2009- Jimmy's Clearance Post- All Loose Ends Must Go!!

It's that time of year! Time to purge the last bits of 2009 to make room for the glory that will be 2010! Of course, some of these things will carry over, so let's start with our beautiful back room! Check out this picture of "The Burrows", as we are calling it. It's a woodsy wonderland in our private room. Doesn't that look like a great place for a party? If you are interested, just call 212 982 3006 for more information.

New Year's Eve is bearing down upon us. Don't forget that Jimmy's No. 43 is celebrating with Oysters and Beer! Join us for local oysters from Peconic Bay served a number of lip smacking ways. Reservations and walk-ins accepted.

We recently came across a twitter feed that made us feel pretty good. Thanks Lainey, we love you, too.

The last loose end of 2009? This picture is one I can't resist. Jim Cummings, a regular at Jimmy's No. 43, was kind enough to share this cool picture with us. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will leave this post right here.

Have a happy and safe New Year!
