No Idea: Where Everybody Knows I'm Lame

Today's lesson: Ass-kissing really does pay off.

A few days ago we posted a rant about lawsuits regarding "Ladies Night" promotions. On the subject of drink specials, I mentioned how much we love No Idea, home of the infamous Name Night:

There's a bar in Manhattan, that we happen to love, called No Idea. They offer an ingenious promotion called "Name Night". Each night is assigned a name (chosen semi-randomly) and if that's your name - you drink for free from 5:00-11:00. So far they haven't chosen my name (hint hint, hope you guys are reading this) but the ESC has gone to many a name night with friends. So should I sue them for discriminating against me because I'm not named Edna (7/25/07) or Steve (7/09/07)? Of course not, because I'm not a complete moron and/or asshole.

Now I wrote that out of our true love and admiration for No Idea, not because I wanted to sucker them into adding my name to their calendar. Honestly.

I love going there regardless of whose name it is because it's just a really cool place. As far as NYC bars go, the prices are pretty decent even if it's not your name (four words: pint sized mixed drink). I've heard people refer to No Idea as a "dive bar" (a phrase I usually take to mean "dirty") but at No Idea it simply means that the bar is without pretension and attitude. They have a pool table and a generally entertaining mix of people drinking their faces off. There's a reason why I make all my friends aware of it when their names pop up on the calendar... (it's not just benevolence)... it's because I enjoy going there so I'll take any opportunity to drag a friend there with me.

However, all that aside, I do like to drink for free, so I was not above sending them a link to the blog letting them know I wrote it... and blatantly asking them to reward my kind words with free beer.

Yes, I am that pathetic. The good news? They said yes. So expect a gushing (but totally truthful) review of the evening in about a month. Based on our previous nights spent at No Idea, I'm pretty sure we'll at least get some new material for Dumb Things Guys Say.

You can't be free booze! If I could only use my blog to get free alcohol the world would be a perfect place.
