Enjoying Pugs and Drinks, Outside

Lap Dogs
Photo by myself at Stanton and Allen Streets, on the Lower East Side.

A couple of pugs and their owners enjoy some drinks outside at Epstein's Bar, a neighborhood bar on Stanton and Allen Streets. The restaurant serves typical American food and drinks at reasonable prices.

I think I caught the eye of one pug. The other pug was lost in thought.

The name of the restaurant is a little odd. It is a play on a serious virus of the herpes family called the Epstein Barr Virus. Not sure why people would want to align their establishment with a serious ailment, but whatever.

Pardon all the photos from the limited neighborhoods, recently. I have been very busy and I will spare you from my kvetching! ;-)

funny
but dont forget, epstein also is just the name of a person. and this is his bar.... in fact there have been several (semi)famous people with the name epstein, not to forget the mister epstein that discovered the virus. if ever i finally make a big discovery in the lab i will also name it after myself!

I'm just happy your limited neighborhoods of late are in Manhattan, not Staten Island, Kitty! Nice shot and amusing bar name story.
