1 Cent Drinks at Ellis Bar in Park Slope 9-10pm

Sometimes when I’m eating or drinking free things  I feel a slight prick of guilt.  Usually, it’s nothing a quick cognitive pummeling can’t beat into submission.   I’m not talking about big catered events or hand outs from big brand  sponsors.  Hell, I’ll water the plants with Stoli O (not really, that would be wasteful and no one likes having to deal with drunk plant drama),  but when a little operation is trying to wrangle in customers it is categorically different.


Ellis Bar
has the optimal solution with “1 Cent” Fridays.   The monetary transaction satisfies my conscience, the expense in manageable, and  Ben Franklin gets some paraphrase-iffic love.

Tonight, according to FreeNYC, it’s tequila, vodka shots, and something called a Jack Rabbit.  Penny drinks only last from 9-10 pm.
Ellis Bar is @ 627 5th Ave in Park Slope

    Hi Fred, the nice folks there told me that it is just for the month of May, which sounds binge-inducing to me. Every Friday, 9-10. They choose a different shot and drink each week. Enjoy, and try to puke OUTSIDE.
    They also have other sweet deals the rest of the week. Check out their website and keep checking back here because I’ll be writing about those and others soon.
