Finnerty’s is an East Village sports bar with a BYO food policy, so you can bring in Han Dynasty or Joe’s Pizza whenever you get hungry - both are a block away. They also offer the option to reserve a keg, which is a good move if you want to day drink with a big group while watching pretty much any game you want (they have a lot of TVs).
