The Big Whiskey is part of the same group as Whiskey Town, The Whiskey Annex, and a bunch of other bars around the city with whiskey in their names. As you might imagine, they offer a bunch of whiskeys here, which can come in handy if your starting QB seems to forget which color jerseys to throw to, or you’re a fan of the Jets. There’s a long bar as well as a bunch of booths for big groups, and no matter where you’re sitting or standing, you’ll have a good view of the raised TVs behind the bar. The big space, which feels like a converted warehouse, also has a couple beer pong tables in the basement in case some people in your group don’t feel like sitting in the same spot for seven hours straight.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
Everybody loves a good farm-focused restaurant. We especially love this Clinton Hill one.
Buttermilk Channel is a true Brooklyn Neighborhood Hang serving some of the best fried chicken in town.
