Don’t go to Hair Of The Dog and complain to us when an NYU undergrad chugs your mom’s pinot grigio thinking it’s lemon water. There’s nothing refined about this dark, crowded bar on the LES, but if you’re fine with that, then the abundance of big screens and projectors makes it a good place to watch sports. They also have drink specials everyday and half-off beer on weekends, so you can play some cheap games of beer pong against a couple guys in Bengals jerseys taking it way too seriously.
