Saturday is a big day for sports fans: a highly anticipated boxing match, the best-loved horse race, the NFL draft, a Yankees-Red Sox game, and the NHL playoffs.
We called around to area bars and restaurants and found only one place that is going to show the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather match, which is being billed as the Fight of the Century. Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett will be screening the fight on five flatscreens from 10PM to 2AM. Entry fee will be $25 at the door and $20 in advance, and there will be drink specials provided by Montauk Brewing Company, Harpoon Brewery and Ron Diplomatico. For advance tickets, call Indian Wells at 631-267-0400.
Most area sports bars will show the Kentucky Derby. Two local eateries will have special events. East by Northeast in Montauk will serve mint juleps made with Woodford Reserve (the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby) as well as an assortment of half-price bar bites. There will be live music from 5-7PM and 8-11PM.
Ladies, wear your best hat, and gentlemen, your finest bow tie to Townline BBQ on Saturday starting at 3PM and you'll automatically be entered in their grand prize raffle. There will be complimentary bar snacks between 5:30 and 6:30PM, and drink specials including $8 Weller's mint juleps. And during the race, for those two minutes, bourbon shots are $2.
