December 5, 2016 marks the 83rd anniversary of the end of U.S. Prohibition. On this date in 1933, Utah became the 36th U.S. state to ratify the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution (achieving the required 75% of states to approve the amendment). This ratification overturned the 18th Amendment, which outlawed alcohol in the United States. So, how will you be marking the anniversary today, with a pub crawl in NYC perhaps? Leave us a comment to let us know!
Our NYC bar of the Day: Windy City Ale House, located at 7915 Third Avenue in Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge.
Since most bars are small businesses, we recommend a pub crawl today as a way to mark the occasion!
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Any of the three Manhattan locations of Brother Jimmy’s, a classic NYC spot for viewing North Carolina college sports and enjoying North Carolina BBQ.
Located at 111 E. 29th Street in Manhattan’s Murray Hill, Cannibal Liquor House is a craft cocktail spot from the same owner’s as next door’s The Cannibal Beer & Butcher. At $14 apiece, the drinks are fairly reasonable these days for Manhattan craft cocktail bars. Cannibal Liquor House also has a decent wine and beer selection. We found the staff here to be friendly. This spot is definitely worth a stop on your next Murray Hill NYC bar crawl.
