Heading to Brooklyn’s best big venue for a thrilling game or concert? We’ve got your dinner and drinks plan set!

EAT: At Brooklyn’s Best Spot for a Mediterranean Feast

The rich recipes that make up Sofreh’s menu are only hefty in theory. From house-made yogurt dips to fresh feta served alongside a pile of seasonal herbs, every dish that comes out of the kitchen is both light and true to its Persian roots. 75 St. Mark’s Avenue, Prospect Heights

DO: Catch Sports, Concerts, and Much More at Barclays Center

The elegantly designed events space dominating the heart of Brooklyn is home to everything from the biggest pop music concerts to WWE brawls to the Nets. If you’re still hungry, we recommend the arancini from Boomer and Carton Kitchen at section 17 on the main concourse. 620 Atlantic Avenue, Prospect Heights

DRINK: A Simply Excellent Cocktail (or Two) at Rose’s

Order the Baby’s on Fire, described on the menu as a  “spicy, smoky ginger margarita” (we describe it as “delicious”), and then, on warm days, head into the beautiful backyard and bliss out while developing new offensive strategies for the Nets. 295 Flatbush Avenue, Prospect Heights
