Why would any Park Sloper leave his brownstone for a homey bar that’s basically a converted railroad apartment sporting the exact same architectural strong points? The 4th Avenue Pub suggests about 87 reasons—27 on draft and more than 60 in bottles. The rotating array of beers from cult microbreweries like Allagash, Blue Point, and Victory should overjoy nearby residents, especially those who appreciate the beauty of the words “Arrogant Bastard on tap.” Early-evening happy hours serve to shorten the distance to an off-the-boozing-path location. Why else would you leave the comfort of home? Because you don’t have a Ms. Pac-Man console or someone willing to clean up the empties.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
