Village Voice's Description
Say hello to the highly underrated, good-natured brother of Seventh Street. But unlike legendary neighbor bars McSorley's, Jimmy's, and Burp Castle, this one doesn't emphasize its New York history or couture beer; rather, Standings focuses on sports. It has, for example, a relentless collection of sports pennants, swarming everything but the fantasy-football chalkboard and the icicles of shirts and flags hanging from the ceiling. Nonetheless, the beer selection extends way beyond your typical pub finds, providing craft brews alongside an ever-present tap of Bud Light. For those who just want to sit and watch college sports, nothing more--preferably in a completely authentic environment--Standings has one pair of plastic seats (yes, the kind you'd find in a stadium) at the ready.
Tips from foursquare
Made our Favorite 5 thanks to its no-frills memorabilia'd digs, regular free eats (Sunday bagel bar, Friday night pizza) and rotating roster of seriously interesting brews.
Free pizza every Friday at 8pm and more microbrew nights with free food than you can shake a stick at.
You can safely root for just about any team here except the Yankees.
Free pizza Fridays at 8pm, ten rotating taps, plus Guinness and Bud Light for less particular beer drinkers. Check the signs around the bar for special events with great microbrews and free food.
Gary (the owner) knows his microbrews, and the tap selection is always rotating. Ask for the takeout menus to order delivery if you miss Friday night's free pizza.
