That pierogi-flipping East Village hallmark Veselka will celebrate its 60th anniversary tomorrow and to honor the occasion, the round-the-clock Ukranian diner is going back in time—well, at least the prices are. Starting at 6pm on July 23, the restaurant will dial back to its 1954 menu, doling out coffee for a dime, 60-cent borscht, $1 cheese blintzes and other discount eats, but only for 54 minutes. Yes, that means you only have until 6:54 to feast on all the crispy, for-a-nickle potato pancakes you want. Check out the full menu below and start working up your dining strategy:
