Easter at the Mars Bar

Following yesterday's Fuck the Mars Bar post... here's someone who just loved his experience at the bar... Marty Wombacher paid a visit on Easter Sunday for a post on his A Guy Walks into 365 Bars blog... He posted all sorts of pictures there (including these two on this page)... and even ordered Easter dinner for everyone from Two Boots....
His final assessment:
"As the Bed Bath And Beyonds and Barnes and Noble “superstores” continue to ruin New York City, thank God for institutions like the Mars Bar. This concrete rectangle of graffiti and art-filled madness is a testament to old school New York artists, free thinking folks and people looking to drink and have a good time. The only Blackberry you’ll find in here is brandy and the only thing close to and iPad is an artist pad that’s passed around the bar where the locals add their original sketches."
Thanks to the AK for the tip.

would you eat off that bar?

EV Grieve said...

Yes, of course! I actually had an Easter meal of pizza here several years back....

And that $5 on the cash register is the new price for the cheapest beer. No more drinking all day on a dime for me...

Thanks for the shout-out! Stop by next Easter, I'll be buying the Pizza again, I hope to make it a tradition.
