It's National Piña Colada Day, and if we're going to celebrate fake holidays, they might as well be ones that make us suck down trashy frozen cocktails. If you feel like celebrating, or just haven't felt that burn of brainfreeze recently, we've got some suggestions on where you can go.
DALLAS BBQ Hit up one of the many Dallas BBQ joints around the city—these guys really perfect the art of the trashy frozen drink, don't they? They aren't afraid to just go there with the test tube shot, either. Plus you can Texas size your boozy beverages for just $7.99. One Gothamist staffer says, "I LOVE a Miami Vice, with the extra shot for $1." For those not in the know (congratulations, by the way), that's a half Daiquiri half Piña.
Dallas BBQ is located... everywhere, basically. Just keep turning corners til you find one.
SURF BAR This place has a bevy of boozy beverages, including the Piña. It may not be "the best," but it is served in a hula girl plastic cup and there is sand on the ground at this place—and that's something. Plus, our own John Del Signore (pictured) runs off these things, and has them delivered in dry ice to the office every Friday, with a side of paper cocktail umbrellas.
Surf Bar is located at 139 North 6th Street in Williamsburg
PKNY pours a generous Piña that at least one Yelper declared to be her "fav"! Last we heard they were served in hollowed-out pineapple shells, which is always the most desirable mode of transport for delivering the slushy drink to your mouth hole.
PKNY is located at 49 Essex Street on the Lower East Side
