There are lots of places to watch sports on the Upper West Side, but most of them are either random pubs that show replays of Yankees games with subtitles, or they’re bright college bars that smell like spilled light beer. Blondies is an exception. There are a bunch of tables you can reserve ahead of time, TVs playing the biggest games with volume, and some of the best buffalo wings in the city.
