Today's sign of apocalypse: Michael Jackson East Village pub crawl



Ohhh! A warning shot by Village Pourhouse reminding Superdive that they are, in fact, the tackiest bar in the neighborhood.

Starting tomorrow at 11 a.m.:

King of Pop Pub Crawl:
Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough

Moonwalk your way up 2nd and 3rd Ave of NYC in memory of the legendary Michael Jackson. We begin at Village Pourhouse at 11am where your free white glove awaits and we will start living life OFF THE WALL. Let your style SCREAM by dressing up as Michael and look as BAD as you can. Each bar will celebrate musical genius by showcasing our favorite MJ albums in order of release date.

You will feel like a SMOOTH CRIMINAL with a full day of drink specials. Toast Mikey with $1 Bud Lite Drafts, $2 Well Drinks, and 2 for 1 BLACK OR WHITE cocktails (Black and Tans)

You will truly BEAT IT with our final stop at SideBAR at 5pm with 2 for 1 Margarita “King of Pop-sicles.” It is here that we will pay a final tribute with an organized THRILLER dance scene with every Michael in attendance.


If this is too tacky for you, then there's always the Michael Jackson wine pairing.

Maybe as the evening comes to a close they can all "Be Like Mike" and take some obscene ammounts of prescription pain killers and join their fallen idol - we can always dream.

"Toast Mikey with $1 Bud Lite Drafts"?
They couldn't even choose a real beer?

If this was at Superdive:

"Toast Mikey with a $450 keg of Stella."

Actually a befitting tacky sendoff for a very tacky pop icon. They deserve each other.
Still, to stay accurate with "The King's" weapons of choice, shouldn't they be serving Jesus juice boxes, pop-tarts, oxycontin lines and demorol injections?

btw: my word verification is mednes.

how very appropeau.....

I was gonna post this but some of my "followers" are actually going to this and think that they really are paying a tribute: see this and this comment from Michael Dorf.

Anyway, I'm glad you had the guts to post this.
