Thursday, July 22nd, 2010—Bar 193

Day 193—Wednesday, July 21st, 2010
Jeremy's Ale House

Okay, let’s take care of a little business first. “Boris” has been busy at the old 365 store and he’s come up with a brand new red logo and it’s now available on all the shirts and some of the merchandise. Check it out here: The 365 Bar Store.

I really want to thank everybody who’s bought shirts and products, I appreciate it and hope you enjoy the 365 merchandise.

And I also want to thank “Boris” for putting the whole thing together. Remember that “Boris” is available for freelance artwork, so if you have a website and you need some banner art or a logo, he’s your go-to guy. “Boris” can also design your CD or book cover and do just about anything when it comes to art/design. Just send me an email and I’ll give your request to “Boris.”

And speaking of merchandise, my friend Joe Freedman (who designed both of my books) has come up with the coolest thing in the world. It’s a password encoder called Mr. Mistifiki. With this device you can generate passwords for websites that you’ll never forget. I’m going to let Joe explain it over at his website, click on the link and check it out: Mr. Mistifiki at Leaf Design.

Okay, now on to the business of bars. Mark Smimmo sent me an email and suggested I go to the Blarney Stone on Third the other day and it was one of the best times on the bar crawl yet. So when I got an email from him telling me that Jeremy’s Ale House, down in the South Street Seaport is a fantastic bar, it’s a no-brainer, it’s off to Jeremy’s Ale House we go. Taxi!

And we're off. It's hotter than shit out and of course he says his air conditioning is broke, so my head is out the window trying to cool off.

After one long-ass taxi ride we're here on the block. Hey look, it's bar number 68, Nelson Blue. Let's pop in and see if Pauli is working tonight.

A blast from the bar crawl past: Pauli along with added bonus of the lovely bartender, Melissa!

Pauli poured out a couple of shots for the reunion. Cheers!

Okay, back to bar-crawling business. Here we are at Jeremy's Ale House.

Wow, it's a big room in here. Let's mosey up to the bar.

And general manager, Milton serves up a tall 32 ounce stryofoam cup of Budweiser. The cups may not keep Al Gore happy, but they keep the beer cold, so fuck Al Gore.

Marco and Timmy were also behind the bar. Timmy worked for years in the printing industry, so we had a long talk about the terror of working in that industry that I'm still stuck in.

Milton not only served me up a giganzo beer, he gave me this bumper sticker.

Here's Rebecca, Jeremy and Jessica. Jeremy bartends at legendary Sardi's in Times Square and I think we'll be seeing him soon on the bar crawl. Stay tuned.

Here's the house mascot, the moose on the wall along with some discarded bras and knick-knacks.

There's a picnic styled booth in the back to sit at.

There's various photos, reviews and press articles splattered all over the front wall.

Lots of tables and chairs off to the side of the bar.

Saiju and Tim were celebrating Saiju's 23rd birthday. Happy birthday, Saiju! I don't remember 23, but then I don't remember last night either.

Jessica pointed out graffiti on the ceiling from her niece Amy and Amy's husband Charlie.

Milton at work at the bar.

This makes me think of the old Ed Head cartoons from Playboy. Anybody else?

The extensive food menu.

And the drink list to wash your food down with.

Here's the back room of the bar. Let's go see who these two hooligans are.

It's Mike and Matt who were working on their third round of buckets. Impressive!

I always like to see a pay phone in a bar, it means it's patrons aren't cell phone junkies. Okay it's midnight and Jeremy's closes at midnight on weeknights. Hey, they open up at 8 in the morning, so cut them some slack!

But Nelson Blue is still open, so I have a shot with Pauli and his crew. Goodnight everybody!

Review
Jeremy’s Ale House is a big airplane hanger-like dive bar in the heart of the South Street Seaport. The bar has been in various locations in this neighborhood since 1974 and owner Jeremy Holin calls it, 'the oldest established permanent floating saloon in New York.” The bar itself is somewhat dwarfed by the room in the bar, there’s tables, booths, bras and graffiti on the ceilings and TV sets here and there. The bartenders are talkative and friendly and the crowd is a mix of fishermen and construction workers in the morning and daytime to finance workers, tourists and locals in the evening.

There’s a full bar at Jeremy’s with a good selection of bottled beers and drafts, but everyone comes here for the 32 ounce styrofoam buckets of beer for six bucks. It’s not politically correct packaging, but after a couple you really don’t give a rats ass, so who cares? Happy hour runs from 4pm to 6pm with half price well drinks, $1.50 Jr. Burgers and 4 dollar buckets of Coors and Coors Light. Jeremy’s also has a kitchen with a large menu ranging from the usual suspects such as buffalo wings, cheese fries and several styles of nachos to burgers, hot dogs and a Philly cheese steak sandwich. There ‘s also a large selection of seafood including: crab cakes, calamari, oysters, marinated tuna steak and their specialty, clams.

