A surf-themed bar two blocks from Times Square might sound like something you wouldn’t even wish upon your least-favorite coworker - but it also might be fun, depending on what kind of mindset you’re in. If you want to drink something cheap and maybe play beer pong while you stare at a portrait of Patrick Swayze on the wall, go for it. This is a good place to relieve some stress after a day spent in cubicle on 52nd Street.
