This Sunday you can forget about football, folks, the NYC marathon is finally here and even if you don't want to sweat it out and run the 25+ miles, there are tons of great deals around the city for you. Get fatigued just watching the runners sprint by and medicate that thirst with some booze at these top notch hot spots.
Guzzle back some cold beers and warm food at Stir as you watch the exercise taking place outside. There will be drink specials all day, including kegs, food, and yes, there will still be games on the TVs. Specials go all day, so stop by at 11am to get your fill of fun.
Fill your tummies at Spina on Sunday and make the runners jealous. This pasta house makes all pasta by hand right in the dining room and has been booked Saturday November 5th for weeks (runners need their sustenance), but all day Sunday, Spina will be offering their fresh-made pastas at half price to anyone who brings in their marathon bib. Mangia bene!
Third and Long will be hosting a NYC Marathon after party at 6pm, featuring DJ Danny Glover. There will be great drink specials like $4 Bud & Bud Lights, as well as Shock Top pints all night long. Boo(ze)-ya!
If you would rather heal your achin' bod than load it up with dehydration-in-a-bottle, then you're in luck. Non-runners can head to the Soft Serve Fruit Co. to receive $1 off of their special Marathon Recovery Smoothie. One of the brave soldiers actually running in the event? Check out the place Sunday, bring your completion medal, and get a free Recovery Smoothie. Ahhh, refreshing...
