The world is your oyster on Memorial Day weekend. Being an active and responsible human is swell and all, but a workless Monday also makes for a repercussion-free Sunday funday. Plus, you don’t have to pay full price with these all-day Sunday deals.

Sushi Tango

3001 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. • 612-822-7787 •

With Sunday specials running from noon until last call, this Calhoun Square sushi station is fit for extended bar shifts. Day-of-rest deals include $1 oysters, $3 rails, $3.50 taps and house wines, $4 bloodies, and discounted sake, sushi and apps. Snag a table on their overlooked patio and brag to your gone-fishin’ bros that you’re every bit as outdoorsy.

Social House

Holiday weekend or not, every Sunday is a “Social Sunday” at this Uptown fusion hangout. As long as the doors are open, take advantage of $2 sake, $3 beer and whiskey, and $4 mojitos. Whether you’re looking for a barhopping pit stop or a place to drop anchor, the Social House (which opens at 4 p.m.) is a parsimonious Sunday sanctuary.

O’Donovan’s Irish Pub

Wander into this downtown Minneapolis bar on Sunday and cheap beer awaits you. From open till close, O’Donovan’s business-meaning 20-ounce taps are $3-$4, while rails and house wines are just $3.
