Birthday parties are the best, except for the whole having to choose a gift or, even worse, split a check at some awful overpriced birthday dinner. We have great news for you though, because for once a birthday at a restaurant doesn’t have to involve painfully split checks and endless fractions. Veselka (144 2nd Ave, East Village) is having their 60th birthday bash and they want all their friends to come celebrate with free hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and champagne.
The East Village mainstay is removing all their tables and having a big cocktail party next Monday, November 3, from 6pm-11pm. They can hold up to 150 people at a time and if you can arrive on the earlier side (before 8) you won’t have to wait as long to get in. They encourage party hats, and since we’re such fans of birthday parties where we get the gifts, we’ll gladly bring ours.
