The Great Indoors

Fill your schedule with blissfully sheltered activity. Long johns not required.


The Best Bet
Peyton Manning is the only recognizable name playing a week from Sunday, and most Super Bowls are blowouts anyway. Still, you have to watch the game, so put the four hours to good use at Amsterdam Billiards (which has moved into the former Corner Billiards site). There are seventeen flat screens hung around the room and 26 full-size Brunswick tables (No. 20, in the corner, is the quietest). Drink, snack (it’s sandwiches and chips until owner-brothers Greg and Ethan Hunt refine the menu), and practice your three-rail bank shot while waiting for the best part of the Super Bowl: the commercials (from $5.50 per person, per hour; 110 E. 11th St., at Fourth Ave.; 212-496-8180).
