Jeepney Joins The Bottomless Brunch Crowd

Filipino gastropub, Jeepney, has introduced a bottomless brunch on weekends 2 hours of booze and an entree for $29.  I’m  big fan of Jeepney (as well as it’s sister restaurant, Maharlika) and I do love to get drunk, so this is a nice addition. It seems like a lot of East Village restaurants are offering […]

Boulton & Watt

Like many other East Villagers I was sad to see Nice Guy Eddies close.  The KISS mural outside was a bit of a neighborhood landmark, the food wasn’t the best (I was a fan of the wings) and the place was pretty dingy, but it was a chill place to get a beer & watch […]
