Cheap Booze, Food, and Bras at Jeremyâ€™s Ale House
How much is a quart? The answer is 32 ounces (thanks Google), but I’d like to officially tell the British â€œFuck youâ€ for sticking us with a shitty system of measurement. That being said, Jeremy’s sells quarts of Busch beer for $5 a pop. That’s good shit (the deal not the beer). If a quarter gallon of beer for five bucks isn’t enticing enough for you, maybe the lure of the dÃ©cor will be.
At Jeremy’s (that cheeky bastard) bras dangle from the ceiling while various people’s decorations (pen drawings) decorate the ceiling’s tiles. And there’s a whole wall devoted to firemen who lost their lives in 9/11. Bras and beer must make for good business because a fair amount of tourists come in here. I was there one time during the cold ass off season, when the door opened and literally 20 French people walked in. They just kept coming like they were exiting a clown car. But there are lots of locals too. I overheard one of them saying, â€œYeah, it took the Marine Corps. 3 years to get me out of a Japanese prison.â€ Maybe colorful is a good word for Jeremy’s. Colorful and cheap.
Besides the cheap beer, all food is under $10 (except the scallops) and most of it is around $5.95, which generally includes fries. You can get a bbq chicken sandwich with fries for $5.95. Don’t sleep on this equation: cheap quarts of beer + cheap food + drunk, possibly attractive foreigners + bras on the ceiling = a high probability of sloppy drunk sex where someone is talking dirty in a different languageâ€¦HOT! (Practice this: Voy a poner me pito en tu culo!) But of all this, my favorite thing might be that the graffiti in the bathroom said â€œLocal 52â€. Since when do unions tag shit up? Is there a graph writers union I didn’t know about?
Fun fact: Reagan was the only president to ever be head of a union (even it was the Screen Actor’s Guild). He also made serious efforts to break up organized labor during his presidency. What a fucking asshole.
