A quick post, as I'm just off to give some distant cousins from Bremen my NYC in a day tour. But...I have to remove an establishment from my list of places to go. For a couple of years I've been hitting Epicerie Café Charbon on the Lower East Side for its great happy hour deal. I made arrangements to meet some people there yesterday, but we were informed that they no longer offered happy hour, because "it wasn't bringing in many people, and not much cheaper than our normal prices."
What? You're getting rid of happy hour? In the middle of a recession? Are you nuts?
We stayed, but the drinks were way more expensive than the old happy hour prices... I was NOT a happy camper.
Off the list!!!
