New York State of Mind - Happy Hours & Adult Beverages!
By irun4wine on July 25, 2012
In 7 days, my Outlook calendar will fully take over my life in NYC at BlogHer. I feel we deserve a few cocktails along the way
While researching for this post, I have come to the realization of two things:
1. A specialty drink in NYC will put you back an easy $20 a pop after tip
2. I am not sophisticated by NYC drinking standards. Gone are the days of ordering a simple Cosmo
It seems there are tons of Speakeasy's throughout Manhattan, so we will be visiting PDT - Please Don't Tell. PDT is a prohibition style bar located inside of Crif Dogs. You find the phone booth, and you get access into a bar which is claimed to have amazing drinks.

I am sure we are going to be in need of many Bloody Mary's this trip. I found what has been named one of the best Bloody Mary's in town at Brother Jimmy's. It is served in a Mason Jar, with pickled green beans. Win win. Going to a BBQ joint in NYC will be a first for both of us.
Darlynn has taken the backseat this trip on my neurotic planning. She had only two requests in the land of cocktails. First was drinking at a roof top bar. We found the Sky Room Times Square which happens to have a Happy Hour! Conveniently, Wednesday's are $7 Caipirinha night.!

Darlynn's second was going to St. Dymphna's for a pint. This is her favorite bar in NYC.
I am currently obsessed with Pisco Sour's, and there multiple locations offering this yummy drink. I really wanted to go to WD-50 but it is too far for our limited time schedule. So we will be visiting Pio Pio
The London is offering a free glass of champagne or a complimentary appetizer to BlogHer attendees - so we will be partaking in a little bubbly. The London is very active on Twitter, you should follow them if you are planning on going to NYC.

And finally a trip to NYC wouldn't be the same without a few Cosmos. I may be stuck in the last decade, but I still love Carrie Bradshaw and can watch countless hours of Sex and the City (the show, not the movie).
