A review of Death Ave in Manhattan’s Chelsea

Located at 315 10th Avenue in Manhattan’s Chelsea (and just a few blocks south of the Hudson Yards development), Death Ave is a Greek restaurant that also brews its own beer.  We had been waiting over two years for the home brews to start flowing!  Finally, on a recent afternoon NYC pub crawl along 10th Avenue we stopped into the main restaurant (the recently-opened tap room is now also open for lunch on most days) for a few beers. Our samplings included the Kolsch and Pale Ale.  Death Ave also offered a few Belgian-style ales.  The braised lamb sandwich is outstanding!

Our thoughts on Labor Day 2017

Because it marks the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day always brings a touch of sadness to us at Pub Crawl NYC.  Summer in NYC offers many opportunities of beautiful weather for NYC pub crawls and other city exploration.  September is still a good weather month in NYC and, if lucky, October can be as well.  But, those two months just aren’t quite the same as June, July and August.  Either way, we look forward to many more NYC bar crawls in the months ahead.  Happy Autumn!

Happy Birthday to New York State!

It was 229 years ago on this date that New York State ratified the United States Constitution, becoming the 11th state to do so.  Therefore, July 26th is a great day to drink some New York State beer and eat some New York State food.  We wish Union Square’s Little Town NYC were still around, but alas, that spot is no more.  So, we suggest a visit to Manhattan’s Local & Vine, located at 282 Hudson Street in West Soho.
