So it’s a lovely 68 degrees outside. The air conditioner guys have just delivered our ACs from winter storage. (I believe this is a NYC phenomenon–the off-site storage of summer equipment in the winter months. We need to do this because we can’t fit ONE MORE THING in our apartments. We really can’t.)
To celebrate, I’m meeting a girlfriend for a cocktail in the neighborhood. Here are a few choices for an outdoor drink and perhaps a nosh:
Bar Six: (6th Avenue near 13th St.) Laid back, great for people watching while noshing on French-Moroccan food.
Gottino: (Greenwich between Charles and Perry) Wines by the glass, carafe or bottle. Yummy Italian snacks–crostini, formaggio, salumi, olive mista…all of the major food groups at your fingertips.
Wogie’s Bar & Grill: (Greenwich St. by Charles) Cheap drinks, Philly cheesesteaks and hot wings. Seriously unhealthy grub, but sometimes that’s what the doctor ordered.
Madame X: (West Houston by Thompson) Head to the garden outside to sip a chardonnay or down a “Born Yesterday” (Bombay gin, mango nectar, splash of sour and soda).
