A Grand Time Out


I recently organized a night out in Astoria with a bunch of friends. We debated where to go, but ultimately decided on a place we’d never been to before: The Grand Cafe Lounge.

It’s a few blocks from the subway, and it was a bit cold when we trudged there. When we got in the door, I was happy to find the place was exactly what I was looking for. A lounge that looked nice, but not pretentious. Lively, but not crowded or loud. We had a nice long table reserved for our gathering.

Funny NYC Bar Signs Series – Subway Bar – Cheap Beer and Bad Decisions

It’s been a while since I saw a bar sign worthy of the famous NYC Metblogs “Funny Bar Signs” series, so image my utter delight in finding that Subway Bar in Williamsburg is still up to their old tricks with these two funny signs, spied during that debaucherous time between Christmas and New Years when all the hipsters are looking to drink cheap, crappy beer and make out with one another. Funny thing is, I have never actually set foot in this bar–it looks rather sketchy, but their signs continue to amuse…

Funny NYC Bar Signs Series – Silver Swan – Kittens and Supermodels


Not only is the Silver Swan in Gramercy a great place to get a sausage platter (the wild boar is outrageous!) and a lambic (yum…framboise), they also seem to be a little bit twisted. And there ain’t nothing wrong with that!

And there’s more on the other side:

Check out the other-worldly glow of the Pabst signage above. Oooohhhh. Purdy…
