Birthday Help

I'm having a get together for my birthday this Saturday, and would like suggestions of where to bring a small group of friends. We are of the "Congee Village" and "Sammy's Roumanian" type for get-togethers, but we have already done both of those for birthdays and need something new.

Any fun, unique, divey, good-snackin' places to go to?

  1. Right off the top of my head: Silk Road Palace (aka Chinese free wine). It is decent-to-good non-descript Chinese food and unlimited free wine. The crowd is boisterous and the atmosphere is celebratory. It certainly makes for a fun, unique, divey and even good-snackin' experience. I had my own birthday there recently and was surprised by how much we all enjoyed ourselves having previously thought that free wine Chinese would be bad.

    1. What about Korean BBQ? I like Shilla and Seoul Garden on 32nd St, between 5th & 6th Aves.
