Come for the wings, stay for the good time at Caffrey's Tavern in Forked River
Steve Garcia, general manager for Caffrey's Tavern, has been with the establishment for more than 10 years - and it's not just because of its legendary 25-cent wing special.
"We are a tavern and a steakhouse, but we offer so much more than that," Garcia begins, on both the subject of Caffrey's menu options, as well as its entertainment and overall hospitality. "Nightlife is just one aspect of our business, but we always bring in acts who respond well with our crowd. We offer live music both Friday and Saturday nights, and also include special themes with our menu. Trivia night is Thursday, and that's always a great time, too."
Caffrey's is also a popular pick for any and all of your sports needs, as Garcia reveals that the bar is home to 25 TVs and plenty of channels to broadcast all the games.
"The action at Caffrey's really happens all day long, from the time we open, till the time we close," Garcia says.
Thursdays: Trivia Night, 8 p.m.
Friday, Feb. 17: Bullzeye, 9 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 18: Ken and Mary Sue, 9 p.m.
Mondays: Bingo Night.
Keep Caffrey's on your calendar for St. Patty's Day, as they are hosting a huge party with live music by Big Baby Ernie.

"Caffrey's is known for our eclectic menu." Garcia says.
