Welcome to the 2019 NFL Football season. Whether you are a diehard football fanatic or are just in it for socializing and snacks, football season brings swarms of people to area bars in Monmouth and Ocean counties to cheer on their favorite teams with their closest friends. And of course, football and food go hand-in-hand with appetizers galore being served alongside the game kickoff.
