Appetizers and Drinks on a Budget?

I am going out on Saturday night with a friend. We decided to do drinks and appetizers to keep the prices down. We dont mind eating at the bar and thought it would be a fun change from a whole dinner...any ideas? Any neighborhood goes but we are typically a downtown crew.

    We recently had a quick snack (split a burger) with drinks at Fatty Cue's bar, which was fun. We also enjoy doing some apps and wine at the bar at Otto, though it can get very busy.

    1. How about those Japanese Izakaya in east village?
      Village yokocho or Yakitori Taisho...or Kenka...great food and cheap beer by pitcher.
      or at a place like The bourgeois pig for some fondue and wine.
