The Knicks suck… this drink don’t.
I made a Knickerbocker last night at my regular gig, Puffy’s Tavern in TriBeCa. Puffy’s has a storied history that goes back to the 1940’s when a sailor named “Puffy” opened the bar for the dock workers. My history there spans the past 3 years, which is kinda long for a bartender. It’s a place that caters to Office Types during lunch, Bankers during happy hour, Restaurant-Wanderers and Regulars (I’ll tell you more about them as we go along) at night and Cheesy party types on the weekends. Though there’s nothing rather exceptional or special about this bar , it’s a good old place.
