Easing the Pain of Football-Related Injuries

This is not information for people who like football. If you like football, the Dolphins play the Bills at 1 p.m. Sunday. There, look away now, because this is for the poor, non-sports-loving friends and significant others who are forced to endure endless hours of men running around a field in tight pants every Sunday. For you, there’s no need to lock yourself in the bedroom or flee your own home. Lure your football fiend out of the house and into the car by making a trail of beer cans and nachos. Once you have extracted him from the domicile, the goal is to take him somewhere he can watch “the game” and you can enjoy yourself while interacting with other humans. Watching a game at the bar is not a revolutionary idea, we know, but it all depends on where you go. World of Beer in the Promenade at Coconut Creek is a good place to satisfy both of these requirements. With flat-screen TVs lining every wall in the place, your sports addict is bound to find a choice spot, and — more important — with more than 500 different beers, you’re bound to find something to lessen the gridiron pain. And finally, with no kitchen of its own, WOB patrons can order from any of the restaurants populating the Promenade. There’s even a DSW Shoes.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
