    Wife & I are flying in for the Afghan Whigs show at Terminal 5. Will only be in town until Sunday. Any places we should definitely hit. We're lucky enough to live in Grand Rapids, MI (home of Founders) and are spoiled by great beer. Hoping to hit a few places w/great beer selections before we fly out. Thanks so much!

    Walking distance you have Pony Bar. Everything always $5 and their beer menu is on their website in real time.

    Also check out Valhalla at 54th St. and 9th Ave.

    Slightly farther away, in lower midtown, you have the Ginger Man (36th St. between 5th Ave. and Madison Ave.) and Rattle n' Hum (33rd St. between 5th Ave. and Madison Ave.).

    Moving beyond that, it's definitely worth checking out Blind Tiger (Bleecker St. and Jones St.),Top Hops (Orchard St. and Delancey St.) and Good Beer (9th St. between 1st Ave. and Ave. A) in Greenwich Village/Lower East Side.

    Finally, if you're willing to go out to the other boroughs, think about BarCade, Spuyten Duyvil and Brouwerij Lane.

    I'm sure I'm missing some here.

    Afghan Wigs, awesome.

    Just got back from NYC, my favorite places were Barcade and Blind Tiger. Spitzer's Corner in the Lower East Side was a good place too. (the happy hour was long and $2 off every draft)

    Just wanted to add that every day from 4:20-5:20pm is their happy hour, where everything is $4. Definitely the best bang for your buck in all of NYC.
