Okay, Astros fans. The World Series starts this evening, with the Astros at Dodger Stadium, and it's your time to shine. Be the best fan possible and cash in on these great dining deals, from $2 queso to $5 hot-dog-and-beer combos, all week long. These restaurants will obviously be airing the games as well, and arriving early is a good idea to secure a seat.

Bosscat also will be selling Orbit Juice — an Astros-inspired take on a Paloma with tequila, citrus, bitters and grapefruit for $8 during the games; the games will be on all televisions "with the sound system booming," according to reps for the restaurant.

Watch the game inside on any of the eatery's five flatscreens or the brand-new 100-inch projection screen, or outdoors on the 3,500-square-foot patio.

Specials on the food menu inside include a half-priced game-day burger, and outside you'll find an Italian sausage station set up with $5 dogs, $3 draft beers and $5 craft canned beer. Plus, there's plenty of televisions that will be tuned to the World Series, seeing as this is a restaurant from Astros owner Jim Crane.
