Thanks.  I'll check it out soon.

Yelp says there's bluegrass every Saturday.  Sounds like the perfect way to pass a cold gray afternoon.

Next time I'm nearby, I'm going to grab a ticket at DiPalo's and then go to Randolph Beer for a pint. By the time I get back to DiPalo's it'll be close to my turn.

Hit Happy Hour and a Blue Grass Band Saturday afternoon at Randolph Beer on Broome just off Elizabeth. 30 or so beers on tap plus a special reserve list. Looked like a decent menu too. Had an Eastern Standard IPA by Peekskill Brewing Company which is a really good IPA. And only $4 during Happy Hour. :D

 

Based on your post Deb and I hit this place on Saturday afternoon.  (The foul weather made walking around really unappealing.)

 

We got there at about 2 and had the bar to ourselves for awhile.  The tables were about half occupied.  By 4:00 when we left the bar was about 90% occupied and a lot more people were at the tables.

 

The beer list was extensive but it was early in the day and I didn't want to overdo it.  We drank slowly.  I had a Green Flash IPA which was probably a touch more bitter than I like and than a Lagunitas Lil Sumpin pale ale.  Easier drinking but a bit light.  I sound like Goldilocks.  The beer list is long enough so if we had stayed longer I definitely could have found something I'd really like.

 

There was a 6 man bluegrass band and they were terrific.  Professional quality.  Actually, they were the reason we went.  I love bluegrass and there aren't many opportunities to hear it in NYC.  I could easily see myself getting back to this place once a month.

 

BTW, the band plays from 1:30 to 5:30.

 

Mitchells, thanks again.

They should have levied a parking fee for strollers to have the money to pay taxes. Right, Lex?

Eater left out a very important beer destination.  (Well, two if you count Tørst.)
