Cider Happy Hour at Equinox
Does anyone have intel on the cider happy hour at Equinox? I got the email from the restaurant saying that there were free apps and special hot cider cocktails. Sounds good to me. Anyone do it last year? is it packed? fun? let me know!

the housemade cider is hot, before they mix it into the cocktails. i did sip a cup of the cider by itself and it was very good, although not piping hot. the happy hour ends dec. 9 and then they switch to a chocolate-themed one, so i don't know if they're planning on switching to hot — i asked the bartender and he said last year the hot drinks weren't quite so popular.
