Finally, we no longer have to dread Sunday night and hate every minute of Monday. With the 2015 NFL season underway, New York's bars and restaurants are introducing new food-and-drink deals for fans of all teams (except maybe you, Patriots). From all-you-can-eat tacos to forty-buck beer towers, check out six awesome ways to make that touchdown taste even better.
Atwood Kitchen & Bar Room: This bi-level gastropub has five TVs upstairs and three downstairs. Take note, they'll only be turning on sound for New York games, so home fans can nosh on a $14 burger, fries and draft beer every Monday night.
Boulton & Watt: On weekends, soak up $5 brunch cocktails like mimosas, sangrias and bloody Mary's till 4pm while catching the game on one of seven screens. Big groups can reserve a special booth with a private flat-screen TV and two in-table beer taps. Feeling salty about losing? Down a briny housemade pickleback for just $9.
Bounce Sporting Club: Catch Monday games on 30 HD TVs at this sports bar and load up with an "I Got Five on It" special offered from 5 to 7pm—including $5 beer, wine, well drinks, sangria and bar snacks (mac n' cheese bars, pigs in a pretzel). On weekends during football season, Bounce's Sunday Fundays also feature a rotating lineup of DJ's spinning live party tunes.
Cascabel Taqueria: Upper East Siders can head to this taco standby with four TVs for the Monday night $25 all-you-can-eat buffet that comes with two hours of limitless tacos, wings, Dos XX lager and house sangria. During weekend games, guzzle $15 bottomless brunch from 11am to 4:30pm.
The Grayson: There are a whopping 40 TVs at this Houston Street watering hole—offering $2 sliders, $4 Bud and Coors Light and $5 fireball shots during Monday night games. For all games, order a gut-sticking Grayson Dream Team (loaded tots, 36 wings, on domestic beer tower) for $70 or $40 Bud Light and Coors beer towers ($25 more for premium drafts).
Sweetwater Social: Stay happy all night on Monday at this basement booze den, offering $5 drafts, $8 wines and a $10 cocktail of the day until close. Don't wanna wait till Monday? Sunday evening games come with a $20 kitchen-sink buffet (family-style buffet dinner and one draft of beer). They'll be screening every showdown on their four TVs, but feel free to sneak in a round of foosball during downtime.
