I thought $1 beers in NYC were just a myth. Something I had just heard about but never actually seen…until this past week when I found myself wandering around in the upper east side. Thursday nights at The Brews Brothers…$1 beers. For the first time in NYC, I had a hard time meeting the minimum credit card tab required to close my card out. $10 = 10 beers…wth! I needed to go to work the next day. So what do you do when you find yourself in such a situation, start buying beers for other people. Oh, another option is to keep your tab open, go have some good Italian food at Tony’s Di Napoli, and then return for some more beers.
On a side note, that part of the upper east side seemed to be quite a happening area. I thought upper east side = what I had seen on the TV show ‘Gossip Girl’ (Yes yes, I have watched a couple of episodes of the Gossip girl….so sue me!). But the area around 82nd St and 2nd Ave has a ton to do, with lots of restaurants and bars with a ton of options. I’ll definitely be going there again some time soon.
