    Default Turning 21 and going to NYC Any Ideas?

    Hey everyone....I'm finally turning the big 2-1 in November and am planning a night out in the city with a bunch of the guys from my station. We only have 1 place on our list for the evening and that would be Mcsorleys Pub. Any ideas of any other places that we could visit for the special evening? We got ourselves a limo so driving will not be a problem....any ideas are appreciated thanks....

    If you're up in Times Square area...Hit Scruffy Duffy's...it's on 8th Ave between 46th and 47th St's..When I was down there for a week in April for my medic class, I spent almost every night there (a block from our hotel). Nice Irish bar with big tv's to watch the games.

    Don't let the little head think for the big one.

    If you do "get lucky"... remember,it's cool to protect your tool!

    Stay out of tatoo parlors.

    Hey Gonz, don't forget...

    If you think you got lucky and you are surprised how easy it was, be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Check for extra "parts".

    Chumleys' - Bedford St & Barrow St in Grenwich Village (old speakeasy)
    Minetta's Tavern - MacDougal & Minetta Ln in Grenwich Village (low key nice place)

    McFadden's = 42nd & 2nd - Midtown East (club type)
    Doc Watsons - 77th & 2nd - Upper East Side
    Brother Jimmy's - 77th & 2nd - Upper East Side across from Doc Watsons
    Tin Lizzy's - 82ish & 2nd - Upper East Side

    There are a ton of good places up and down 2nd Ave in the upper 70's all the way up to the upper 80's.

    I am sure there are other good places too.

    Happy Birthday, have a good time and be careful

    What not hanging out in exciting South Amboy?!?

    I did my 21st crawling around New Brunswick (NJ). Don't really remember too much, just my older friends kept edging me on to 25 total shots...

    PS. you know it's a slammin' 21st when you aren't the only one F'ed up. If everyone around you is as hammered, you're doing just fine.

    PSS. Happy Birthday!

    PSSS. What about Hoboken? dozens of bars in just a few blocks?

    Resq14, I like the first clip best.

    Anyway, if the rangers are playing you might want to consider hitting the garden or espn zone for dinner and "pregame". I've found that the comedy clubs are great, it will kill an hour or two you can keep drinking, just try to blend in though or you will be a target. There are plenty of great little bars I like to just go and find ones that lood packed. The limo is a good idea although it might suck waiting for it in between different spots, I always liked the train.

    Also I've found it best to keep my id's in my left pants pocket and money in the right it is a lot harder to lose a wallet you don't have.

    Noticed your avatar. Are you a UM Black Bear? I had the opportunity to watch a Black Bear slaughter at JMU last Sat.