And if you’re an early riser, Jeremy’s has an 8am to 10am special featuring 32 ounce buckets of Coors for two bucks a throw. A nice way to greet the day, indeed!

Goddamn, those are big beers! Fuck Al Gore and long live Jeremy's! And nice to see you flashing back on the crawl at Nelson Blue!

There's a bar in New Brighton Minnesota that has a virtual forrest of braziers hanging from the ceiling, something having to do with an initiation rite that all the regulars there submit to. The place has the same 'Animal House' decor and atmosphere as Jeremy's Ale House. Always used to be one of my favorite places to pick up fares in my cab!

Great looking joint with a good atmosphere.
The Styrofoam cups are a nice touch.
Although they need a signed Women's 365 shirt hanging from the ceiling.
(in any color)
Cool on the Nelson Blue reunion.
A lot of paths have crossed in almost 200 nights.
Great job Daddio!
We'll have to try and get in touch tonight or tomorrow.
And Joe Freedman does it again!
His products never cease to amaze me.

P.S. Great work on the store Boirs!

Awesome shirts "Boris"
You are truly talented.

Fuck Al Gore.
I love styrofoam.
especially in the microwave

Nice collection of Biff Brazoonies on the ceiling! Remind me to show up the next time Biff is in town! A few blocks down from that bar is a place called Stinky's Tap.....They have a nice selection of my old boxer shorts pinned on the walls.....I'm sure Biff would love it!

Jeremy's looks like an ok place. I do not like drinking from a styrofoam cup. I didn't like the white ceiling with the bras and graffiti, though I do understand it if its for breast cancer awareness, Sort of a rec room feel to the place, like a college beer bar. But its just my opinion and im sure other posts here will say they like it. When I go out for a beer/cocktail I want a little civility, like a glass or a cold mug, even right out of the bottle is better than styrofoam.

Love the new red logo "Boris". I went to the most beautiful bar last night. Whole thing was a log cabin, I was so in heaven. This bar is lacking some wood. Just saying. But if you're ever in Utah, I now know where to send ya.

Hey! Professor's up early today! I was just gonna say that next time I need a new bra, I'm simply going to head to Jeremy's and take one off the ceiling. I suppose I'll have to put down my beer first, though. You can't hold a styrofoam cup with your teeth. Breaks right off. I'd also put my beer down for fried clams. And, no, that's not code. I seriously love fried clamstrips. And no one has 'em anymore! I hope Jeremy's serves theirs with tartar sauce. I'll be in in a couple of months to find out. And I know exactly how to get there, because you go to Stinky's Tap and then run as fast as you can to the left.

July 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBiff

@Al: I was skeptical of the styrofoam cups till I got there. The reason for them is it keeps the beer ice cold and you need that when you're drinking a 32 ounce cup.

@Biff: I think Professor Dungpie's on vacation, which means he probably hasn't been to bed yet. Probably on his 1572nd beer of the week.

Jeremy’s Ale House looks like a very fun place to hang out and enjoy a brew or two....or five. But I am not leaving my bra there.

July 22, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

Been here many times .... always fun ! Good stop !

July 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@al: the styrofoam cups do keep beer cold a long time. a friend of mine swears by it. looks like a good party hearty bar. and cool of you to stop back to paulis place!

July 22, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrita r.

none of the bras on the ceiling will fit me... just saying...

July 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGidget

Is everyone drinking beer out of styrofoam cups?? I mean, I guess I'd do it- but I wouldn't like it. Okay, I'm lying. I'd totally still like it- but I have a habit of picking apart styrofoam cups, so my beer would probably all spill out.

July 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSuzRocks

"This is like deja vu all over again."-y berra...sorry couldn't resist...damn another cab ride and 365 hasn't been prodded with any objects...can understand the styrofoam but i prefer my 365 mug...KOC

NIce work again my mate.

What's with going to the NZ bar, and not heading to an Aussie Bar? Meet up with some true blue dinky-die deadset legends! (ie. really cool guys).

Another Aussie Bar is due my mate. Don't tell me there isn't more than one in the whole on New York!

As always, looking forward to the next instalment. To Marty, and the rest of the commenters here - have a great weekend - I'll throw a shimp on the barbie for you (not that we actually do that here).
