Whether you have opinions on mosaic versus cascade hops or you don’t know IBUs from IPAs, check out Gebhard’s. They have a bunch of beers on tap that you definitely won’t find on the shelves at Whole Foods, and the dark space works well for a low-key drink with a couple friends. If you don’t feel like staring into pint glasses and wondering about fermentation processes, you can play darts or foosball instead.

Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
