I Went Down the Rabbit Hole… for a Great Beer

Once the playground of some of the greatest creative minds of the past century including Bob Dylan, Jack Kerouac, Jackson Pollock, Jimi Hendrix and more, MacDougal Street is now a place to grab cheap food and avoid (or pick up, depending on your level of desparation) NYU kids. Outside of…
