Watch Football, Eat
    Those who like to have a bite at a local eatery while not missing a football game will find specials at the bar every Sunday and Monday night during the games at Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett. A hamburger, six chicken wings, and a pint of draft beer will be offered for $16 on Monday nights at the bar or in the dining room, and items on a bar menu, served only to those who belly up, will be $5. All pints of draft beer will be $4 during football games.
    At Muse in the Harbor in Sag Harbor, a special bar menu will be offered on Monday nights from 5 p.m. until the end of the game, and draft beers will be $4. To spice things up, bartenders will allow customers ordering a draft beer to roll a pair of dice; if they roll doubles, the beer will be on the house.
