We Be Bartending Wednesday at Habibi

An ideal guest bartender is one with previous experience, charisma, and a rolodex of big spenders and social butterflies who are ‘œthe life of the party’. My college nickname was Tallie McShitty, but thanks to desperate bar owners, the prohibitive criterion have evaporated and I’ll be behind the bar with

NY: D**k slap Friday the 13th before it goes limp on St. Patty’s Day

It’s time to get over Friday the 13th. I mean, the blood, from the ‘œth’? Seriously? Not scary. Worse still is that the movie that launched the craze is anti-sex. Puritanical Mrs. Voorhees hasn’t forgiven two counselors who had blissful, transcendental sex while her son Jason drowned nearby. Years later,

Get depressed, maybe angry, then add drunk to the list

Ah, a collegiate night on the UWS. Somewhat responsible, at that, for a while at least. Columbia is showing ‘œShake Hands with the Devil’, a documentary following a visit to Rwanda by the UN appointed general who was left powerless to intervene in the massacre of ~800,000 in 1994. I’ll

Free Mini-Film Fest with Free Cupcakes

    Better late than never on this one.  I heard about it a while ago, but have been inundated with’other things.  Anyway, here’s the low down on a two-week celebration that is one-week old, fashionable late.   Things get convoluted when you think about Street Attack, an ‘œalternative marketing

Dress like an entitled brat and get a free meal

      I’m gonna pull a David Paterson here and out myself on this so no one else can do it to me: I watch Gossip Girl.  I have a valid explanation though; since my girlfriend likes the show, and we don’t get to spend that much time together, and I

Split Thy Brooklyn Skull Barley Wine Weekend

  My god barley wines have sweet names. They also pack a fucking punch. Hercules Strong Ale, 11.5% alc./volume, was the first I ever tried. The bartender said he wasn’t allowed to serve me more than two and this was on Boston’s shitty-ass Lansdowne Street where people are absolutely wasted

Classy Whiskey Tasting Friday 6-8

  I’ve mentioned Dooley’s, that toffee vodka liqueur, a number of times and I’ll mention her again: ‘œTake your ubiquitous open bars and fuck off’. That’s because this Friday I’ll be upgrading to small batch bourbon whiskey distilled right here in Nueve York. Yea, when the clock strikes 8:01 and
