While I’ve lived on the UES for over a year now, there are a number of restaurants and bars that I haven’t gotten around to trying yet. So last week my boyfriend and I decided to hit up three new bars: Ryan’s Daughter, Caledonia Scottish Pub, and Auction House.
We started at Ryan’s Daughter [...]
Tuesdays are a great night for going out. It’s nice for catching up with a friend since it’s still early enough in the week Â that restaurants and bars aren’t too crowded. And as an extra bonus, because it’s early in the week, restaurants and bars will offer great deals to get people in their [...]
I love free food during happy hour (or any hour for that matter)! Marty O’Brien’s on the Upper East Side offers a long, albeit somewhat early (for those with real jobs), happy hour from noon – 6:30 pm Monday – Friday. Patrons can enjoy 2 for 1 drinks AND free hot dogs! So if [...]
It’s the first Friday of the month, and I’m Not At Work (INAW) is celebrating with its usual free hour of an open bar for card members. This time it’s at Bullpen on the UES, and from 7-8 pm you can get unlimited Bud Light and well drinks. It’s worth heading over before and/or [...]
A new Asian fusion restaurant opened on the Upper East Side: Fusion 88. To celebrate its grand opening, they’re offering half-priced drinks all day and night from April 1 – May 1. So stop by for some cheap drinks and try the food while you’re at [...]
A few weeks ago Laura (thoughts in Italics)Â and I were kindly invited to dine atÂ Jones Wood Foundry, a “food driven pub” (love that) tucked away off of First Avenue on the Upper East Side. Besides fish and chips,Â Shepherd’sÂ pie, bangers and mash, and beer, I wasn’t exactly sure what else constituted British cuisine, so I [...]
If you find yourself on 69th and 2nd tomorrow, March 31, from noon – 2pm, head to Golosi. Â Golosi will be handing out free sandwiches with mortadella and grilled veggies. Â It appears that you do not have to say anything or bring any coupon in to score this [...]

Last Tuesday I met an old boss/friend for drinks to catch up. We both live on the UES and wanted to find a place with specials (or at least I did) that wouldn’t be taken over by Fat Tuesday celebrations. Having walked by Trinity Pub a few times, [...]
Last month, I fell in love with Uva, an Italian restaurant/wine bar on the UES. Â Tonight is Uva’s 6th birthday, and according to their Facebook page, they will be offering $6 glasses of wine and $6 appetizers. Â Enjoy!

I apologize if I saw you on Saturday. Â Why? Â Because most likely I rambled on about my phenomenal dinner on Friday.
My boyfriend and I decided to check out Uva on Friday night on the Upper East Side. Â Walking into the restaurant, you knew this was [...]
