For traditionalists, today marks our “Tin” Anniversary. That’s right, Jimmy’s No. 43 is celebrating 10 years of a very long strange trip (hurricanes, explosions – four major shutdowns over the years). Mostly, we’re just super grateful to everyone who has supported us over the past decade, making Jimmy’s No. 43 one of the best gastropubs in the US (we always love it when travelers stop by because they heard about us back home!).
In a place like NYC “survival is the new success…” and we’ve more than survived: We’ve thrived thanks to the many patrons and special guests who frequent our establishment. So, tonight, rather than a crazy party, we’re just doing what we do best – and love to do – bringing a trio of killer beer makers from Oregon (The Commons Brewery, Gigantic Brewing Company, and Occidental Brewing Company) along with a couple book authors (Christian DeBenedetti and Andrea Slonecker, signing copies of their new book, Beer Bites) for a meet and greet that will go on until late this evening.
Of course, we’ll have plenty of food from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 (cool video about us shopping at the Union Square Greenmarket), including several “Lechon” whole roast pigs on tonight’s menu. If you can’t join us, you can show your 10th Anniversary love by buying a gift certificate (our backroom is also available for your holiday parties starting with Halloween in a couple weeks).
And you never know who might stop by to wish us happy anniversary, so keep your eyes peeled for celebrity guests.
Tin foil hat optional!
