NEW YORK & $3 BEER

PBR

 
New York and the $3.00 PBR, Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer has been a God-Send to many New Yorkers. As you all know, the US Economy has been in the Shitter for the past 5  years or so.
Many people are out of work, and many who are working, are taking home Half-as-Much Money or more of what they used to make. People have had to buckle down and give up or curb many things they enjoyed previous to the current state of our economy, which is in almost a Depression Era State.
Yes, everybody says that we are not in a Depression, we're in a recession. Those are the Rich and Well-Off, The 1%-ers  talking. To many, the state of our Union and their feelings are of Depression.
So, because of the Terrible State of our Economy you have given up eating out 3 times a week, you buy less clothes, spend less on Entertainment and any number of things. You haven't had a vacation in the past two years, maybe more. You've given up a lot. We all have.
Now when it comes to socializing, going out for a few Beers or Cocktails with some friends, you've had to cut back on that too. But hey, you gotta draw a line somewhere, and everyone is entitled to a few drinks to unwind every now and then, and to be with friends. Yes times are bad, people are hurting, you need your friends more than ever. And having a few Beers or Drinks is one of the most common adult ways to do so. It's natural and part of everyday life. You should be able to have two or three drinks or beers and not have to spend a small fortune doing so. You should be able to have 2 beers for about $10 including tip, and about $16 for tow drinks including tip. That's reasonable. That's what most people pay around America, and even less. But we don't live in America, we live in the greatest City in The World, New York, and Cocktails and Beers here can be oh-so-dear. "Expensive!" Expensive as Hell, "Ridiculously Expensive." It's absurd and outrageous, with many places thinking it's normal and OK to charge $16.00 or more for a measly little Cocktail made by a friggin so-called "Mixologist." Ha!  It's not OK, what's a person to do? So yes, we live in New York, and having a couple cocktails here can be a costly undertaking.. What is a Poor Working Guy or Working Girl to do??? Well Boys and Girls, let's Thank God for that great thing of wonder and the Bars and establishments who so graciously and kindly serve it, The $3.00 PBR, That's right, a $3.oo Beer in The Land of The Over-Priced $16.00 Cocktail, Manhattan, New York, NY..... It's quite Sad, Greedy too, not to mention "Ridiculous Ludicrous and Insane."
Yes, Thank God and let's thank the Kind-Hearted proprietors who serve $3.00 PBR'S or any Beer for just $3 or $4 in a New York Bar. You are doing your fellow man a public service and we thank you for that. Whoever you are, you are to be commended, and Shame-On-You, all those places that serve $14 PLUS Cocktails. "RIP-OFF" !!! Wish the masses would Boycott these places and patronize places like Blue & Gold Bar, 7B, and anyplace who has a heart. Bars that serve 3 and 4 Dollar Beers.
I just have to say, it's great to go to a place like Blue and Gold Bar on East 7th Street and know that you can have 3 or 4 Beers for just $12 to $16, accounting for a Buck a Pop for the Barkeep. Now that's pretty good. I have had the best times hanging at Blue & Gold with some friends. You sit at the Bar or get into a nice comfy booth, drink your Beers ($3 PBR'S), relax, listen to the Music, Chit Chat, and just enjoy, and it's not going to cost you The Shirt Off Your Back.
Yes, you can have 4 Beers, tip included for the price of 1 Rip-Off Drink at one of those Rip-Off Joints. And if you are Dumb enough to have four drinks in one of those places, guess what it's going to cost you? About $75 my friend.
Well, do the Math, and if you can afford $75 for only 4 drinks, God Bless You. And if you can't, you've got an alternative. Right, your local $3.00 PBR Joint. They're a God-Send.

PLACES To GET A $3.00 PBR in NEW YORK

BLUE & GOLD BAR in the East Village, on East 7th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Blue & Gold has long been a favorite of mine ever since I lived in the East Village from 1982 to 1994. It's just a cool ol normal old style bar with a pool table, standard 50's 60's Bar Decor, and Best-of-All $3.oo PBR'S and $6.00 Cocktails. I love it.

