Nachos topped with tomato, onion, jalapenos, olives, cheese, and sour cream ($7.99)
It took awhile, but the four of us finally found the same hour to spare to meet up for some drinks and cheap food. WeÂ met each other during the infamous ISP trip, courtesy of NYU Stern, in Budapest. We gorged on McDonalds there and decided to upgrade this time around.
The Blind Pig has some awesome happy hour deals even on a Saturday.
$3.50 Bud and Bud Light draft

Chicken Fingers: beer battered chicken served with our spicy duck sauce. ($6.99)
The sweet barbeque sauce was pretty good. They’re not the traditional chicken fingers that you’d expect. They’re a bit more greasy but have a nice crispy coating.
Potato Skins: loaded with cheese and bacon bits ($6.99)
These were totally not what I expected to see. I mean, that’s alot of cheese there. But you know how sometimes you get those really thick cut potato skins that are just so bland even with the cheese and bacon bits? These potato skins were about half an inch thick, so all that flavor found its way into the potato.
The nachos were also coated with a ton of cheese. But like all nachos, its flaw was that the chips near the bottom were soggy. Nevertheless, expect more than average cheese.
It’s close to Palladium, the NYU dorm near Union Square. There are a total of 9 screens to watch games on and with beer that cheap, you really can’t argue.
