quick version: i'm looking for a good east village bar on friday afternoon - cocktails or belgian beers preferred, for 1 and maybe later 2 people. any suggestions?
longer version: heading down to the city, most of my friends who are working can't get off work, are on long weekends, sick, etc. so i've got lunch with one at about 1230, another at wd-50 at 6, and i figured i'd check out chikalicious sometime around 3. i know i'll be stuffed, but i love wd, and want to check out chik...
my friend *may* be able to get downtown by 530, so we could grab a drink in LES near wd. similarly, since i'm popping into chikalicious solo, i'd like to either find another neat spot (non-foodie) to go to for an hour after chikalicious, or a bar that has the aforementioned nice cocktails or belgian beers. i know there's the place on west 5th near the basketball courts, which is cool, but i won't be over that side unless nothing else pops up.
sorry for the last minute posting...but any help would be appreciated. thanks!
