True Blood Season Three is…well… about as bloody, gory, sexy and fang-tastic as vampires get. For die-hard fans, missing new episodes on Sunday night, well, bites (pun intended). So, if you’re traveling to or through NYC during episode-time and you’re just dying to catch True Blood, swing by Professor Thoms’ Bar & Restaurant on 2nd Avenue and 14th Street in NYC to watch for free.
True Blood at Thoms’:
Head upstairs to the lounge on the second floor, a.k.a. “the Loft”. With a unique saloon-like atmosphere, Professor Thoms’ has several HDTVs mounted on the walls, and don’t worry, you’ll catch every word thanks to their surround sound system.
Quick tip: Arrive before 8:30 p.m. to score chairs because the space fills up quickly.
Grab A Bite:
Check out the extensive menu of appetizers or food if you’re hungry. Professor Thoms’ boasts a full dinner menu with everything from a Cobb salad to a chicken sandwich. If you like to snack while you watch True Blood, check out the starters portion of the menu. Each starter feeds 2-3 people. Pattys’ pick: order the Nachos de Tomas. You’ll get a huge tray full of chips, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and jalapenos. $8.95
Quench Your Thirst:
Professor Thoms’ has a full bar upstairs so if you’re a cocktail person, this is the place for you. If your drink of choice is draught beer or cider, Professor Thoms’ has a unique menu of fruit beers, regular beers, and draught cider for the tasting. Patty’s pick: Try the Ephemere Apple beer, 12 oz. at $6. Made from Granny Smith and McIntosh apples, this beer is the perfect refreshing summer drink. Not into fruit beer? Radeberger is a safe bet– a crisp German Pils with a tangy aroma, $6.
