Happy Memorial Day weekend 2016!

Memorial Day weekend just may be our favorite weekend of the year here at Pub Crawl NYC.  Sometimes it’s appropriate for a quick trip out of town; other times, it’s great to stick around town and go on a NYC pub crawl or three.  As the weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer, the weather almost always delivers.  It was on this weekend long ago that we participated in our very first bar crawl and we’ve been a big fan of bar crawls ever since!  So, whether you’re staying in town or traveling for the long weekend, have a great time, stay safe and happy pub crawling!

May 23 marks the 228th anniversary of South Carolina statehood

Our NYC Bar of the Day: Mason Jar NYC, located at 43 East 30th Street in Manhattan’s Murray Hill.

May 11 marks the 158th anniversary of Minnesota’s statehood

Our NYC Bar of the Day: Lake Street, located at 706 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

April 30 marks the 204th anniversary of Louisiana statehood

Louisiana joined the Union on April 30, 1812.  For a Louisiana-focused NYC bar crawl, we suggest including Ninth Ward at 180 Second Avenue in Manhattan’s East Village, Delta Grill at 700 Ninth Avenue and Bourbon Street Bar & Grill at 346 W. 46th Street; both in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen.

Recently-opened Manhattan bars on our radar

A few new Manhattan bars have popped up on our radar and we hope to include these in upcoming NYC bar crawls.  Over in Alphabet City, Mockingbird at 25 Avenue B (below the Tex-Mex eatery Avenida) picks up where Idle Hands left off.  We gather that Mockingbird is more Speakeasy than beer bar.  A few miles north in Midtown East, Sutton Bar Room at 1074 First Avenue has opened in the same space as Sin Bin (the space was State of Grace prior to Sin Bin).  And, by Penn Station, Rock & Reilly (a Los Angeles import) has just opened in a rooftop location at the Marriott Hotel at 218 West 35th Street.  After we’ve had a chance to pub crawl to these spots, we will have a review of each in this space.  Stay tuned.

The repeal of U.S. Prohibition began on this date in 1933

On April 7, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act became law, allowing the manufacture and sale of beer that was up to 4% alcohol-by-volume. It wasn’t until December 5, 1933 that the full repeal of Prohibition was complete.

Happy Tartan Day 2016!

For a Scottish NYC bar crawl, we recommend the following Manhattan pubs: Caledonia, at 1609 Second Avenue; St. Andrew’s, at 140 W. 46th Street; Shoolbred’s, at 197 Second Avenue.  In Brooklyn, visit The Craic at 488 Driggs Ave and Duke of Montrose at 47 5th Ave.

Happy April!

April 1 has arrived and that means that the enjoyable, warmer NYC pub crawling weather is just around the corner! (Let’s hope so, anyway).
