    For many, a cold beer is an integral part of the spectator sports experience. But you needn't plant yourself in the upper deck to enjoy some suds. There are plenty of sports whose competitors customarily imbibe beverages suspiciously low in electrolytes. First and foremost among them is, of course, bowling. At 300 New York and Bowlmor Lanes, DJs spin music and the food goes far beyond rectangular pizza and chicken fingers (call the venues to ask when kids are allowed—it's adults-only some nights). Other popular nightlife-sports combinations include bocce at Park Slope's Union Hall and Skee-Ball—very, very serious, competitive Skee-Ball—at Full Circle Bar in Williamsburg. Of course, while drinking may be permitted, it's certainly far from a prerequisite to enjoy the action.
