ARE YOU READY?: That question, in this case, is for some football. It's Monday night, and if you're looking for somewhere to watch the Patriots beat the Dolphins (hey, we never said the WYDT staff wasn't biased), head over to Damon's Tavern at 310 Prospect Ave. in Hartford. You'll get to hang out with the guys from ESPN Radio, and have a chance to win a prize pack valued at $250. The pigskin fun kicks off at 8 p.m.
