Many people don’t realize the name of Williamsburg’s erstwhile coke bar was actually spelled with a K, but that’s because who would remember such a pesky detail from a night out here?

I can’t believe The Gallery on McDonald avenue that used to be around since the late 30’s or early 40’s didn’t make the cut! Great dive bar, great bar period! Gone over a year now.
