  • The Village Pour House, having recently opened up a outpost at 982 Amsterdam Avenue, btw 108 and 109th, sends word that you can take a cab there from anywhere in the city, and if you produce the receipt at the bar, they will pay for your drinks in the amount of your fare. As a commenter at Feedbag noted, "Are you kidding? This is an insane deal… So I can go out downtown and take a cab home to have some free drinks??"