7B   a.k.a. The Horseshoe Bar, also in the East Village, a bastion of cheap and fare prices in Manhattan and Land of The $3.00 PBR and other $3 and $4 Beers.  7B  is located on the corner of Avenue B at 7th Street, hence the name "7B"  ... The nickname Horseshoe Bar comes from the shape and dimensions of the bar, "Horseshoe Shaped." The bar has been the setting of numerous movie shoots, including the scene in Godfather II when Frankie Pantangeli (Frankie 5 Angels) goes to this bar for a meeting with the Rosato Brothers, and Danny Aiello raps a Piano-Wire around his neck. A scene from Crocodile Dundee and other movies as well ....  But Best of all, at 7B they serve $3.00 Beers, cheap drinks, and they have a photo and sell Potato Chips and Pretzels which practically no bars in Manhattan ever do any more. And this is a good thing when you get the munchies from the Beer. Glory Hallelujah, thank God for 7B ..

TWINKIES ARE COMING






Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys & Girls Our Beloved TWINKIES Are Coming Back .. It hasn't been easy, living without our Favorite Sweet Snack Treat The "Twinkie" Twinkies ... No, Millions of Twinkie Lovers all over America were Crushed in November 2012 when the last beloved Cream Filled Sponge Cake Filled with Cream rolled off the line, and our Beloved TWINKIES were gone. They lasted on the shelves for a couple days, many hoarded whatever they could get their hands on. Boxes were selling on Ebay for hundreds of dollars and our beloved Twinkies were gone, No more. We were told it was temporary. Hostess went bankrupt and shut the company down, but they would be selling the beloved brand off. In comes Billionaire Dean Metropoulos, head of Metroupoulas Co., a company that has revived such icon brands as; Aunt Jemima, Bumblebee Tuna, Vlasik Pickes, and the much loved PBR Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. And I personally would like to "Thank" Mr. Metropoulos for doing these things, especially making Pabst strong and bring back our sorely missed and oh so loved Twinkies. I'd love to shake Mr. Metropoulos's hand and give him a great big hug, that's how happy I am. Millions of others too.
Yes our beloved Twinkies are coming back. They will be back this Summer of 2013, around mid July is the ear-marked Joyous Day for The Return of The TWINKIES ... Can The McRib be far behind? Recent history tell us the Mcrib should return, some time in the Fall of 2013, that's two joyous days to look forward to.
Want a great day out. Once the McRib comes back this fall, and Twinkies have already been on the shelves for months. Go to you local store and pick up a box of Twinkies. Hold on to them for dare life and make your way over to the nearest McDonalds. Get yourself a tasty McRib or two, savor and enjoy. What's not to love? Then for dessert, pull out a pack of Twinkies for dessert, and again, Enjoy! Then make your way to the nearest pub or bar that serves America's favorite beer, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and again savor and Enjoy! If you live in New York as I, where the price of beers or cocktails can be insanely high depending on the joint you go to, make sure you go and get a $3.00 PBR, or $4 or $5 the most, and yes, enjoy. Basta!

SHITTY MUSIC OVER-PRICED COCKTAILS & CABLE BILLS "WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO" ???




A COUPLE OVER-PRICED COCKTAILS
PEGU CLUB
HOUSTON STREET, NEW YORK, NY



What is going on people? What has happened to this world, to New York? What has happened to Music, they don't make any today. "No Good Music, nothing but trash for music for the past 15 years or so. What happened to all the Great Pop, Rock, and R&B Music they "Used to Make." Why did they stop making great music and decide to create Shit like they make today, what they so wrongfully call music. It's just a bunch of "Rap Crap" and other types of Garbage Noise that many "Think" is music.
    When did people start paying for Television, so much anyway. It's ridiculous. I know a guy who is paying over $300 dollars for his internet and Cable TV. I told him that that was ridiculous and absurd. I told him, do you realize that you're going to pay $33,000 in ten years time for your internet and TV ... He was stunned. He never thought about it. I do. I'm pretty good at math and great at making calculations of monthly bills and what a Cel Phone, internet, Cable TV, and rent will cost you a Year, 5 Year, and 10 Years. This guy never did that. He just thought in terms of 1 month, not what it cost in 5 or 10 years time. And when I told him the 10 year cost which I figure out in my head in about 10 seconds. He was stunned! As for me, I "Cut The Cable" 2 1/2 years ago. I've saved $2,500 since than, and that will double to $5,000 in 2-and-half more years. But that's not the end of it. At the same time, I changed my 
Cel Phone service and save $300 a year, so in this five years time I will have saved $6,500 by cutting the cable which I hated and got tired of paying that absurdly high bill. And mine was just $135 a month, not $33o .. Hold on now. That's not the end. I just signed a new Hot Spot Internet deal which will save me$200 a year, so by the time the 5 years rolls around, I will have save $7,000 ... Yes $7,000 ... And I do save it ...

