First Down First Anniversary Party


Editorial Review

After one year in business, Ballston's First Down sports bar has made its mark in the neighborhood. (For starters, its wings blow away Bailey's and the rest of the competition.) Expect to find college basketball on the bar's 18 large TV screens all day long, but there are a number of specials, too, including $1.50 domestic drafts from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., $6 Jaeger bombs and 29-cent wings until close. There will be drawings for door prizes every hour -- think T-shirts, pint glasses and gift certificates -- and the grand prize of a cruise for two will be given away at midnight. Perfect excuse to tuck into some wings, have a cold beer and play shuffleboard in the game room.
