[UPDATE: It’s happening! Wednesday, July 23 from 6pm to 6:54pm, per Veselka’s Twitter account]
Keep some change in your pocket after those nickel cocktails, because we’ve got more throwback prices for ya. East Village staple Veselka is celebrating their 60th anniversary with a throwback to 1954, [h/t New York Observer] featuring their original menu and prices! And back in the day, nothing was priced over $1.60 (the highest item being bigos and mashed potatoes), a big change from a $14 brunch plate accompanied by an infamous wait on Sunday mornings…
Coffee and coke will cost a dime, egg creams will run you a quarter, and their famous potato pancakes cash in at 50 cents.
So yeah, the deal feels more like a social media ploy, but when the cost of a meal is less than a subway swipe, we’re down to party like it’s 1954.
