When Megan sent me an SOS for some Meg and Mo time, I had to say yes. I mean, its MEGAN. I love Megan. And I love Megan and Mo time even more! Since it was a Tuesday, Megan suggested Epsteins Bar in the Lower East Side…
Because we could get our DRANK on for cheap… and eat cheaply too.
And who am i to pass up Booze AND food? Yup. So on a random Tuesday night, i hit the Lower East Side and met Megan at Epstein’s Bar.
I got there before her. And it was DUMB cold outside so i had no choice but to wait in the bar.
Like some kind of alcoholic.
The waitress came up to me and asked me i needed anything and in my anxiety I blurted “WAITING FOR SOMEONE!”. She smiled and walked away. Luckily, Megan arrived shortly after so i wouldnt have to fiddle with my phone (which is sadly my thing to do like ALL THE TIME- im such a cellphone junkie)
I started the night with some beer. The onliest thing I know is that its Dog Fish Head. How freakin sad am I? The waitress didnt know what it was either. It definitely tasted like an amber ale… and was delicious. So i inhaled this pint of beer…
And the pints at Epsteins are so heavy! I had to take girly sips of beer with two hands supporting the heavy ass cup. It was kinda hilarious… and inspired my facebook profile pic. 🙂 But its only because i think its 100% adorable.
Im not conceited, I promise.
Megan had a fancy girl glass of white wine. Fancy fancy meg.
When we got our menus, the waitress reminded us that the offerings on the menu were half price on Tuesdays.
PSH. AS IF we need reminding when food is half price.
I went in with a game plan. I desperately wanted fries. Like desperately. . .
So i ordered a grilled vegetable wrap. It was very simple but prepared fresh. Some of the ingredients are way out of season so they weren’t as amazing as they should be (oh veggies how i love you) but i really couldn’t complain for the insane value going on here.
And the fries? Perfection.
As we were finishing up our heavy beverages, the waitress asked if we were ready for round 2. With a mouthful of food I tried to say No when Megan chimed in YES!
And thats how I ended up having 2 pints of beer on a Tuesday night.
4 drinks and 2 wrap platter= $20. Are you friggin kidding me?
This is no 5 star cuisine. Far from it. But if you want standard bar food thats made freshly and wont give you
diarrhea a stomach ache food poisoning, this place is awesome… and lets not leave out the fact that they have amazing deals!
So with that, Alls i have to say is “Is it Tuesday Yet?”
