Day 315—Saturday, November 20th, 2010
Bar Six

Live from New York, it’s Cheeseburger Saturday Night! Tonight’s host is Bar Six, with special guest star Gumby and the ready for prime beef player, Marty Wombacher. Ladies and gentlemen...Bar Six!

This is Gumby, he lives in a cup on top of my refrigerator. He doesn't get out much, so I thought I'd take him out with me on Cheeseburger Saturday Night. You ready Gumby?

Here's Gumby in all his glory out on Sixth Avenue.

And here's tonight's stop, Bar Six. I didn't get much sleep last night, so I thought we'd go here as it's just a couple blocks from where I live.

Let's go in and check it out.

Even though it's early, it's pretty crowded in here.

Here's a seat, let's see if it's taken.

Bill assures me it's free, so I sit down and take a photo of him and Gumby. Way to pimp the blog, Gumby!

Here's Chris the bartender and Gumby. As you can see, Gumby's excited to be out and about!

Have a drink, Gumby, that'll settle you down.

A view of the copper-plated bar from where Gumby and I sit.

There's a dining room in the back.

A wooden pew and tables are opposite the bar.

Gumby poses with the lovely Roxi, who's a waitress here. Hey, what are you looking at Gumby?

Chris is taking care of business behind the bar.

And Gumby meets a couple of pretty ladies seated at the end of the bar. From left: Hiwet and Ayana.

And now the stage is set!

It's Cheeseburger Saturday Night! Well, it's actually a turkey burger, but it's close enough.

And it's delicious! That's one tasty burger!

And Gumby has an after dinner drink.

Oh, oh, looks like someone had a little too much to drink.

Sheesh, passed out on his back! You can't take this guy anywhere, this is embarrassing. I think it's time to go home.

Goodnight, everybody!

I have to work today, yeah, on a Sunday. This sucks and I’m running late, so I’m going to slack off and run a review from New York magazine. And now, it’s off to work I go. Sob!


Although the décor at this West Village hangout—yellow walls, red vinyl banquettes, copper-topped café tables and rows of imported bottles of mineral water—indicates an appealing, albeit cookie-cutter French bistro, the menu contains some type-defying items. In addition to the requisite but tasty moules and steak frites, comforting North African dishes—like grilled, veggie-packed couscous, or an aromatic Moroccan chicken pie—dare to mix it up. But if you’re looking to stick to more predictable fare, sink your teeth into an expertly prepared hamburger-generic as it may be, it has acquired a fan club of its own.  Gabriella Gershenson

Bonus Photos From Tim Clack When He Was In New York City

Clacky took lots of photos when he visited here last week. And here’s another batch he sent in along with captions. Take it away, Clacky!

All hail to the Bar Crawl! To the Bar crawl! Onya Terry!

The infamous BBC. Terry, Smoopy and Gene doing what they do best.

Manhattan by water.

The Brooklyn Bridge.

A long way down from the top of the rock.

@Jaws: Sometimes all you can do is laugh, if not you're going to start crying!

To Gumby: Welcome to the crawl and I know you overdid it, but who cares right? Beats living in a coffee cup. I like the shelves behind this bar, is that glass? Turkey burger,,,,wow, that's a kick, health kick, that is. You forgot to point out the tin ceiling. Finally,,to Tim Clack,,,best picture in my opinion is the one here the Brooklyn Bridge, perfect. Now to GUMBY!!

LOVED this one with Gumby! LOL! That turkey burger looks great and everyone at the bar seems nice and friendly. One thing though, is Gumby 21 years old?

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBarfly

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZioum Zioum The Chainsaw

OK ... this post is brilliant !!!

Good pix Clacky ! Too bad we couldn't meet Tiffany and get some good pix with your camera :(

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@Al: Glad you noticed the tin ceiling, I was operating on about four hours sleep last night and after a few beers I was as out of it as Gumby!

@Barfly: Gumby's got a fake I.D., but don't tell anyone!

@ZioumZioum: Where have you been hiding? To Ostrich Ass and the Jesus Hole!

@GENE: Thanks! One night when I have extra time I need to go get more pictures of Tiffany!

November 21, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

Good to see Gumby finally joining you!
But the ittle fucker still can't hold his booze.
Now I'll have to watch out favorite clip again.
This shit's rrrrrrough!

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter"Boris"

Howdy Gumby! Glad to see you tied one on you crazy rubber bastard! Where the fuck is Pokie the horse?....Horse?....he'd be out on a guy walks into 365 shooting galleries! Rim Fucking Shot!! Boom Boom!!!
Glad you took him out Marty, but I agree, he does tend to cramp the style. Great burger.
Now I'm hungover and awake at 6am. Why oh why!?

@Gene: Tiffany would have fogged up the lense.
@Barfly: Isn't gumby something like 50 years or older? He was old when I was a kid.

Back to the coffee mug for you, Gumby.

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClacky Downunder

Ahahahahahhahahah! Gumby sure looks like he had a great time on the crawl!

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermeleah rebeccah

I heard Gumby fell down and broke his hip going out to the mailbox to get his social security check...but he bounced right back.

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

Welcome back to the crawl, Zioum Zioum, I've been reading your facebook posts concerning Nicolas Zarkosy...you must have a dossier as thick as the Paris phonebook by now...and all of it X-rated at that! Moahahahahahaaaaaaaa!!!

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

@"Boris": As we've always said, the best clip on YouTube!

@Clacky Downuder: Up at 6am? That's usually when I'm going to bed!

November 21, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

@Clacky Downunder: You're right, pretty sharp for 6 in the morning!

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBarfly

Love Gumby the sidekick! Notice he hangs out with an absinthe label, that stuff is pure evil! Like the tin ceiling and the copper bar. Utah has the worlds largest copper mine, maybe it started here :)

Great pics Clacky! Good looking cheeseburger. I had a wonderful bbq buffalo burger last night. With dooce! I know, its gonna take me awhile to get over that. No computer to write about it yet though :(

Sorry you have to work today. Lame. Hope you at least find a relaxing bar to end the night at.

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkari

@kari: I can't wait to read about your meeting with Dooce! How cool!

November 21, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

Gumby is a great guy! The night wouldn't be the same without him!!!! =)

Good bonus photos!!!

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

@365: Yeah I'm a bit dusty today and the mercury is rising. I had to give Shan a lift to work
and watch the old Football. I love a good horse joke.

@Kari: I'm not sure what part of the world you are but if you're in NY you've gotta try the mac and cheese burger from burger shoppe down on Water street in the Financial District. Brilliant.
Check out last saturdays cheeseburger post.

November 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfitzy

@fitzy: Cheers to Gumby! Hey did you send me any of t;he Barry info? My email was fucked up for a day last week and I hope it didn't get lost. Let me know, mate. I'm off to bar # 216 now!

November 21, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

@marty, sorry mate i have been trying for ten days to get some promo pics of Barry & his doll...we moved him out of the maximum security wing 10 days ago, into a bigger yard with a bigger tree for him...well that yard was'nt big enough for tha littl' bastard, out of the 10 days he has broken out 8 times, still in the main hospital compound, but he has heaps of huge arse trees to play in now...which both me & me boss thinks is pretty cool (even though the dickhead fell out of a tree on sat, i shit bricks when it happened, he fell about 4meters just being a lazy prick, luckily he landed on his head so he was ok... i got in there to make sure he was alright & helped him up to a lower fork in the tree, which he then proceeded to try & piss on me!!!) we just leave his yard gate open & he comes & goes as he pleases.....so its just a waiting game for the littl' shit to come down low enough & i'll get the shots....i'll keep you posted mate....
