The Stumble Inn is from the same people as Hair Of The Dog and six other bars that all feel like they’re here to help undergrads transition into the real world without too much of a shock. Like the others, this location on the Upper East Side has great drink specials, including half-off beer on weekends, and plenty of TVs. Just know that about half the people here will be more interested in doing the music video dance moves to the songs on the speakers than watching the game.

Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
