In Other Words: Chains Function As The New York Times’ Cantina


“Take it from someone whose august news organization’s offices are smack in the middle of it, and who has wasted countless thirsty hours staring blankly at colleagues, who stare blankly back, as we ponder the imponderable of where, within a few blocks, we would be excited to get a post-deadline drink. More than once we’ve ended up at the second-floor bar of Ruby Tuesday, which at least has elbow room and used to serve a multiethnic chicken wing sampler. Unhappier happy hours have been had.”
–Frank Bruni, demonstrating an admirable familiarity with Ruby Tuesday’s bar menu.

I’d like to know if  the $5 Premium Cocktails are actually availble in Manhattan because I see a Ruby Relaxer (peach schnapps, vodka, Malibu, pineapple and cranberry juice) in my future.

Eat Drink Deals has aggregated a slew of chain restaurant happy hour deals.
