might I suggest the bar in the theater UNDER St. Marks on January 15th at 1030pm, when the blasphemous and heralded comedy/music troupe God Tastes Like Chicken takes the stage and dances on Jerry Falwell's grave. The beer is cheap. Admission is free for people who use the password "only sheep need a shepherd," and it is a group of people committed to attacking bigotry, fairy tales, and creepy old white men in dresses oppressing women and alter boys. Just a thought, but a reasonable one.
I live in South Salem (Westchester) and work in NYC. I rarely turn down an excuse to grab some brews, and I think hanging out in a NYC bar after work with some fellow heathens would be great. Thursdays / Fridays in and around the Wall St. area would be best for me but when it comes to settling down for a pint or two of (good) beer I can be very flexible.
