If you come to NY, please come prepared. The reason I am asking you, kindly, is what I call an amateur night.
I had visitors. From out of town. Big eyes. Big mouth. “Show us The City. We can take it.”
So, we started the night at McSorley’s, with a few beers. Side note, McSorley’s has the most beautiful Irish women in town. Just beware of their brothers. And it is the oldest Irish tavern here.
On to a few Bass Ales. I know, you English pretty much gave up on it. I still love it. Next, a few Brooklyn Lager. There is a reason you come to NY. Have the local brew. And then I needed something stronger.
So I ordered a few Singleton. My company skipped that, I had them all. Next up, The Balvenie. Again, I had to drink that one alone. That’s when I asked my guests: “Why don’t you take advantage of your hotel rooms?”
They accepted quickly and gladly. Which left me with a bottle of Barbera D’ Alba. All by myself. Life is good.
If you come to NY, I beg you, come prepared. No amateurs, please. This is a professional town.
