Last night, Jay-Z hosted the Grand Opening for his new 40/40 Club at The Barclays Center. Joining him at the event were big name celebs and a handful of gifted athletes. Rihanna, J Cole, and Questlove were in attendance, as well as a handful of players from the Brooklyn Nets. The new dad was all smiles at the event, excited to bring some happiness to Brooklyn.
Those who have awaited the highly anticipated arena will be more than satisfied with the results. The 40/40 Club looks out into the massive arena, giving bar goers another venue to watch the game from. The club is covered with flat screen TVs, with dining tables, swanky seats, and a giant bar right in the center of it all. It is sure to be packed on game nights.

Opening today is Key Biscayne's newest casual dining destination that has taken over the old Rickenbacker Fish Company and made it into one heck of a party. Largely located under one giant tiki hut, Whiskey Joe's is the place for nachos, wings, sliders, burgers, and all other manner of good ole American bar food, as well as oysters, peel-and-eat shrimp, tropical salads, and fresh catch-of-the-day seafood entrées. Fisherman can also bring their own catches to the restaurant where the staff will be more than glad to cook your fresh-caught seafood to order. Accessible by land and by sea, with ample dock space available to boaters, Whiskey Joe's will be the place for the sea-faring and those firmly grounded on land to enjoy sports games along with their favorite beers. However, those who wish to sip on something a little more tropical can enjoy some of Whiskey Joe's specialty drinks, like the açai margarita or rock coconut mojito.

A classic print of New York Knick great Patrick Ewing scoring over Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan hangs elegantly in the entranceway of Warren 77, immediately keying visitors in to two things: one, this sports bar is not your run-of-the-mill ESPN Zone hangout and two, this place is quintessentially New York. Co-owned by Matt Ambramcyck of Smith & Mills and Employee's Only (as well as the dearly departed Beatrice Inn) and New York Ranger man-about-town, Sean Avery, Warren 77 (located on - surprise - 77 Warren Street in TriBeCa) is a small but stylish place to catch the remainder of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the upcoming Wimbledon Championships, and summer games of America's Favorite Pastime.
Opening at 4 pm tonight, walking into the George Street Pub will give you the choice of nearly 50 beers - 16 on tap and 30 bottled - as well as what UrbanDaddy calls "New Orleans-tinged seafood" (like fish and chips, a fried walleye sandwich, and jumbalaya), burgers, and an assortment of fried appetizers. Your taste buds will surely thank you once you mix your meal with the perfect brew, and it's definitely possible with as many choices as there are available. The place isn't huge, but it offers a cozy atmosphere - with high-ish ceilings that help you not feel claustrophobic when the space gets a little crowded. Just in time for baseball season, you can catch the games on one of many televisions or take your food and drink outside to the patio once this brutal winter finally morphs into spring. Cheers!
If you're wondering where the best place to catch the next game is, you may want to check out Leader Bar. With 22 flat-screen TVs throughout and an enormous bar, there's all but a bad seat in the house. The place is decorated with Brazilian Ipe wood throughout and features real elk antlers right above the fireplace. Yes, we said fireplace - spring temperatures may be fickle in the coming weeks, but that's not a worry at Leader. If it's a cold night for the big game, one of 14 beers on tap and that crackling fire are sure to warm you up.
