Walk into a crowded sports bar with a group, find out that you’re not going to be able to sit until this batch of games is over, and then spend 45 minutes arguing about where to go instead. Or you could plan to go to Croxley’s in Williamsburg. Not only does the huge space have enough bar seating and tables to accommodate everyone playing strangely competitive softball in McCarren Park, but their website also allows you to check wait times and put your name in for a table before you leave your apartment. Once you do get there, order something from their huge draft beer list, and some very good buffalo wings. Before you decide to be a hero and order the “cry like a baby” variety, know that they’re some of the spiciest we’ve ever had.
