    At the Jersey Shore, most nightlife spots do their best to try and please everyone. Maybe they put the big game on and are mindful enough to also turn up the jukebox for those who prefer to listen to some music. In other words, they like to have all the bases covered. At Watering Hole Café in Mays Landing, they take the concept of covering the bases literally — as in they have their own softball field. It doesn’t matter how many flat screens you put in your bar, you just can’t beat that.

    1. Learn some American history from Tun Tavern. The original Tun Tavern dates back to pre-Revolutionary War days.

    The name “Bobby Dee’s Rock ’N Chair” implies two things — there will be rock music and there will be at least one seat. Not the most ambitious of aspirations, perhaps, but achievable ones. And indeed the bar went 2-for-2 on these promises. Not a bad start.

    1 The name is devised from one part wings, one part craft beer. Part one: The wings. Knowing that their customer would primarily consist of men, particularly football-watching men, the guys at Wingcraft in Tanger Outlet The Walk — brothers Nick and Antonio Ballias — developed a menu of 13 different styles of wings. Naturally, they have traditional, Buffalo blue and hot ’n honey style, but they also have finger-licking, lip-smacking wings such as roasted red pepper sriracha, chipotle BBQ and even Greek style — made with their mom’s own homemade tzatziki sauce. Order eight wings for only $8.99. Ask for extra napkins.


    Now that September is in full swing, you can be certain of a few things — the stores will become flooded with Halloween merchandise, the Eagles will begin another unsuccessful season of pro football and the Pitney Pub in Galloway will become flooded with Stockton students all looking for the perfect place to unwind for the night.

    1 For something daring, the Continental. If you love martinis, The Continental is the place for you. Boasting a menu of 24 variations, you can imbibe for as little as one person to as many as six, as their party shakers can serve and satisfy your whole table. Faves still include the Continental Cosmo, which is Tito’s, peach schnapps, pomegranate and lime juices; and the ever-popular Astronaut, comprised of Peachka and Tang and served in a Tang-rimmed glass. A $5 happy hour is from 4 to 7 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Drinks include select beers, wine and some cocktails. Munchies include a vegetarian hummus platter and buffalo chicken meatballs. This swanky bar has a real “Rat Pack feel,” and you’ll receive a $5 voucher for Caesars self-park garage. More info call 609-674-8300 or go to ContinentalAC.com.

    It’s a fact — hybrids are all the rage these days. Like any trend, after a while they can start to become annoying. Oh sure, you can try and place blame on your neighbor with the Prius or your sister-in-law who just HAD to have a $1,500 labradoodle, but why get yourself all worked up? It’s time to find the silver lining here — ladies and gentlemen, presenting Westy’s Irish Pub, an Irish pub with an outdoor deck and a great views. Now that is the type of hybrid anyone can get behind.


    1 Enjoy happy hour in the middle of the night. Boneyard in Atlantic City is open 24/7 and they have two happy hours each day.


    As the introductory days of autumn greet us with crisp breezes and football-packed Sundays, somehow those beach bars and sugary island drinks suddenly seem less appealing.
