Live from New York, it’s Cheeseburger Saturday Night! Starring Amity Hall with special guests Gene and Terry from the BBC and featuring the Ready For Prime Beef Player, Marty Wombacher. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome tonight’s host, Amity Hall!´╗┐

Out on the town with 2/3 of the BBC, Terry and Gene. We started out at my apartment. They generously brought some beer including...

One lone Sol to replace the former orphan. Okay, Britta, this beer's for you!

After a few pre-bar beers we head off into the night.

And here we are at Amity Hall. One of the last stops on the bar crawl last year. (See: "Further Reading," below.)

Here's two familiar faces, Shannon and Nav! Great to see both of them again and they remembered Gene and I from the bar crawl last year.

The BBC and me!

Teagan was also on duty and here she is gooning with Shannon!

Wooden candle-lit tables line the wall opposite the bar.

A shot of some of the bottles behind the bar.

MAD presents an exclusive "Behind the Bar" photo.

Shannon pours a beer...

While Teagan presents a cashew!

The condiments are placed on the bar which means dinner is not far away!

Gene and Terry got the Angry Burger which has spicy cheese inside. I got that last time and it was great, but I decided to go with...

The Sliders. I had a late lunch and wasn't that hungry, so I thought I'd try something not quite as filling. They were delcious, but I have to admit the Angry Burger is a little better.

But I'm not complaining, the sliders hit the spot.

As always Gene cleaned his plate and worked up a sweat while doing so!

After diner Shannon gave us shots of Jameson on the house.


As we were leaving we said goodbye to Nav who was in his DJ booth. He DJ's at Amity Hall Friday and Saturday from 10pm to 4am and is available for private parties and other venues. You can call him at 646-418-1180 or email him at: DJ Nav. Goodnight everybody and see you tomorrow after dark.

Bonus Photos By Gene and Terry At The Blarney Cove!

I had a drink with the BBC (minus Smoopy) at the Peculiar Pub after dinner and then pussied out and called it a night. They soldiered on to the Blarney Cove and here’s some photos of their time there, plus their bar crawling schedule from yesterday.

  • 1.   1:36 pm—McGuinness's Saloon (Queens)
  • 2.   2:23 pm—Gaslight (Queens)
  • 3.   3:45 pm—Valhalla
  • 4.   4:35 pm—Brickyard Gastropub
  • 5.   6:22 pm—Ipanema
  • 6.   6:41 pm—Johnny's Bar
  • 7.   7:27 pm—Marty's Apartment
  • 8.   9:17 pm—Amity Hall
  • 9.  10:32 pm—Peculiar Pub
  • 10.  11:29 pm—Blarney Cove (til 2:30am+)

The Blarney Cove, the magnet that always pulls the BBC back at the end of the evening.

Inside, this woman doesn't want her photo taken...

But this birthday girl isn't so shy and poses with Gene.

Here comes Terry with drink refills!

And last but certainly not least, Gene just sent in this photo from Pete's Diner where he and Terry were having lunch and who walks in but Shannon from last night! I told you Gene was stalking you Shannon! Two words: "Restraining order!"

A wonderful time was had by all ... a great weekend ! THANKS ! running into Shannon in Queens today was the cherry on top :)

July 31, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@csp: I didn't see The Hangover, although it it in my Netflix Queue.

@GENE: Another great night out and it was fun hanging out with you and Terry! And how funny that you ran into Shannon in Queens! As Stephen Wright once said, "It's a small world, but I'd hate to paint it."

Gene and Terry know how to party,,,,how they can hit that many bars and remember Shannon the next day is beyond me, I probably would of been invisible after about the third bar, Hey Marty,,,this BBC is for serious drinkers, I would love to see if I could still keep up with them,,,,,I wouldn't bet on me though, lol

We're partying at Billy Marks West now ... before going back :(

Billy here told us Walters Bar closed for good yesterday ! ... thankfully I got to go on Friday ... but Billy said he's never going anywhere !

July 31, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

Actually Walters is only closing for renovations -- and should reopen in October ! Wheeeew !

July 31, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@Al: I can't keep up with them! They went on hours after I called it quits! To the BBC!

@GENE: Wheeeew, indeed! I'll go back to their grand-reopening in October!

July 31, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

I'd gladly fuck you on Tuesday for a cheeseburger today.

I love the metal railing there! Looks like a fun night and good food. Glad Britta has a beer waiting for her again!

a lot to comment on a Sunday evening...GENE please be advised that the computer was left on w/ a piece of paper beneath it w/ your name and an arrow pointin' upward...when i thought it was the "big one" 'cause Walter's is at the top of my list if when i get back downtown...
golly geez...GENE and Terry don't know if i could keep up but like to give it a go...'cause you boys (oh no...not PC Correct...but said in totally respect) appear to know how to do it...
was gonna say something 'bout sex and the cheeseburger...got lost in the translation...
MAD...you got a hell of crew followin' you (i'm excluded ' cause i'm just a normal type of guy)...

A few questions for ya, Party. What does BBC stand for, besides British Broadcasting Company? What is SOL, besides Shit outta luck? What is Amity Hall, besides a hallway in the Amityville Horror house? Is Shannon really that hot or am I very drunk? What was that mysterious light shining through the liquor bottles, or am I really drunk? Did a 14 year old have sex for a cheeseburger or WITH a cheeseburger? Was the birthday girl really that hot or do I need a cheeseburger in the worst way? Yeah, 5 White Castles will do.

July 31, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDanny Maness

Yes! Thanks Gene and Terry! I will happily drink that Sol-cheers to you! Marty, we are looking at the second weekend of September to come out. I'll let you know when we have it set.

@J. Wellington Wimpy: The kitchen is closed!

@kari: And there's a bottle of water waiting for you as well!

@tehennessey: My cell phone blew up, call me or send me your cell phone number! And this applies to everyone else as well, I lost my whole cell phone list!

@rr: But I don't drink milk! But a great quote anyway!

@Danny Maness: I think you're really drunk! Not that there's anything wrong with that!

@Britta: I'll mark the calendar, looking forward to the return visit and I'll save the Sol's for you!

I can get Burgers here in France & they are Great , not the same bun , & in most restaurants they come with no Bun. I haven't seen any sliders & sure they don't know what it is .
ZioumZioum was talking to me & now I forgot what I was going to write .

@Ummo: Cheers and happy hamburgering in France!

August 1, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

I probably shouldn't give this away, but I regularly have brunch at Amity Hall because...it's YUMMY. The scones are to die for and I don't even like scones! They've got an unlimited bloody mary bar, which can't be beat...and don't get me started on the bacon. Brunch time is also nice and quiet...a great place to watch baseball.

August 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGoggla

Man, I would literally KILL for a cheeseburger right now.

August 1, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermeleah rebeccah

@Goggla: I've never had a scone, perhaps I will try the brunch there and check it out, thanks for the tip!

@Meleah: If you do kill for a cheeseburger that will turn you into a Hamburgler!
