Take a cab, they'll pay your tab
Now, no matter where you live, you have no excuse not to party on the Upper West Side. From now until January 1, the uptown outpost of Villlage Pourhouse (932 Amsterdam Avenue between 108th and 109th streets) will match up to $25 in cab fare with a bar tab. If you are downtown and crave a change of scenery, just hop in a cab, and be sure to ask the driver for a receipt. Once you arrive, the bartender will start your tab with a credit for the same amount as your fare.
