That sinking feeling
The Post gets into the dive bar spirit today, offering up its listicle of the city's top-10 dives. I can't say there are any surprises on the list. Or let's say shockers. Was glad to see the International get some love. Co-owner Shawn Dahl is also quoted. In any event, I always find such lists pointless, except when I make them. (Joking!)
Uh, here's the list:
MARS BAR, 25 E. First St.
RUDY'S BAR & GRILL, 627 Ninth Ave.
BLARNEY COVE, 510 E. 14th St.
TURKEY'S NEST, 94 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn
HOLIDAY COCKTAIL LOUNGE, 75 St. Mark's Place
MILANO'S BAR, 51 E. Houston St.
SUBWAY INN, 143 E. 60th St.
JOHNNY'S, 90 Greenwich Ave.
O'CONNOR'S, 39 Fifth Ave, Brooklyn
INTERNATIONAL BAR, 120 ½ First Ave.
Guess there are no dive bars in Queens or the Bronx or Staten Island. Anyway! Quibble away.
