Ok, ok. Not everything can be an endless stream of historical sites, places it takes an hour to get to on the subway, mild seafaring, and so much food. You maybe need a stiff drink by now. And there are more than enough places to get an artful, fancy cocktail if that's your... fancy. But if what you really need is a beer-and-a-shot combo and a respite from all this culture in which you've been stewing, the best place by far is Jackie's, a beloved Park Slope holdout that most recently petitioned the White House for secession from the neighborhood. Just please, don't do anything to piss off the bartenders.
