Protesting the global hegemony of monied interests down in the Financial District is bound to make you hungry, and you can only scream "CAPITALIST WHORE" so many times before you need to wet your whistle. Thankfully, Luke's Lobster's on William Street downtown has you seafood-inclined dissident's covered. A newly-acquired liquor license has allowed them to start pouring suds for the first time today, just as Craft Beer Week arrives. Beers are just $4-5, nowhere near Cipriani prices.
For those who desire an actual meal before they spend an untold period of time living in a tent and guzzling Spaghetti-Os, from now until September 25, the location is offering a $30 three-course beer pairing dinner from Peak Organic. A rep tells us, "We'll pair our chowder with a Peak Amber Ale, our rolls with Peak Pale Ale, and our whoopie pie with Peak Nut Brown Ale." No word on whether you'll get a complimentary copy of Das Kapital with your check.