And now, to this other insane matter, and absurd thing that has happened and people just except it. The insane practice of Overpriced Cocktails ... When did this happen? Well I can sort of pin point it. It was a few years ago. Well about 10 or 12 years already I guess. Dam, "time Flies." It was when people started opening hipper cocktail lounges and Bartenders really started experimenting, reading and researching old Bar Books, making great old drinks, obscure ones, and creating new ones. This was good, all except for one bad aspect, and a travesty to the spirit of good drinking. And that is, I'm sure you can guess by now, the insane practice of charging $16.00 or more for cocktails that are gone in about 3 sips. This is insane. And sadly now it is th norm in many places around New York, Bars, Cocktail Lounges, and restaurants, the insane, thoughtless, inconsiderate, and greedy practice of $16.00 and up cocktails. Hey, even $14.00 cocktails is insane and grossly overpriced. What's a person to do. Don't go you say. Yeah, that would be good, well if we had more of a choice, but it seems like 85% or more of the drinking establishments in New York have the inflated overpriced cocktails and beers. Yes, beer too. With $8, 9, and even $10 Beers. So if you were in a place that had $8 beers, and you wanted to have 3, it would cost you almost $30 for 3 measly beers, with tip. And forget about 3 Cocktails made by the so-called Mixologist. You're talking $55 to $60 for 3 friggin drinks. You gotta agree friends, "That's Insane."


    Many people are out of work, and many who are working, are taking home Half-as-Much Money or more of what they used to make. People have had to buckle down and give up or curb many things they enjoyed previous to the current state of our economy, which is in almost a Depression Era State.
     Yes, everybody says that we are not in a Depression, we're in a recession. Those are the Rich and Well-Off, The 1%-ers  talking. To many, the state of our Union and their feelings are of Depression.
   So the practice of overpriced $16 drinks at many of New York's Cocktail Lounges, bars, and restaurants is a ridiculous crushing blow that knocks socializing out of whack. You should be able to have 2 beers for about $10 including tip, and about $16 for tow drinks including tip. That's reasonable. That's what most people pay around America, and even less. But we don't live in America, we live in the greatest City in The World, New York, and Cocktails and Beers here can be oh-so-dear. "Expensive!" Expensive as Hell, "Ridiculously Expensive." It's absurd and outrageous, with many places thinking it's normal and OK to charge $16.00 or more for a measly little Cocktail made by a friggin so-called "Mixoligist." Ha! It's not OK, what's a person to do?
So yes, we live in New York, and having a couple cocktails here can be a costly undertaking.. What is a Poor Working Guy or Working Girl to do???
   Yes. you could choose not to go to these places. But there's another point. You should be able to go. You shouldn't be cut out because your not a 1%-er, that you don't make an upseen amount of money, that you make an average salary (or less) and these places should be affordable to someone making an average weekly income, but you can't. Why? "Fuckin ^16 Cocktails" that's why! Grossly insane "Over-Priced Cocktails" that only the Rich can really afford, or someone who's dumb enough to "throw away their money" and live above their means. Yes, they could buy the drink, they have the money, but anyone making $50,000 a year or less, really these $16 drinks are above your means. You could actually buy them, but it doesn't make sense. You should not spend $55 to $60 on 3 measly "Over-Contrived Overpriced Mixologists Concoction," it's Ludicrous! Are you dumb? I hope not. Many people are, the kind of people who will pay a $300 plus internet Cable Bill and throw away $30,000, for something you can get free, or if not free, far less than $30,000 .... Now that's Dumb!!!! And that's why businesses take advantage of people. They're Dumb ....

NEW YORK and THE $3.00 PBR "PABST BLUE RIBBON BEER"

.  


