This weekend, many restaurants shut down in anticipation of Hurricane Irene. Some restaurants couldn't staff their restaurants while others were just being prudent. There were a few restaurants and bars that did stay open and I'd bet they are happy they did. There was a lot of talk leading up to the hurricane, but it wasn't all that bad. The rain was pretty strong and whipping winds brought down a couple trees, but no real damage was seen.
On Saturday, some friends headed over to the 13th Step after experiencing cabin fever waiting for Irene's wrath. This "bro bar" was in full swing when we got there. The place was packed and people were partying like they didn't have a care in the world. Rounds of beers/shots were bought, dance circles formed, and new friends made. It might not be your normal scene, but less loose --its hurricane season!
And after all the boozing and dancing, you could order some wings or a chicken a waffle sandwich to bring home for a drunk snack. The chicken and waffle sandwich proved to be so delicious, someone paid me $100 to brave the storm and pick them up 2! So next time there's a hurricane, put on a ridiculous outfit (wetsuits welcomed) and head over to "bro bar", the 13th Step!
