Best Game Night


Guitar Hero Night at the Village Pourhouse
64 Third Ave., at 11th St.; 212-979-2337
Pourhouse owner Michael Sinensky discovered the winning pairing of video games and alcohol when, as a manager at Proof in the late nineties, he set up his Nintendo 64 console for patrons. Since November, though, he’s been drawing competitors to his bar’s Red Light room with Guitar Hero Night every Tuesday to channel their inner Pete Townshend. What started out as merely a staff diversion now attracts around 50 players a week, mostly during happy hour, from five to seven. And for those looking for more than just bragging rights, Sinensky is planning his first Guitar Hero tournament, where a bar tab and concert tickets will be on the line.
