the oldest brew

Some complain that McSorley's, New York's oldest bar, is overrun with fratboys and business types. Who cares? There's still sawdust on the floor, cheese sandwiches, and watered down beer. I love it.

Are you a fratboy or business type then eh? Hmmmm, making me see things a little differently on this blog :)

I've had more than a pint or two in there.

So now we must wonder if B Squared was a "frat boy or business type"! And don't you be watering down my beer!

This bar is just oozing character. Long live McSorley's and others of its ilk.

I think this is the only bar in NYC that I've ever been in. And that was more than 25 years ago. Maybe it didn't have the fratboys back then but it certainly had the sawdust, cheese and, as I recall, onions.

Looks like a good place to go. I like the dark, blurred figure walking in front of it.

Man, soon as Gloria Steinem broke the all male barrier I was in there quaffing the pints and eating liverwurst and onion sandwiches with friends who philosophized on everything. Best time to go there is on a week day.
