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.
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.
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. http://www.newyorkbeverage.com/
