Blue & Gold Tavern
East Village Gold!
79 E. 7th Street
(between 1st Ave & 2nd Ave)
New York, NY
If you're down near Astor Place or Union Square, stop by Blue & Gold Tavern for their $3 beers and $4 shots. This no-BS bar doesn't take credit, but they do take NYU hippies. The atmosphere in this bar is really cool, and isn't overly-divelike. You'll save considerable green over this bar's competitors by enjoying the cheap beers and reasonably priced food.
Amazing deals on apartments are lurking right around the corner, if you know where to look, and when.
