After three rounds of notably controversial playoff games, the stage for Super Bowl XLIX is set. While substantial fan populations of New York have opted to block out the memories from the season (and in some cases, opted to not form them at all), New Yorkers will take any opportunity to congregate over food and beverage on what is often annually the most viewed television event in America and the second-largest day for food consumption.

House special combo ($7.50)
NYC has a million options for cheap Chinese -- one could find a decent bowl of noodles or dumplings on nearly any block in some neighborhoods. But few inexpensive noodles are as inspiring as those found at Hand Pull Noodle & Dumpling House (7201 18th Avenue, Brooklyn; 718-232-6191) in Bensonhurst, where you'll find an excellent assortment of fare for well under $10.

Brad Japhe for the Village Voice
The past decade has been marked by an explosion in the craft spirits industry. Small producers from every corner of the country now offer bold flavored booze to an expanding market of connoisseurs. Although they've added a diversity never before seen in the landscape, micro-producers are not without their drawbacks. Chief amongst those limitations is insufficient availability. Enter Caskers, a virtual outpost offering an unrivaled inventory of artisanal liquor. They'll deliver those elusive craft labels directly to your door, anywhere -- even Staten Island.

Roasted chickens, among the prepared foods at Jersey City's Carrino Provisions
When fifteen months ago Brooklyn chef Dale Talde, a former "Top Chef" contestant, and Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, stars of HGTV's "Kitchen Cousins," announced their plans to transform the former Jersey City police headquarters into Carrino Provisions (8 Erie Street, Jersey City; 551-222-6163), there was no Italian espresso bar next door, no pasta factory two blocks away. But for locals who, in recent years, have been limited in stocking up on storm provisions at Duane Reade and La Conga, one-stop shopping downtown not just for the foods you need but want couldn't have come at a better time.

The Dead Rabbit
This Sunday is National Irish Coffee Day (yes, that's a real thing), and the Dead Rabbit (30 Water Street, 646-422-7906) is celebrating in grand fashion.

Tørst
We're a little over a week away from our nation's most watched sporting event. No, it's not Olympic curling. Of course I'm speaking about the Super Bowl. Although few others are at this moment, surprisingly. Speaking about it, that is. Instead, everyone's talking about #InflateGate. And unless you don't own a TV, modem, and/or are Amish, you know that this is a developing scandal involving the allegedly under-inflated footballs used by the Patriots in their routing of the Colts during last week's conference championship.
