You want to watch sports with some friends, and maybe share a couple pitchers of beer - ideally something other than Hoegaarden or Goose Island. Get a table or some bar seats at Dive Bar, a dimly-lit sports bar with over 30 beers on tap (most of which are available by the glass, growler, and pitcher). Once the Jets are down by 24 and you want to focus on something else, start working your way through their huge menu of bar food, or switch locations to the sidewalk tables out front.
