It’s easy to make an ass of yourself at this UWS beer bar, especially on Thirsty Thursdays, when $15 gets boozers unlimited house liquor or bottomless pitchers of Coors Light. Despite the frat-house vibe and dorky decor (think theme-appropriate donkey images), most nights draw a neighborly, after-work crowd ready to down a pint of Killian’s and catch a game on the big screen. There are plenty of arcade diversions, a pool table and air hockey, so drinkers who work up an appetite find the connected diner—Homer’s Famous Malt Shop—particularly appealing.
