gah! another new series has come to the blog today. a huge part of this site is about how to live lavishly in new york city on the cheap. people always assume that i’m cool enough to get on lists at places (trust me, i’m a nobody) or clip coupons (not above doing it), so i decided to show you how to have a day/night of fun on $20. yep, twen-tee-bones!
last night, found mr andrew jackson (had to google this because i’m the worst american ever) and i in williamsburg. let’s see how i did!
we started the night at the charleston. it’s a punk dive bar that has been quite the godsend. how, you say? free! pizza! uh-huh, uh-huh! buy a happy hour beer/shot combo for $5 and a free pizza descends from heaven. if you want toppings, they’re a dollar extra. this deal is available everyday from noon to 8pm. if you are one of those people that do that stayatworkpast8 thing, no worries, the pizzas only cost a $1 after 8:30pm!
stop one: $6 (including tip)
next up, “grand budapest hotel” at williamsburg cinema. i gushed over it soon after starting this blog, ‘member? welp, it’s finally out and i went to see it. wes anderson can do no wrong. adrian brody, marry me. ralph fiennes, if adrian won’t have me, i’m available. jude law, let’s make out boo. jason schwartzman, answer the dm i sent you. ed norton, why aren’t we besties yet? bill murray, adopt me. tilda swinton, teach me thy ways.
stop two: $8
who doesn’t love old school games? meeeeeeee. i suck at the video games of our youth, but skeeball is where i shine. thankfully, full circle bar exists for me to show off my skills. i’ve been coming here for almost 4 years, but haven’t been in ages. it was great to get back to my old stomping grounds and kick some butt. full circle has skeeball everyday, but it’s free every tuesday and thursday. on top of free games, there are free hot dogs and pretzels! nooooot suggesting that you eat these free hot dogs, but it’s my job to report on the good deals. to sweeten the deal, 24oz Gennys beer is $5! on tuesdays, the ever so popular full circle trivia starts at 8:30.
stop three: $6 (including tip)
i did iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!
stick around for more of this series going forward. i’m saving your coins, one blogpost at a time. don’t say i’ve never done anything for you!
