(Happy Hour) Airing of Grievances: No More Food in Jimmy’s Corner
Got this bad news about Jimmy’s Corner, one of the Midtown Happy Hours we posted about a few weeks ago:
“Thanks to some idiots, You can’t bring food into Jimmy’s any more because they were abusing Jimmy’s hospitality. Apparently Virgil’s would get so packed that you couldn’t even eat at Virgil’s bar, so people would order take-out, then go over to Jimmy’s and pig out on barbecue while using the JC facilities and only ordering a soda or asking for free water, which was wasting the JC crew’s time for almost no money (How much do you tip on free water?). They’ve since rescinded their policy of allowing food, with no exceptions. Thanks to the idiots for abusing the system and causing Jimmy’s fans to pay the price. It’s only $3 for a bud or $4 for whiskey/bourbon on the rocks, and you can’t throw them some real money?”
Another reason to hate tourists. And Times Square. And Virgil’s. And Times Square jerks who eat at Virgil’s.
