Since Sheepshead Bites staffers have been barred from attending the Russian Dolls premiere party at Rasputin (I wonder why), we decided to have a little fun ourselves.
Sheepshead Bites has teamed up with Beer Saloon – the bar closest in proximity to Rasputin – to throw an impromptu premiere party. And, no, it’s not necessarily to celebrate this bit of horrific television programming – it’s more to get together, have some fun and bounce reactions off one another.
After all, why would we celebrate a show that the New York Times reviewed by saying, “If the Soviet authorities had wanted to torture Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn beyond endurance, they would have forced him to watch ‘Russian Dolls.'” Oof, that’s got to sting.
Well, good or bad, revolting or alluring – we’re packing into Beer Saloon to enjoy the show on their numerous big screen TVs.
And to help numb the pain of watching the show, Beer Saloon is offering our readers a buy-one-get-one-free draft beer special.
So come on down and raise a glass of one of Beer Saloon’s many premium draft choices as we watch the television apocalypse unfold before our eyes!
Festivities begin at 9:30 p.m. There is no cost for admission. Must be 21+.
Beer Saloon is located at 1188 Gravesend Neck Road, corner of Sheepshead Bay Road. In addition to beverages, Beer Saloon has a full dinner menu.
(FYI: Beer Saloon is a SMALL place. First come, first serve!)
