Blind Pig

Bourgeois Pig

Ella

Grape and Grain

Section 8

Hmm. Reaction?

I hope everyone that reads TONY spends all winter at those bars, and lets the rest of us enjoy the actual good ones.

Blind Pig? Really?

Section 8 is on Avenue A between 13th and 14th, on the east side of the street just south of the deli on the corner.

I am being overly specific because there's no signage (although I did see dudes with measuring tape sizing the awning when I was drying my nails at the manicurist across the street -- this was Monday).

Also because the bar is owned by Lauren from Phoenix (13th Street @ A), and she and the people who work there are all awesome. Stop in and say hi to Jeff, Eddie, Chris, Robert (Flow Rider), and Drew for me!

Also, EV, your link goes to a different story (about where to drink if you've been laid off). Here's the URL

Thanks for the correct link, Ivv...my apologies...And I didn't realize Lauren was involved with Section 8..I'm a big fan of the Phoenix and Nowhere...

No need for apologies! Although now I wonder if we know each other -- I used to live at Phoenix and Nowhere!
