Are You Ready For Some Football?

During the fall the only thing that we here in Massachusetts might take more seriously than our pumpkin spiced, well, everything, is football. And nothing is better than watching the game, drinking a beer and chowing down on some awesome food with friends and fans alike. These are some of our favorite spots to catch a game in the Watertown area:

Skybokx 109 is located at 319 Speen Street in Natick. This is your modern day sports bar with twenty-two TVs; a gastropub menu featuring wings, pizza and burgers; and a variety of craft beers on draft. Their Tailgate Brunch on Sundays from 11AM to 3 PM includes some awesome menu items, including the Bloody “Hail” Mary, which comes garnished with a cheeseburger slider, shrimp cocktail, bacon and a hardboiled egg. On Mondays, from 5 PM to close, they offer a burger for only $5.99. Plenty of reasons to hunker down at Skybokx 109 for the next big game!

Head on over to Lulu’s Allston at 421 Cambridge Street the next time you feel like catching some football while indulging in some awesomely creative comfort food. They offer a brunch, lunch and dinner menu packed full of items that Executive Chef Sarah Wade describes as “gourmet junk food”. The beer list is extensive with an equal number of on tap and bottled selections . In fact, you might be excited to find beer in some of their menu items like the Smokin’ Blonde Beer Cheese Soup. Check it out - we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Donohue’s Bar and Grill, located at 87 Bigelow Avenue in Watertown, is your quintessential hometown sports bar with a loyal customer base. Donohue’s has dubbed itself “sports bar central” with its twenty-two TVs and NFL Sunday Ticket. They also offer weekly trivia contests, karaoke, and a function room that can seat seventy. Follow them on Instagram, @donohuesbarandgrill, to stay up to date on their weekly sports related specials and promotions. 

If you’re a wings aficionado, you may already be familiar with Buff’s Pub at 317 Washington Street in Newton. Their menu includes starters, sandwiches, salads, and burgers, but it’s their award-winning wings that really draw the crowds. They come in a variety of flavors, including honey hot, spicy teriyaki, chipotle and the standard buffalo (also offered as boneless tenders). We suggest pairing your meal with a seasonal beer while watching the game on one of their eight flat screens. They only accept cash, though, so be sure to swing by the ATM before stopping in!