PABST BLUE RIBBON BEER

New York & The $3 PBR

"IT STILL EXISTS" !!!! 2022


New York and the $3.00 PBR, Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer has been a God-Send to many New Yorkers. As you all know, the US Economy has been in the Shitter for the past 5  years or so.
Many people are out of work, and many who are working, are taking home Half-as-Much Money or more of what they used to make. People have had to buckle down and give up or curb many things they enjoyed previous to the current state of our economy, which is in almost a Depression Era State.
Yes, everybody says that we are not in a Depression, we're in a recession. Those are the Rich and Well-Off, The 1%-ers  talking. To many, the state of our Union and their feelings are of Depression.
So, because of the Terrible State of our Economy you have given up eating out 3 times a week, you buy less clothes, spend less on Entertainment and any number of things. You haven't had a vacation in the past two years, maybe more. You've given up a lot. We all have.
Now when it comes to socializing, going out for a few Beers or Cocktails with some friends, you've had to cut back on that too. But hey, you gotta draw a line somewhere, and everyone is entitled to a few drinks to unwind every now and then, and to be with friends. Yes times are bad, people are hurting, you need your friends more than ever. And having a few Beers or Drinks is one of the most common adult ways to do so. It's natural and part of everyday life. You should be able to have two or three drinks or beers and not have to spend a small fortune doing so. You should be able to have 2 beers for about $10 including tip, and about $16 for tow drinks including tip. That's reasonable. That's what most people pay around America, and even less. But we don't live in America, we live in the greatest City in The World, New York, and Cocktails and Beers here can be oh-so-dear. "Expensive!" Expensive as Hell, "Ridiculously Expensive." It's absurd and outrageous, with many places thinking it's normal and OK to charge $16.00 or more for a measly little Cocktail made by a friggin so-called "Mixologist." Ha!  It's not OK, what's a person to do? So yes, we live in New York, and having a couple cocktails here can be a costly undertaking.. What is a Poor Working Guy or Working Girl to do??? Well Boys and Girls, let's Thank God for that great thing of wonder and the Bars and establishments who so graciously and kindly serve it, The $3.00 PBR, That's right, a $3.oo Beer in The Land of The Over-Priced $16.00 Cocktail, Manhattan, New York, NY..... It's quite Sad, Greedy too, not to mention "Ridiculous Ludicrous and Insane."
Yes, Thank God and let's thank the Kind-Hearted proprietors who serve $3.00 PBR'S or any Beer for just $3 or $4 in a New York Bar. You are doing your fellow man a public service and we thank you for that. Whoever you are, you are to be commended, and Shame-On-You, all those places that serve $14 PLUS Cocktails. "RIP-OFF" !!! Wish the masses would Boycott these places and patronize places like Blue & Gold Bar, 7B, and anyplace who has a heart. Bars that serve 3 and 4 Dollar Beers.
I just have to say, it's great to go to a place like Blue and Gold Bar on East 7th Street and know that you can have 3 or 4 Beers for just $12 to $16, accounting for a Buck a Pop for the Barkeep. Now that's pretty good. I have had the best times hanging at Blue & Gold with some friends. You sit at the Bar or get into a nice comfy booth, drink your Beers ($3 PBR'S), relax, listen to the Music, Chit Chat, and just enjoy, and it's not going to cost you The Shirt Off Your Back.
Yes, you can have 4 Beers, tip included for the price of 1 Rip-Off Drink at one of those Rip-Off Joints. And if you are Dumb enough to have four drinks in one of those places, guess what it's going to cost you? About $75 my friend.

Well, do the Math, and if you can afford $75 for only 4 drinks, God Bless You. And if you can't, you've got an alternative. Right, your local $3.00 PBR Joint. They're a God-Send.

PLACES To GET A $3.00 PBR in NEW YORK

BLUE & GOLD BAR in the East Village, on East 7th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Blue & Gold has long been a favorite of mine ever since I lived in the East Village from 1982 to 1994. It's just a cool ol normal old style bar with a pool table, standard 50's 60's Bar Decor, and Best-of-All $3.oo PBR'S and $6.00 Cocktails. I love it.

7B   a.k.a. The Horseshoe Bar, also in the East Village, a bastion of cheap and fare prices in Manhattan and Land of The $3.00 PBR and other $3 and $4 Beers.  7B  is located on the corner of Avenue B at 7th Street, hence the name "7B"  ... The nickname Horseshoe Bar comes from the shape and dimensions of the bar, "Horseshoe Shaped." The bar has been the setting of numerous movie shoots, including the scene in Godfather II when Frankie Pantangeli (Frankie 5 Angels) goes to this bar for a meeting with the Rosato Brothers, and Danny Aiello raps a Piano-Wire around his neck. A scene from Crocodile Dundee and other movies as well ....  But Best of all, at 7B they serve $3.00 Beers, cheap drinks, and they have a photo and sell Potato Chips and Pretzels which practically no bars in Manhattan ever do any more. And this is a good thing when you get the munchies from the Beer. Glory Hallelujah, thank God for 7B ..

LUCY

"LUCY'S BAR"

135 AVENUE A  NY NY



Lucy’s Bar is the most aptly named bar in New York. For Lucy—the quiet and small and sweetly proper Polish owner with the well-coifed gray hair and floral blouses—is who you’ll see when you go there, and Lucy is the one who will serve you. If there are other employees, they’ve hidden themselves somewhere in the back.

