Petite Abeille – a touch of Ooh La La in NYC.

l (3)

Got to love when a place like Petite Abeille serves up brunch on a holiday Monday, and also still honors their regular half price Belgian beer weekly special! Double bonus points!

We were here not too long ago when I was off work for a holiday. Big, bright, airy place with plenty of tables. Outside seating too for when the weather is cooperating. A lot of options on the menu for brunch, lunch, and dinner. A stellar beer list with over 20 on tap! Felt so good to kick back with a glass of Leffe Blonde, a glass of Ommegang Rare Vos, and an Allagash Dubbel – each one only $3.50! Hell yeah! Happy Day!

The brunch plates here are terrific. Had to be one of the best Croque Madame’s I have eaten in this city. Large crunchy sourdough type bread topped with grilled ham, gruyère cheese, and an egg over easy. The whole thing was baked, and the egg was cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of yolk ran when bitten into. The bread is lightly toasted and buttered too. Oh my, oh my! Healthy? Hell no. Delicious? Oh good Lord – yes!

Just a seriously chill bar to kick back in and most of all –

JELLO SHOTS!!!!!

Met up with a group of friends for an impromptu happy hour drinking binge at Destination Bar and had a great time. The place itself has a really cozy vibe, old wooden floors, open air front facade, and a terrific jukebox. Happy hour runs until 8PM every day and is half off everything – yes, everything!

I really like this type of bar. Not too big but has seating spots all around, a worn comfortable looking decor, nice bar area, and the front has what looks to be the original windows and small porch area from years ago. Nice bathrooms. A cool mix of 50’s- 90’s music playing on the jukebox. Board games available, Bartender was super nice and took care of us. She also threw us a round of shots before getting off her shift as we paid out. It’s the kind of place you can get lost in for hours. Especially during happy hour! So sweet!

Rudy’s Bar & Grill NYC – duct tape, hot dogs, and cheap beer!

Oh Rudy’s – what the heck happened last night? Again. On a Monday!

Why did you make me drink so many ridiculously cheap beers?

Did I really eat 12 free hot dogs?

Why was I singing AC/DC at the top of my lungs with people I did not know?

Was one of our lady friends hooking up with a group of Irish guys and drooling all over them in a pile of mush over their accents?

Who were all these strange crazy awesome people we kept talking to all night? Continue reading Rudy’s Bar & Grill NYC – duct tape, hot dogs, and cheap beer!
