The Mad Hatter used to be a fun place to watch NYR games. There's also a small bar that used to be called The Gaf on 85th between 2nd & 3rd. Now it's the "backroom bar" of a restaurant on 2nd. Dorian's on 2nd, too.

The Auction House (if it's still around) is where a lot of players used to hang out. But, I believe I'm seriously dating myself here.

You really are dating yourself. The Mad Hatter has been gone for at least 7 years now. The Auction House was big Ranger hangout in '94 (I don't think they have TVs there).

I've spent many a night in Dorian's. But not for a while.

I was at auction house last weekend, it's pretty chilled out but there is only one tv and it's from 1986.

Wow, the Hatter's been gone that long? There's a good Irish pub kind of place where Hurricane Island used to be, but that's down in the 70s. 73rd and 3rd or so?

Dorian's. I am sure they will have drink specials, and it's so dark in there no one will recognize you. I think it's the corner of 85th & 2nd.

i was going to try and get last minute tickets to the game, but looks like it'll be a stinker..