Though Lucy’s is undeniably a dive (and one of the last in the neighborhood), it feels more like your aunt’s aging rec room, a place where you’d never think of disrespecting the house’s hospitality. It’s also one of the last vestiges of the Polish community that was once made up a significant part of the East Village’s character.

Ludwika “Lucy” Mickevicius moved from Poland to New York in the late 1970s and soon got a job at Blanche’s, a bar on St. Mark’s Place run by another Polish woman. She became such a fixture that people began to think of the bar as Lucy’s, and, when Blanche retired, she sold the place—by then located on Avenue A—to her bartender.

Lucy’s life doesn’t range much further than the twin poles of her joint and Poland, which she visits regularly, shutting up the tavern at a moment’s notice and disappearing for weeks at a time. Most nights, she stations herself at the far end of the bar near the ancient cash register. (It’s cash only here.) One recent evening, the Halloween balloons hadn’t yet been taken down. Then again, assorted Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations were already out. Maybe none of the decorations are ever packed up?

Lucy doesn’t budge much behind the bar, but she keeps herself busy for a woman in her mid-70s. She will draw you a pint or a glass of tequila. And, if she likes you, she might pour you a shot of żubrówka, a Polish bison grass vodka, on the house. When the place gets stuffy, she’ll swing open the door to let some fresh Avenue A air in; just as quickly, she’ll close it if it gets chilly.

The clientele ranges from a less-intense sort of downtown hipster, who exchange a few friendly words with Lucy—who, even all these years later, still speaks in broken, accented English—and then retire to their personal conversations, to old Polish regulars. In fact, on another recent night, a young couple came in to show Lucy their young child. All four spoke entirely in Polish and a delighted Lucy let the little scamp climb atop the pool table. As they left, she handed the kid one of the old Halloween balloons. For those few minutes, Lucy’s was a family bar.










2022 and You Can Still GET a $3 PBR


LYS MYYKTA aka  "The SLY FOX

142 2nd Avenue, New York NY - The EAST VILLAGE






LYSMYKTA aka "THE SLY FOX" is a Ukranian Bar in a Ukranian neighborhood in
New York's East Village. There's a Ukranian Restaurant in the back, serving delicious Ukranian Food and very reasonable prices. Yes this is thee main neighborhood of Ukranian peoples in New York City. The restaurants great, and any bar that serves $3 PBR Beer is great in my book too.

If you can go some place for drinks (beers), to hang and chit-chat  and have 3 Beers, and not have to spend more than $15, that's a place for me. You shouldn't have to pay $40 plus for just 2 drinks (or $60 for 3). People who don't make quite so much money as Lawyers, Wall Street Guys and whoever, should be able to afford to go for 2 or 3 drinks and not spend an "Arm and a Leg" to do it. 
The SLY FOX is a place where you can do that, and thank God we have them, and a few other joints that we can do so.

The SPRING LOUNGE

aka SHARK BAR

45 SPRING STREET NEW YORK NY



The SHARK BAR

SPRING STREET at MOTT

Back in the day, when it was an ITALIAN NEIGHBORHOOD here.





Where it GOt its NICKNAME "SHARK BAR"


Nobody "In The KNow" calls it Spring Lounge, only Green Newcomers to Downtown New York would ever call it SPRING LOUNGE. For years it was a neighborhood "Shot & Beer" Joint. It became treny about 20 years ago (1999)

Those "In The Know" like me, only ever call it "The Shark Bar" ... It got this name from
the fake SHARK hanging over the bar, and that's that!

You can't get $3 Beers here, but we incuded it anyway. And although it's a Trendy so-called Hipster Bar, those of us Old Timers who still call it The Shark Bar, it still has a special place in our hearts.

Basta !

169 BAR

Lower East Side

If Clockwork’s happy hour special seems too good to be true, you’ve got a little good old fashioned neighborhood competition to thank. Located right around the corner, 169 has been in operation since 1916. And its 11:30am-7:30pm HH is among the best in the city. $3 will get you an “Old Man Can/Bottle” of beer (PBR, Carling Black Label, Schaefer, Genesee Cream, High Life/Miller Lite) and any well shot. Subtly New Orleanian environs (window shutters look like they’re fresh off a Creole cottage; beads are strung here and there; there’s crawfish on the menu) evoke genuine good times.
