After a successful Kickstarter raised more than $2,000, roommates Matt and Viviana have officially opened the Tonya Harding Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum…in their apartment hallway! We just had to check it out for ourselves, and we liked what we saw. If you want to see it in person, make an appointment online, or check out some of our other favorite free museums in NYC.
The Wicked Monk
Once you step into this Bay Ridge pub, you’re transported to County Cork. The Wicked Monk is adorned with the original stained glass and wood fixtures from the 18th-century Greenmount Monastery chapel in Ireland. To keep with the Irish theme, order a slab of warm shepherd’s pie ($21) or platter of crispy fish and chips ($17). The menu isn’t just favorites from the Emerald Isle, though. The Wicked Monk serves up everything from pulled pork quesadillas ($11) to Philly cheesesteak mac and cheese ($17) to mussels steamed in white wine ($12). And that’s just for dinner—stop by for brunch to sample a full Irish breakfast with black and white puddings ($15) or challah French toast with mascarpone cream and berries ($11). Of course, we’d be remiss to not mention the drinks. Whether you’re in the mood for a specialty cocktail or a pint, the bartender can surely help you out.
