WSO NYC Happy Hour: Fri Nov 1 @ The Pony Bar

Join us @IlliniProgrammer 's favorite watering hole, located on 45th Street and 10th Avenue (NOT THE GALWAY HOOKER), to meet your fellow simians and down some food and drink. 21+ only, please.

We won't have our own space this time, but you should be able to find us. Look for a group of well-dressed gentlemen!

The Pony Bar was named after a type of beer served at a racetrack, and it offers good food and a full bar--the main draw being its rotating menu of 20 American craft beers at $5 a pour. It's like happy hour all night!

We'll also be welcoming a couple of WSO members who will be in town from Hong Kong.

Meetups are always a fun way to meet (and carouse with) other members of the site. Good times are usually had by all, and they tend to go till around 10-11pm (or basically, whenever we feel like ending it). If you're stuck in the office, sneak out anyway, and we can all vouch for you.

I will swing by at the beginning for a bit. I work in buy-side quant and tend to be fairly friendly.

I will be there. Thanks for the post!

50:50 chance I'll be there. It is over fall break for me. And as much as I hate paying $5 for beer in Manhattan, it sure beats paying $7.

My point is that out in the NJ suburbs, I can go to a bar and get a beer for $2.

I won't be in town for this, but am in NYC this weekend Friday through Monday speaking to a couple of banks in mid-town on Friday and one downtown on Monday about potential opportunities. Would anyone be available to meet up sometime Friday night or over the weekend?

@AndyLouis: well, you've got to maximize the utility of the alcohol dollars. @IlliniProgrammer isn't an alcoholic, so he usually doesn't have to worry about a large tab.

Or he can use four tips to buy a beer for himself. That's 25% better than Manhattan. It's a 25% tip! The rule is 20%, sheesh. Anyways the other half of the time I am paying $1, so that's 50%.

No one's judging you IP, it's cool. haha
