Line Dancing and Breakup Joints

by Brittany Geragotelis

You'd think that it would be easy to find a place in NYC that serves great BBQ and offers a night of line-dancing....I mean, it's New York City for God-sakes! The place that has something for everyone—and the weirder the better. So why was I practically pulling my hair out after starting my search for a venue for my friend Tammy's B-day party?

Anyway, as I was trolling the listings for southern BBQ places to see if they offered any kind of country dancing night, I was also perusing the comments from patrons for each place I looked at. Most were the standard, "This place sucks," or "My favorite restaurant in the city," but then I stumbled upon this gem for a joint called Rodeo Bar:

If you're looking to take someone to a crowded bar to get them drunk and then break up with them this place is perfect. Sip some beers and eat some free peanuts while you try and work things out, even though you know its over—If you're lucky, therell be some depressing country song playing in the background which can add to the overall experience.
  • Pros: Free Nuts in your mouth
  • Cons: Not enough napkins

Hmmm, maybe we'll check this place out after all....

Some of my friends who are musicians have played at Rodeo Bar.

Never been there, but I bet it's cool.

For the best BarBQ, I'd say Hill Country on 23rd. So authentic it's like stepping into Texas.

Oops, I didn't even read the comment of that poor person!
