Sports bars across Manhattan provide Monday night specials to help you nurse your sorrows when your fantasy team’s quarterback drops the ball, or celebrate when your favorite team wins in real life.
This tiny neighborhood spot’s name rings true on gamedays, when fans pack in amidst deep drifts of sports paraphernalia. Happy Hour lasts until 7 p.m. on Mondays. The dense thickets of pennants and jerseys give Standings more soul than your standard sports bar, while eight flatscreen TVs, with game audio instead of music, assure singleness of purpose. Or perhaps duality – beer and sports share dominion here, with an impressive rotating lineup of taps focusing on American handcrafted ales and microbrews. As a surreal bonus, there’s free pizza on Fridays from 8 p.m. until supplies run out.
