I've never been To NYC before but Colette has, which is hugely helpful if you want to know where sells Louboutins, or which shop is run by a Kardashian (anybody who doesn't know what either of those things are, I envy you), but not much help if you want to know where the best craft beer is served.
I must admit though, it is going to be a big advantage having somebody with me who's pounded the streets before and negotiated the subway, which incidentally, looks bloody baffling compared to the Tube.
We're staying in the Meatpacking district thanks to a great deal on booking.com, but I expect to be travelling all over Manhattan and Brooklyn over the course of the trip.
I've already got a bit of a wish list of places, mostly bars, BBQ and burger joints, but if anybody has any suggestions then I'm all ears. Leave your recommendations below guys.
P.s. Thanks must already go to Matt from North Bar and Mark from Pencil and Spoon for their help, and/or blogposts on New York beer bars.
