.99–$19.99), and they pair perfectly with a frosty draft ale, lager, or porter ($4–$6). Alternately, seek meaty solace with the Big Chuck burger—two quarter-pound beef patties with lettuce, cheese, onions, and pickles on double-decker grilled texas toast and served with chips ($9.99).
A 65-foot bar supplies prime seating for fans to eat, drink, and ogle the row of plasma TVs behind it. Weekly events including trivia and live music turn spectators into active participants, body-checking boredom until 1 a.m. every weeknight and 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
