Brooklyn Ale House
Photo by myself in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

One of the many bars in Williamsburg. There's an old-timey feel to this place.


My Dad has a fantasy of traveling to China and eating at a different restaurant for every meal. He could travel from town to town and could go on forever.

So I bought him the Lonely Planet guide to China a couple Christmases ago. It's enormous, about two inches thick. Of course he hasn't gone yet, and when (and if) he ever goes, the book will be out of date. But it's the thought that counts, right?

In the same way, you could have a drink each night in a different bar in New York and Brooklyn and not run out of places until your liver gave out.

There are sports bars and old timey bars and very, very trendy bars. There are hotel bars and tacky theme bars (airplane interiors, beauty parlors, thatched tiki huts, old railway cars).

There are underground bars without signs. There are wine bars and champagne bars. And on and on.

Looks a great place for an afternoon drink,do they serve wine and spirits and snacks or just beers.So it's a no-brainer then that you could get drunk on a pub crawl in NY :-)


Looks great I would love to have a drink there it's really rustic - NY always looks great I hope I can get there sometime
Ciao, I love your blog

That really looks 'old-timey' - very nice.

That looks like one of the places you see in the old cops shows. I didn't think they still had those around.

Hi kitty,

I love the idea of having a drink each night in a different bar in New York and Brooklyn. I think it would suit me perfectly (while my pocket book might object... ;-)

I love the red house on the corner. It makes me feel welcome. It has an inviting look, if you know what I mean.

Eva - finally back on her feet and cooking :-D

I love those guide books! I have always wanted to go to London and a few weeks ago I came across one on clearance for $1.00. It was of course out of date from a few years ago. But, I figured that Buckingham Palace and Parliament aren't going anywhere-so when I get there one day..look what a deal I made? That sounds very wacky actually now that I write it down :)
