In addition to just being a great bar, New Moons (2440 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors) distinguishing characteristic is that you can pull up a stool, watch sports, and carry on a conversation thats evolved beyond grunting (and, co-requisite, crotch scratching). On Sundays, this Wilton Manors establishment houses both the gals from the local softball league with NFL Sunday ticket-seekers bonding together over $8 domestic buckets. Imagine A League of Their Own meets Wildcats just please dont use the term powder puff. Call 954-563-7660, or visit www.newmoonbar.com.

Its easy to feel like a football-loving fish out of water when youre a South Florida transplant. In your old city, hunkering down at a local bar was all it took to be immersed in camaraderie, the type that can only exist over a common love of specific football teams, inexpensive beer, and lots and lots of chicken wings. Fortunately, the Delray Brus Room (35 NE Second Ave., Ste. 330, Delray Beach) has your back. Its staff divides this spacious sports haven into regions, so that like-minded fans can cheer for their team-of-choice in good company. Make common allies (and nemeses) while sucking down five-for-ten domestic bottles. Youre home again. Call 561-276-3663

Thank god for teachers who grade on a bell curve. When you and your class need points the most, that trusty bonus is there for you bailing your sorry ass out yet again. The same logic applies to game day drink specials at Boca Ale House (9244 W. Glades Rd., Boca Raton). By half-time, youre drinking faster and your wallet is getting lighter; fortunately, thats precisely when the bartenders begin pouring two, three, and four-dollar specialty drinks. (If youre a dame, half-time means free wells, drafts, and wine). At those prices, youll be cheering for overtime. Call 561-487-2989.
