SuperMeetup NYC

Recommended Posts

It is one of the only legitimate dives in that part of the village, though. Everything's a 'dive' these days. Don't buy it.

this is true... if your spot doesn't have scenes like a bartender escorting a barfly into a taxi before 3pm because she can't stay on their barstool, it ain't a dive

there's a great one in chelsea on 7th ave around the corner from the met pavilion, they still have a payphone booth inside and i think the fanciest beer they have on tap is miller high life

But I'll be fucked if I'm gonna pay $5 for a beer that's room temperature.

shot of Jim and a PBR for 5 is ok by me, and about the only time I'll be drinking pabst. otherwise, it's bud bottles and wild turkey neat. it's not really a 'what's on-tap?' kind of bar.

speaking of -- brooklyn dives? anyone fuck with o'connors in the slope?

Wait what? Where can you find ANY drink in new york for $3? I cant even buy a fucking tall can at the corner store for $3. Even if I know the bartender and I'm drinking for free, I'll probably tip $2 or $3 just to be nice.

hahahah

$2 beers and $3 mixed drinks, I always tip at the end of the night, so it's like $4-$6 additional dollars.

damn, you are fucking cheap.

blue & gold has $4 single malt. that has to be one of the better deals around here. i never drink pbr so i don't care. i rather pay a $1 more and get a beer with taste.

Lucy's is my dive of choice. also helps that they make us mixed drinks with only vodka in them.

when I have a steady income or have a trustfund to rely on (who knows when either of those things will happen), then I'll be a little less stingy. only then.

I'm good friends with the bartender so I'll give her money at the end of the night, I open a tab most times I'm there anyways. If I'm at a bar that I don't frequent I do tip as I go.

oh wow. I went to lucys for my first time last night because I was with like 10 underaged people and ironically enough the girl who was 30 didnt bring her ID with her because shes from France where you dont need to. So lucys was the only spot with no bouncer, etc. Drinks were pretty cheap, met lucy. Shitty interior, generally unattractive crowd, got hit on by this really creepy gay dude for like an hour, but it was actually really fun.

A little off topic, I'm traveling to NY in a few days. Coming from Nor Cal and never have experienced an East Coast winter, how layered up would one need to be? We talking about thermals and long johns here or just a nice parka, sweater and a scarf?

depends what youre tolerance for cold weather is like, if i were you id keep the thermals and long johns just in case, rather be on the warm side than shivering....but currently i think a parka, sweater scarf is fine, only gonna get colder though

depends on whether it stays cold too. Winter's been on the weak side up until recently. who knows if it'll stay cold like it has been for the last couple days.
