Friday night fun

Friday night I had a strong urge to visit the Ravari Room, a Columbus bar Paul and I frequented with friends to start many a weekend. Instead, we went to Pacific Standard.

We found this place when we were first looking around Brooklyn for a place to live. It was near our hotel and had just recently opened. It's about 20 or 30 minutes from our apartment now, near one of the major subway stops in Brooklyn.

They specialize in west coast beer and sports. Paul likes the different brews on tap. I like the wide assortment of board games. We monopolized Connect 4 for about an hour, and someone else asked for it from me before I could even return it to the bar. Rock'em Sock'em Robots also seemed to be a popular choice, and a lively game of Twister was happening at the entrance to the bar.

One thing we've quickly learned about bars in New York-- they're open until 4 a.m. That's why it's loud so late outside our apartment (although the cold weather has put a stop to most of that).


  1. That sounds like such a fun place! :) looks like they have movie nights too...

  2. we went to the ravari room on saturday with a friend of don's from school. It was the first time we had gone since we went with you guys for the last time. It was tasty, but I still lament the loss of the $5 pizza. Although we did find a parking spot easily.

  3. 4 a.m.???? OMG, that is awesome. Bars in Delaware close at 1 a.m.!!! 1 a.m.!!! Not like we're there all the time or anything, but it is annoying if we go to the beach for a weekend. In Annapolis, some of the bars close at midnight. Super lame!
