Well, it’s not the matchup that the media, the NBA, TheSportsWatchers.com or even most fans wanted to see, but it is the matchup we have been dealt. And we at Black Oak Nights Entertainment are dealing with it like any rational thinking person would: by drinking!
The Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Lakers will face off in the NBA Finals beginning this Thursday, June 4th at 9 P.M.
Game 1 will be on ABC and televised live from Los Angeles. However, you can still enjoy the action in an arena-like setting right here in New York City by joining the fine folks at Black Oak Nights for an evening of NBA basketball at the uptown Village Pourhouse.
That’s right, Black Oak Nights will be leading the troops to the Upper West Side to watch what promises to be an entertaining series between superstars Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard.
The Village Pourhouse (located at 982 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY) is the absolute perfect spot to enjoy this series.
They have plenty of televisions, and all of them are assured to be tuned to the NBA Finals, so you will never be too far away from the action.
The menu is full of bar delicacies and complete entrees that are sure to satisfy the hunger of most patrons.
I personally recommend the Smothered Hand Cut Fries, but that’s just one of the many incredibly exquisite appetizers and meals to choose from.
Thursday nights are also Trivia and Beer Pong Nights, and there will be $5 Jager Bombs, Car Bombs, Dr. Pepper Drops and Skittle Bombs from 10pm to midnight.
So come by this Thursday night with a slew of other young, black professionals, and check out what Village Pourhouse and the Upper West Side have to offer!
The game tips at 9pm ET, and Black Oak Nights and the crew should be arriving a half-hour or so before that to get situated in one of the booths (before it gets too crazy). Once again, Village Pourhouse is located at 982 Amsterdam Avenue, and it is between 108th and 109th Streets. Your best bet is to take the 1 train to 110th Street and Broadway and walk over 1 avenue to Amsterdam.
I will see you all on Thursday, and stay tuned for information on where we will be watching Game 2 of the series!
