Beer Run around Times Square

I'm helping out a friend who is hosting a Super Bowl Party at a hotel on 47th and B'way. Would anyone be able to recommend a supermarket nearby to pick up beer so he doesn't have to pay over $10 per six pack in a deli? Maybe one that even will deliver? I'm thinking 8th or 9th Ave vicinity. I seem to remember one up in the 50's somewhere. Thanks in advance.

  1. there's a food emporium at 49th and 8th. It is, in my opinion, one of the world's worst supermarkets, but there is a decent beer selection that is (at least comparably) reasonably priced, with a few halfway decent beers like yuengling for under 6 bucks a 6 pack.

    1. Beer selection is what matters. One could only hope they stock up for Sunday. Thanks so much!

      1. There is a supermarket on 8th Ave and maybe 52nd/53rd/54th. It's on the south west corner of whichever block that is. I can't remember if it's a Gristedes, or a Sloan's (are they still in business), or whatever.

        OH! There IS a Food Emporium on 49th and 8th.

        Alternately, if you're buying a large quantity (eg 3 cases), NY Beverage delivers (I don't think it's free), but they charge wholesale prices.

        1. Fresh Direct will also deliver beer to you as well as a party platter for the game.
