FRIDAY AT 5PM: VILLAGE IDIOT REUNION!

https://www.facebook.com/events/739414359515434/


It’s that time again! The kind-of annual Village Idiot Reunion! It may have closed its doors in 2004, but we are getting the Regulars together again. We will gather at Doc Holliday’s, the only remaining country-music-playing honky tonk left in Manhattan. Cheap beer and whiskey all night long!

Our hostess is Joanna (and Christina) who’s been behind the bar for two decades. The party begins at 5pm and continues all night. Spread the word to your friends and all former customers and bartenders from the Idiot. The party is Friday, August 28!

FOLLOWING "THE VILLAGE IDIOT REUNION PARTY" is Jenna and Catherine's LAST DUO shift together. Jenna is moving over to DBA one of our owner's other bars in the hood, and Catherine shall depart, journeying to other horizons. Please come celebrate and congratulate and bid adieu...They will both be in the hood though, so I'm sure it's not goodbye....8pm 'til close this Friday!

DOC HOLLIDAY'S REGULAR OF THE WEEK: ALYSHA

Where did you grow up?
All over the place. Dubai then a year in New Jersey, then Frankfurt and a year in Florence before I came here. Still growing up, I'm by far the baby of the crew. 

1st memory of Doc's:
Don't remember much to be honest! I first started coming here after closing Hop Devil with a few coworkers a couple times a week. I remember just having shot after shot and getting more vitriolic about rude customers (Doc's patrons: read the signs along the back end of the bar before you act like a fool!)

First time at Doc's: 
Again, just chilling with fellow bartenders. I remember Jenna was my first bartender! 

Fave jukebox song: 
That Certain Female...pretty sure it's on CD 26 

Favorite Doc's memory: 
Meeting a couple guys and one from a particularly conservative country. The first conversation we had was about how a performing a certain sex act didn't make you gay and this dude could NOT wrap his head around it. 

What I like most about Doc's:
Regulars and bartenders who can shoot the shit. It's really nice to be able to come in anytime, right at opening or at midnight, and see a friendly face that I can chill with. 

THE DRINK SPECIAL: THE EXOTIC DIVE DEAL:  A can of Rolling Rock plus a shot of house whiskey, large glass of ice water on the side: $7 (excluded during happy hour)

DOC HOLLIDAY'S REGULAR OF THE WEEK: KT 

1. Where did you grow up?

Tallahassee, Florida. Wait, is this a trick question? Docs!

2. What's your 1st memory or experience with alcohol.
I was told once that my parents were having a party and I kept going around asking for “sips pwease” from everyone’s beer..I think I was 3 or so..another is that my mom gave her her jack and coke by mistake when she brought me some gatorade. I took a sip of that by mistake and puked it EVERYWHERE. I still can not drink and HATE whiskey or bourbon to this day. 

3. Describe your first time at Doc Holliday’s?

I lived across the street, staggered in on a Sunday afternoon with one of my BFF’s, and got cut off at 8 PM by the night shift bartender…I’ve been coming back ever since.

4. Fav jukebox song at Doc Holliday’s.This changes constantly. But probably “I'd Have To Be Crazy” by Willie Nelson, “Shine” by Dolly Parton. Hank 3…there is so much to chose from. I have really grown to LOVE and know the jukebox over the years. I still manage to find something new. And anything on my CD [91!!].

5. What's your favorite Doc Holliday's story?

Its hard to pin point just ONE down, as there are so many gems through out the years. Here is a few…I promise they are all worth reading!

On a Friday night, when Joanna and a former bartender who will remain unnamed to protect the innocent cut some yuppies tie off when  [8???] years ago or so at the very beginning of the night. Though the guy was egging her on to do this, he got his panties all in a twist, and called the cops on her for “harassment” or something of that nature. I can’t remember the full details [fuzzy, drunk..you know…] But, Fun fact: the tie still hangs behind the bar and says “die yuppie scum” on it or something like that. Docs is not rowdy like that anymore. It’s MUCH more mellow these days. 

Annual Orphan’s Thanksgiving, a gazillion years ago. When “Chino grabbed Francine’s cookie”, as Jason Rosario put it. And Francine choked Chino out and slapped him for performing this act. Probably the best Thanksgiving I have ever had. 

Same bartender from the tie incident being so wasted that she rang $8.00 on the register and thought it was 8 PM and started yelling “last call”  when it was about 4 PM on a Sunday afternoon, and Joanna and Dave were also both sitting at the bar at the time, I believe. 

GRACIE!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

And one more: Mags doing the worm on-top of the bar towards myself and Eamon one random Wednesday night. I will never, ever, ever forget that. Easily a top 10 life moment. 

6. Explain what you like most about Docs? 

The regulars, the staff - old and new, Joanna, the jukebox. Gracie! Wine spritzers and tequila….mmm…………the fact that I can go to docs “alone” though i’m never really “alone”..the jukebox..tequila….GRACIE!

THE DRINK SPECIAL :

The Katie, “Caturday night special” - shot of patron silver and a wine spritzer in a pint glass [bring your own lemons for the spritz for refreshing goodness!] - does not have to be had together!
