100 7th Ave South at Grove Street
If you’ve been “overserved” and need a little hair of the dog, head to Mercadito for their Ultimate Hangover Cure on Sunday. $25 gets you all you can drink (for two hours): House Sangria (white or red), fruit mimosas (strawberry is delish!) and Chelas (beer). You also get your choice of an entree from their extensive brunch list. Make sure to visit their two Avenue B locations!
316 Bowery (at Bleeker)
Restaurant week happens twice a year, but for the same $35 per person, the Sunday Nonya Dinner at Double Crown is an amazing deal. Feast on a tasting menu of various foods inspired by family-style banquet dining of Singapore and Malaysia, including yellowtail sashimi with cucumber, and grilled strip steak with black bean dressing. Two desserts are also part of the package! If you’d like to wash all of that delicious food down with a bottle of wine, two featured bottles are offered at $25 each.

Games aside, this place has really cheap drinks: $4.50 will get you a wide variety of top shelf drinks–uncommon in most cities–unheard of in Manhattan. $10 will get you a pitcher of Bud, Bud Lite & St. Pauli Girl during happy hour (12-5 M-Fri). College Football fans: $15 gets you two half-pound burgers deluxe and a pitcher of Bud or Bud Lite.
