Opening tonight, Pouring Ribbons on Avenue B, featuring drink matrix

Back in November, we noted that an "artisanal cocktail bar" was in the works for 225 Avenue B, the upstairs space that most recently was home to White Noise and Uncle Ming's. Per Zagat, this new bar, called Pouring Ribbons, (soft) opens tonight.

The bar is by the people at Alchemy Consulting — described on its website as "a firm based on increasing the profitability of bars and restaurants around the country through innovative beverage design." New York clients include Bar Seven Five at the Andaz Wall Street

As Zagat notes about Pouring Ribbons:

Each beverage is plotted on two scales, one ranging from refreshing to spiritous, the other from comforting to adventurous. Booze hounds are sure to go for the Hagar and Helga, the most spirit forward and exciting of the bunch — it's a mix of Linine Aquavit, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, cumin syrup and cinnamon bitters.

You can find that drink menu here.

Meanwhile, how many artisanal cocktail bars can one neighborhood possibly support?

Do they take NYU credit cards?

Don't most university have branded credit cards? Even my little *#%#&#* of a school sends me credit card offers occasionally.

As of autumn semester 2013, NYC students will be tattooed on the back of their necks with QR/barcodes containing home address and financial data.

Bars will be equipped with special scanners, allowing for direct autopay from the parents' accounts.

Taxicabs will be equipped with scanners that will autoread the GPS coordinates of the student's $6k/month art loft on Avenue D.

A $5B research project by NYU determined the back of the neck as the most convenient location, since students are most often slumped unconscious face first over their own $21 artisal cocktail and vomit pile.

Why do they even bother... By the time the woo woo posse get there they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between paint thinner and 3 day old dish water anyway ...
