Getting together with friends is tough. No one’s on the same schedule in this city, and everyone’s got their own ideas of how to have fun. Once in a while, however, when the shot glasses are aligned, your best friends, the men who’ve seen you through some serious highs and incredible lows, will be called upon to assemble and debark on an adventure into the inebriated universe of New York.
Ideally, whenever one these Guy’s Nights are declared, there’s hardly any discern between routes which usually leads to an overwhelming cluelessness about the city that’ll leave your motley crew high and dry and ultimately bored. Keep an open mind about where the night may take you, but take a look at these great spots that'll make sure this special occasion isn't bogged down by any lack of plans.
