CB3 Approves “Dining in the Dark” & More

Community Board 3’s SLA Committee meeting was a relatively tame affair last night.  Memo to bar owners:  August is a great time to get your liquor license application past CB3. The biggest topic of conversation in the cheap seats was EV Grieve’s totally hilarious and “spot on” Community Board/SLA Drinking Game.  For the record, at least one applicant did in fact proclaim, “dear old mom from the Old Country will be the chef.”

Spitzer’s Corner

Open to the street on two sides, featuring a big beer menu and serving up surprisingly decent “gastropub” fare, this place is one of the neighborhood’s most popular nightlife destinations.  Go for lunch or happy hour to avoid the frat party that begins to build after 8pm.
