This Chinese hot pot restaurant has locations all around the city, and it’s a great place to celebrate a birthday, especially because they’ll give you a free meal with proof of ID. If it’s not your birthday, rely on 99 Favor Taste whenever you get in the mood to eat an unconscionable amount of hot, broth-dipped meat and seafood on a random Tuesday night. There’s a small backyard at the New Dorp Lane spot, and they’re offering half-off cocktails and beer for $2.59 during weekday Happy Hour between 4pm and 7pm. Call 718-808-0099 to make a reservation.
