On an jutting corner of Sheridan Square in the West Village, Riviera Cafe is the self-proclaimed spot for Red Sox and Patriot fans, so beware. The joint regularly airs sports of all kinds--horse races, golf, soccer, and occasionally lacrosse. The interior is much like a classic sports bar: Find a collection of odd tables, a wooden bar, sports memorabilia (in honor of their Boston favoritism). But if you just cant handle the sight of such things, the Cafe has two streetside dining areas in a flower-framed patio. Bar foods are here, along with $4 margaritas and late-night $3 Bud Lights. On the weekend, get your brunch fix with a pre-fixed menu that includes a boozy drink to help you ease into the day. But it's not just a weekend deal. They have daily specials, plus a happy hour that offers all of their beers, including the imports, for $3. Who wants to get sporty? --Lori Trigonis
