Drink of the Week

Long Island Iced Tea is infamous for its tendency to make drinkers pray to the porcelain god, and the Bank's version ($5) should only cement that reputation. By substituting Blue Curacao for Coke and then mixing it with the standard rum, gin, vodka, tequila, Triple Sec and sour mix, the Bank gives a mean spin to this drink, turning it electric blue in color and making it sweeter. Served shaken and on the rocks in a pint glass and garnished with a lemon wedge, this tasty cocktail is also known as "the Batman." So be careful: Like the caped crusader, it can sneak up on you.

The Bank is dark and smoky, with beer signs hanging from the ceiling, sports playing on big-screen TVs and classic rock and roll blaring from the jukebox, and it delivers more than knockout drinks. The establishment also specializes in cheap but tasty bar food, as well a wide assortment of games like pool, foosball, darts and pinball. And then there are the two daily happy hours -- from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and again from 10 p.m. to midnight -- when wine, wells, drafts and bottles are all two-for-one. With deals like that, you can bank on having a good time at the Bank.
