Entries in Amity Hall (1)


July 31, 2011

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.

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!"
