Free Shot of Booze


Hank’s Saloon
46 Third Ave., nr. Atlantic Ave., Boerum Hill; 718-625-8003
It is tough to finagle some free liquor in this town. But if you go to Hank’s “Rootin’ Tootin’ Saloon” on a Monday night, the band leader will deliver a shot of “courage” (usually Jack Daniel’s) directly into your mouth for free. All you have to do is get onstage and sing a country-and-western song, karaoke style, with the Brooklyn Country All-Stars playing behind you. And who doesn’t want to do that already?
