We here at Jimmy’s No. 43 are very proud to be part of the East Village Independent Merchants Association (owner Jimmy Carbone is President of EVIMA) and participating in LES History Month!
Four years ago, FABnyc and Downtown Art collaborated with LES cultural and community groups to launch the first neighborhood-wide celebration of the unique legacies of the Lower East Side. Now, this annual event involves more than 80 community groups and small businesses – including Jimmy’s No. 43 – all drawing attention to the contributions of immigrants, workers, artists and revolutionaries who shaped the LES.
Two key events this week:
Manhattan Sideways: A Photographic Journey Through the East Village – Wednesday, May 3rd opening reception with afterparty at Jimmy’s No. 43 – more info here
Taste of East 7th Street – Thursday, May 4th, through Sunday, May 7th, with 10 restaurants participating, including Jimmy’s No. 43 – more info and tickets here
We hope to see you at Jimmy’s No. 43 during Lower East Side History Month!

We’re welcoming you, our Craft Beer Family, to drop by in the coming days to celebrate some of our favorite ciders and beers of the season. Starting with a Meet the Cider Maker Event (Thursday, 4/13 at 6PM) featuring John Reynolds of Blackduck Cidery to building up our spring beer list that will feature some of our favorite sour beers.
We have a long history of great sours, but it has taken awhile for the public to catch on to these amazing brews.
Owner Jimmy Carbone remembers: “Back in 2006, we had a Cantillon Geuze from Belgium, and no one bought it. Two years ago, we received another keg and sold out in under three hours. April Sours lets us hand-select some of the best domestic and European sours on the market for a single tasting event.”
So if Lambics, Goses and sour beers are your favorites for spring, be sure to get your tickets for our annual April Sours, taking place on Saturday, April 29th (tickets here). You’ll sample 20+ beers with plenty of food offered alongside.
And if you’re looking for more to do as April Sours bring forth May Brunches, here are some more themes and events “on tap” here at Jimmy’s No. 43:
Cask Friday (Friday, April 14th, from 5PM) – tapping a cask of Fyne’s Maverick, a dark bitter from Scotland
