Free Food at Croxley’s Abbey Thursday and Friday

After writing this blog for almost 7 years, I’m amazed when I’m stumped by a free food at a bar deal. And last night I stumbled across Croxley’s Abbey while on the web. Located on Grand between Wythe and Kent in Williamsburg, according to Time Out New York, there’s free mussels, wings and boneless […]

Last week I told you about some of the great happy hour deals at Dempsey’s Pub in the East Village, on 2nd Ave and East 4th Street. Here’s another deal that they have going on

all night Thursday. Swing in for $1 fish tacos all night long. […]

I’m Back! Plus Happy Hour Deals at Dempsey’s!

So if you have been checking this blog for updates and realized there haven’t been any…I’m sorry! I got married a few weeks back and then went on my honeymoon, hence the lack of posts. Normally when I go away, I post a bunch in advance, but between wedding planning and finishing work, there […]

My Favorite Bar is Closing – Check Out The Wharf This Weekend

When I was 22, I was introduced to The Wharf – a bar on 39th and 3rd. Every few weeks, my coworkers and I would trek over from 32nd and Park. We went for the discounted beers (two beers on special all night long) and for the nachos. The nachos are fantastic – for years, […]

Revisiting the Review: Flip Night at Flight 151!

Since it is Tuesday, just wanted to remind you of my favorite deal in the city on Tuesday nights: Flip Night. Visit Flight 151 on 8th Ave between 17th and 18th Street, and starting at 7pm, you’ll flip a coin at the bar prior to ordering a drink. Call heads or tails, guess right, […]

$2.50 Beers at the Bravest? Yes, Please

One of my favorite bars hands down is the Bravest located on 38th and 2nd.  In fact, I’ve spent my last two Fridays there and I’ve been pretty impressed that we were able to score a table on both occasions.

I like the Bravest because beers are cheap.  No matter what time of day or […]

Revisiting the Review: Daytime Drinking at Down the Hatch

Last weekend, I organized a group of about 30 of my friends and we headed to Down the Hatch down in the West Village for a day of drinking.  Why do we day drink at Down the Hatch? Well the deal is phenomenal – $21 gets you 3 pitchers of beer and all […]

Sometimes I Need to Just Dance at Bowery Electric

Ask Caryn, and she’ll probably give you a different review of this spot, but if I need to dance it out, the first place I’m going is Bowery Electric.

Frankly, it has everything I hate – a line to get in, it’s crowded and there’s a special section that is the best spot in […]

A Positively Peculier Pub

Earlier this summer a few of us wanted to get together for some drinks but we were getting antsy to try something new. A little digging online for good beers at good prices brought us to Peculier Pub in the Village.

A favorite among beer enthusiasts (and NYU students apparently, so the summer was […]

Decent Meal at Mason Jar

The other night, a couple of my girlfriends (including Caryn) and I were looking to get dinner together in Murray Hill.  We thought we’d try Mason Jar, mainly because we were able to get a $25 restaurant.com gift certificate there for $4.50 with a coupon code (so each of would spend $1, and get […]
