Game Day Football Specials in the Hamptons & North Fork
It’s football season, you might have heard. And while our local New York teams are off to a, ahem, slow start, it’s not even October yet. Meaning, there’s still plenty of time for panic — or just plain reality — to set in. For now, there remains a scant glimmer of hope that the Jets and Giants will straighten out their acts in time so that the best team in New York (again) isn’t going to be located in Buffalo, and we won’t all be thinking about the 2024 draft before Halloween arrives.
For many, just watching the NFL or your favorite college team with fellow fans is the best part of the fan experience. Throw in some specials, some controversial calls, some tried-and-true rituals when the going gets tough, and suddenly you’ve got a watch party.
The Jets and Giants are off to bumpy starts, but you love football, rain or shine, so here’s a few places with dedicated, football-related specials across the East End.
