Dive bar heh? Yeah, one of NYC's best for sure smile I actually like it there. You can meet every kind of soul and if you don't strike a conversation with a complete stranger within 10 minutes, you're doing it wrong lol

I know Danny and the bouncer from Rudy's.
I adore dive bars and this one I love because I'd always go there.

When I first recorded across the street I was killing time and thought the pig was so funny, I had to take a picture with it.

$8-12 pitchers of beer
great jukebox
chill vibe
duct tape on the seats wink

That's the thing... it's about just suggesting, but it's also supposed to be a permanent/occasional forum where people can adhoc suggest a dive bar and three or five people show up... because they are connected on FB via that group.

Then there is the bigger unofficial MM event, which will be organized from there, and then an official event announcement is done on the MM Event section and the link should be posted in this thread! (you should subscribe to this thread, so you won't get lost)...

This should work for the FB boycotting crowd... smile

LOL

I don't hate on FB, it just doesn't work for me lol
So yes, just tell me when and where and that's all I need.

IF I go, and you would want to travel MORE after, (to stay with me) I would love to have you stay with me and hang. You seem really chill and if you would want to shoot, I think we would make some great images. I literally only have a couch though and not a spare bedroom, and I have a roomate, who isnt around often that may be around or may not, OR if you felt brave enough, you could share my bed with me smile I have a boston terrier who thinks she is a lion as well. By train I am about an hour and fifteen from the city. Then a little of a drive. sad

that sounds awesome big_smile I've been meaning to go down there for a while, but since I can't drive (need to bus or train), or I had a booking but it pulled out, so I was never able to make it down! A couch and a boston terrier is fine (I tend to toss, turn, and kick a lot- so unless you're looking for bruises!). As the event gets close/finally gets finalized, we'll figure it out!

BTW there is really nice place in the village called The Red Lion.. Bleeker n Thompson. They have live bands during the week, nice atmosphere, table n food, plenty of boooze to make everyone happy.... 

I especially like the place becaue a friend's group plays there every so often, Wed nights, and they are a really hot band!

That strip in the village has a bunch of bars that are cool right next to each other and maybe there will be a cool band playing too

Arthur's Tavern is pretty cool for blues
