Best Free Drunk Snacks:
Fourth Avenue Pub
(76 Fourth Ave, Boerum Hill)
We break our vegan vows at least once a week after we’ve had a few too many here: we grab a plastic tray, cover it with wax paper, and dump in shovelfuls of warm, buttery popcorn from the movie theater-style popcorn machine—then we shovel it up into our mouths in sloppy, embarrassing handfuls, and stumble back for more. Sorry to anyone who’s ever had to watch us do this; to the staff; and to the cows whose milk went into the butter.
