365 Merchandise


The Mission

What's Going On?

What I'm going to do here is go to 365 bars in 365 days, drink, eat, meet people, take photos and then everyday I'll put up a post about my latest adventure. It's going to be a virtual bar crawl around and beyond New York City and you're more than welcome to come along. To quote Bluto Blutarsky, "It don't cost nothin."

Many people have told me that I'll never be able to do this, but in 2002 I wrote a book called 99 Beers Off The Wall (see the About Me section) where I went to 99 bars and drank 99 beers in the course of my seven day vacation from my night job. For that book I was averaging between 12 to 14 bars a day, so this is going to be a walk in a park for me. Well, technically a walk to a bar, but who's counting? Oh, wait, I am, counting to 365 to be exact. Never mind.

The Rules:

1. I must spend at least one hour in a bar every every day for 365 days in a row.

2. If, for whatever reason I miss a day, then I start all over.

3. I have to have at least three drinks in the bar.

4. I will put up a posting of the bar the day after, usually in the afternoon or early evening.

5. I won't repeat any bars except on the 365th day, when I may or may not return to my favorite bar of the adventure.

Okay, that's it, I hope you join me in this adventure, who knows what will happen? Bookmark the site and check back daily for updates. Tell your friends, family, pets and imaginary beings that you share spirits with. Cheers!

I wish we had bars as cool as the Shrunken Head in my area. If you liked the scene in Thelma and Louise where Gina Davis was nearly raped, you'll love the bars in my neck of the woods. I know you read my book, Marty, so you've probably got some idea.

This is a great idea! I know that I could never accomplish such a task. Hey at some point I should come up there and check out one those bars with you!

Shit, Marty! I sent a substantial donation to your beer fund about 5 minutes ago and you STILL haven't mentioned my new book at http://www.lulu.com,. entitled "Chicken's Butts and Coconuts"( now, an ebook but soon in paperback) Yes, I know you bought my first book a few days ago but what have you done for me lately? Fuckhead! I still say 99 Beers is the funniest book I've ever read and your new website carries on the legacy superbly! God you're funny! Manny Daness

Are you ok Marty? Are you still holed-up in the Wharf still? God forbid that you have to start this over again after Day 10.

Hey, Barra-Barra-Barra! I'm not only okay, I'm up to bar 16!

Wallbanger, I NEED to go to the"gingerbread" bar wit you when I arrive in New York around 2012. If the destruction of the whole wide worm comes first, cancel our reservation! Manny

Hey Marty,

It's James the co-founder of www.barspyder.com I wanted to sponsor your last night in nyc. I am also breaking a guinness book of world records for the most bars visited in a 24 hour period. I hope to hear back from you soon. And can't wait to slam some back with you and talk bars of nyc.

Hi James, Let me know when you're in town and we'll knock back a couple!

You DO know about the New Yorker who a few years back did a thousand bars in a year, don't you?

@Chuck: Oh yeah, I know all about that guy, he left comments all over the place after I got written up in the Daily News. I think he thinks he invented the idea of bar crawling and blogging. Half of his blog isn't documented with photos. I applaud his efforts, too bad he's an asshole. He even left a comment here, under a different name of course, I knew it was him by his IP address, he said that I looked like I was paralyzed. What a fucking creep. I emailed him but he was too much of a pussy to email me back.

Searching for good hockey instructors and additionally tennis luxury motor coaches is very difficult. The the greater part are an ancient college or graduating players so, who look modestly good joining a pitch, but experience little legitimate teaching feel. www.scorespro.com
