Professor Thom was a pioneering 19th century bartender and his namesake, subterranean, 41-foor bar has a thing or two to teach thirsty scholars. How about a lesson in exotic beers? Among the 25 or so brews on tap are the high-octane Belgian ale Delirium Tremens and England's Blackthorn Cider. For those who prefer book learning, plenty of reading light spills onto the lacquered hardwood floors, wooden booths, and big tables in the back where overstuffed leather couches perched on a riser could inspire a prolonged study session. NYU and New School students can further supplement their off-campus educations during Tuesday’s trivia night, or by watching CNN on one of the 24 TVs. But Yankees fans beware: One of the owners, Jim McGuire, started the Sox scene at the Riviera and he continues that tradition here. For those who come to drink and not to think, top-shelf liquor and sobering burgers and sandwiches ensure that the hangover won't be too harsh when it's time for the big test tomorrow.
