It’s game time and that means plenty of finger food and brew. The 40/40 Club, co-owned by hip hop mogul (and dedicated New York sports fan) Jay Z, offers tons of flatscreens and plenty of space  for everyone to enjoy the game. It feels a bit like a nightclub but that’s part of the fun. You can even reserve a private VIP lounge with your own billiard table, two 55-inch screen HD televisions, and much more. Bottoms up!
