Continuing our series this week on places to catch some Sunday Funday Football action, we stop at an area close to home…In fact it is the home of the Rat! Belmar and Lake Como have been near and dear to hour little Rat hearts for the past quarter century, and why not?
The beach, the bars, the action is all within a couple of square miles. When the Autumn comes and the vacationers leave, that’s when football is in the air and the locals flock to the Belmar and Lake Como watering holes for some serious NFL action and fun.
The bar landscape has changed quite a bit over the years in this neck of the woods, but some old staples remain. While some new names have popped up in recent years and are worth checking out for a day out watching the Jets, Giants, Eagles, or whomever you root for.
When it comes to NFL Sundays, the food is always key to a great experience, and in Belmar and Lake Como there is great grub to grab everywhere during the games. From Lunch to Dinner, football appetizers, to full blown halftime buffets. Plus some of the bars on this random list do game day, game time giveaways, from food and drinks, to authentic NFL jerseys, and even actual tickets to a future game!
As a resident of Ocean County, a place has to be worth it for me and the Mrs to drive a half hour to go watch the games. Belmar and Lake Como are worth the trip, it’s that simple. One of the best things about the bar scene here holds as true for football watching as it does for summertime shenanigans. That is, that many of these places are within walking distance of each other, so you can bounce around game to game or even half to half on a Sunday afternoon!
