We'll visit 3 bars with a strong literary, theatrical and artistic connection. We'll take you back in time to see Times Square in a whole new light: through the work of the writers, artists, actors, journalists and even gangsters that created the Mystique of New York, helped shape the city of New York we love, and who transformed Times Square into the most famous Square in the world. (No offense to Red, Tiananmen or Piccadilly) We'll inspire you with recitations of some of the great works of literature created here. And we'll share a drink with you along the way! Add some charmingly dashing guides, and a buttload* of wit, this is a tour not to miss! *buttload is an actual unit of measurement for alcohol. 1 buttload= 126 Gallons or 2 hogshead.
We've been leading literary pub crawls and walking tours in New York City for over 20 years. We are actors, writers, poets, librarians and connoisseurs of a well crafted drink. We're passionate for the material, and beyond the stories and legends we also perform snippets of their work. We bring a whole new insight into the neighborhood, showing you the artists, writers, actors and gangsters that helped shape the city. We'll show you the city in an entirely unique and inspiring way. And you'll get a drink to boot!
We'll meet at the iconic Sardi's Restaurant, the ultimate Theater Bar and the birthplace of the Tony's. From there we'll visit 2 other cultural pubs that captured the spirit of the 1920's-1940's, the glamorous Speakeasy scene, and the artistic pulse of the nation.
