What You'll Get
Although 94% of the ref’s calls are incorrect, hostilely confronting him at his son's birthday party is illegal. Give sportpinions their proper venue with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of food and drink, plus a basket of wafer fries and onion rings, at Down the Hatch in the West Village. This Groupon is not valid toward happy-hour specials, $1 drafts, $2 shots, or Down the Hatch's $21-per-person special. It is valid toward all other specials.
Down the Hatch supplies a sports fan's subterranean sanctuary with burgers, wings, and more. The Atomic Wings promise an Oppenheimer-approved assault on gastronomic Geiger counters—get the six-wing combo with fries or onion rings ($7.99) or brave a bucket of 50 burning wings ($34.99). Wing sauce flavors range from "mild" and "hot" to "suicidal" and "bite me." Burgerwise, Down the Hatch slings bun-bookended bites in beef, turkey, or veggie variations ($8.25, with fries, onion rings, or tater tots), and competitive eaters can keep stomachs stretched for Fourth of July festivities with a classic hot dog ($2). Numerous starters are available, including sweet-corn fritters ($4.99) and jalapeño poppers ($6.99), but as a bonus for Groupon buyers, Down the Hatch is including a free combination basket of its famous wafer fries and onion rings with this deal ($5.99 value).
Between re-energizing sips of beer and other alcoholic drinks, check in on The Big Game with one of the nine satellite flat-screen televisions, or sidle up to the foosball table for rotating-bar rowdiness. There are also a variety of specials throughout the week. Visit Down the Hatch for a plethora of food, alcohol, and general debauchery guaranteed to put a jealousy-tinged smile on the face of Babe Ruth.
Customers must be at least 21 years old.
