Even though there is a lot of stress at this time of the year the holiday season is a chance to relax and have some fun with friends and family. I’m still doing last minute Christmas shopping, decorating, and all the other duties attributed to the holidays but still find time to blow off some steam and kick back. It’s party time!
Now that Friday is here after a long work week the weekend is beckoning with evenings of bar hopping and debauchery. The afternoons will be swollen with pubs broadcasting college sports and baseball, while the nights will be overflowing with partiers. Beer will be flowing. Cocktails will be served. Dancing will be had. Debauchery will be on the agenda.

Like a throwback to the 1950’s Bettie Page style pin-ups. Simple, chic, and sexy with free burlesque shows on Wednesday and Thursday nights performed by some pretty talented and hot temptresses. You can almost picture this place full of men in fedora hats and women dressed to the nines back in the day drinking proper cocktails while enjoying the visually arousing entertainment on the stage.
In the foodie world there are so many choices to dine at with multiple restaurants everywhere serving up all types of fare. With the devastation that Hurricane Sandy has caused in the New York area perhaps this is a good a time as any to dine out for a few days, but instead of hitting up the bigger joints why not try out some of the smaller mom and pop establishments and support local biz?
