Have meant to but haven't been yet. There's also a gimmicky Chinatown bar called Hop Sing Laundromat that's gotten a lot of buzz, but the more I read about it, the less I'm inclined to check it out. My favorite cocktail bar in town is probably still Southwark.

Shoot me a pm when you're heading this way.

Hop Sing is a really good deal during happy hour. It is only $9 for a cocktail then. He doesn't pour anything that is under $30 a bottle. I found the whole thing mildly pretentious though. Time is pretty good as well. Have you been to pen & pencil yet? That was my favorite place in the city.

I might have to check out Hop Sing. Despite the GRAVE PERIL of angering the owner and getting thrown out.

Haha, yeah. I've been to the Pen and Pencil. I would've enjoyed it more if the bartender hadn't been hacking the whole time and talking to his regulars about how he should probably be on antibiotics.

I can't believe how crazy good and simple leeks vinaigrette are.

Just tell Lee you know Meg and Brett. You won't be thrown out.

Hop Sing is interesting, there was a period where I hit Philly every few months for business, so I've been twice, as well as to most of the other decent cocktail bars down there -- Ranstead, Franklin Mortgage, Southwark (my first, a few years ago). I hate the BS routine you have to go through the first time, I mean, shit, man, I'm there for a drink, I'm in a good suit, and I am respectful. Whatevs. It is quiet and the drinks are really cheap for what are top-flight cocktails. Franklin still gets my vote though.

 

Anyway, studying for finals, had a friend come over and make me dinner. Sweet. So, one Ginza cocktail, some Molydooker Verdehlo, and now a Cure for Pain....and a few more hours of studying. FML.
