If you like to eat, chances are you like to drink (read: a lot of you are freakin’ lushes), so I thought maybe it was time to introduce a happy hour column to the site. Every week, our Happy Hour Correspondent “Mamacita” posts about a different bar in Midtown that fits the Midtown Lunch mentality: unhealthy food, not lame (unless it’s lame in a cool way), and most importantly… cheap. Because it’s Halloween on Saturday, Mamacita figured she would give you a list of all the Happy Hours and Halloween parties going on tonight and tomorrow night.
All Hallows’ Eve may rival St Paddy’s for the most lubricated holiday of the year, that is, unless you spend Christmas with the in-laws. There’s a parade, revelers dressed in ghoulish costumes, and drunken masses hitting the bars. To top it all off this year it lands on a weekend. Who could ask for anything more? Here is the round up of local haunts for tonight and Halloween:
NYC’s biggest drunken stumble of them all starts tonight with a three-day bar crawl engulfing many a Midtown staple. More than 100 New York City bars are participating. Your ticket includes cover charges and drink specials at each and every bar on the trip. The official “Midtown bar crawl” is tonight, October 30th and continues to November 1st. Tickets are $15 for a single night of crawling, or $30 for all three nights, although you can get discounted tickets here .
Registration begins at TG Whitneys (on 53rd btw. 2+3rd), and lasts from 5-10pm. There will be drink specials including $2 Bud Light, 2-for-1 Pumpkin Ales and 2-for-1 Halloween Cocktails (Drink Specials May Vary at Each Bar.) For more info, and a list of participating venues go to Halloween Now.
But wait, there’s more…
