Technically, I’m not sure whether or not we can call this a Super Bowl party, but given that Black Oak Nights is theoretically a “news” site, can’t we kind of say it is as part of our rights as journalists? I have no clue, but what I do know is that if you want to watch the “Big Game” on February 6 at 2011, then you better head over to Crash Mansion (199 Bowery Street, Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York City) for a Super Bowl party for the ages.

Alright, young, black professionals of Black Oak Nights! It’s time to take advantage of Thursday night, because after all, it’s already the second Thursday of the year, and we only have 50 more to go in 2011! Thus, you need to get your work done early, head over to your favorite after work spot, and enjoy an early weekend drink—compliments of your own sanity.
Seriously, don’t stay at work too long, because that mess will stress you out. Not to compare anybody’s job to that of the President’s, but have you seen how his head has went from black to old-man’s gray in just a matter of two years? It’s unbelievable! Don’t let that be you! You’re too young, and none of you have to put up with the stress Barack does—so stop choosing to do so! Just hit up your favorite bar, or check out one of the events below, and toast your first drink to staying young and avoiding the grays. Here is your Thursday Nightlife Rundown for January 13, 2011.

Of course, living in New York City and finding a place like that in Manhattan makes that a little bit more difficult for a young, black professional. Naturally, there are plenty of spots for black people in Harlem, but many of those tend to cater to a much older crowd. But having been in New York for quite some time now, I have managed to comb through many a bar in Manhattan, and I have a few spots worthy of regular attendance.
Here is our list of the Best Bars for young, black professionals in New York City. Read the rest of this entry »
