Where to Watch The Super Bowl for Really Cheap (Sometimes Free)
It's time for Super Bowl XLIII noshing plans to begin. Lucky for all you sports fans, these fine establishments will keep your pints and plates full while the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals battle this Sunday.
Dewey's Flatiron: As long as you don't bet too heavy on the game, you can drink and feed yourself fairly cheaply from 6 p.m. to the Super Bowl's final play. For $40, the all-you-can-drink-and-eat special includes domestic draft beer wings. 210 Fifth Avenue, Flatiron (b/n 25th and 26th Streets; map). 212-696-2337.
Stanton Public: Not usually a food spot, Stanton Public is treating their customers to a bar buffet of wings, fries, chicken fingers, and mozzarella sticks to go with some drink specials: $3 Bud Light bottles, $4 Yuengling pints, and a $5 PBR and whiskey shot combo. 17 Stanton Street, Lower East Side (b/n Bowery and Christie Streets; map); 212-677-5555.
Jeremy's Ale House: Watch the Super Bowl with a giant cup of Bud Light for $4 and balance it out with 25-cent wings and 50-cent hot dogs. 228 Front Street, South Street Sea Port (b/n Peck Slip and Beekman Streets; map); 212-964-3537.
Joshua Tree West: The busy Hell's Kitchen joint will be packed, and can you blame them with $10 pitchers of Miller and Bud, $5 apple-tinis, cosmos, and lemon drop martinis, and $4 bottles of American Ale? A "special Super Bowl menu" to absorb the liquids is also in the works. 366 W. 46th Street, Hell's Kitchen (b/n 8th and 9th Avenues; map); 212-489-1920.

South 4th: Watch the game and make your own bloody Mary ($5) and chase it with a first course of chicken wings, then the winning chili (from their chili cook-off contest last year) and for dessert, slice into the six-foot hero. 90 South 4th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (at Berry St, map). 718-218-7478.
