Rudy’s oh Rudy’s, you’ve saved us from waiting for the bus in the apocalyptic light show that is Times Square. Although your Times Square anxiety will be soothed once you walk into Rudy’s and order a blonde or amber house draft and sink your teeth into a free all beef hotdog. Yes FREE! For every beer ordered comes a dog on a bun, but don’t get greedy you’ll be called out for it. All the usual suspects in bottles and tap with an occasional craft brew as well as Rudy’s own Blonde Ale or Amber. We suggest trying it as its cheap, about $2 and treats you the same as those other big names. The place is sprinkled with aspiring actors, locals theater folk and well basically everyone under the sun and moon stop in here being that it is in the heart of tourist town. We stop in fairly often as you should too and enjoy a piece of Old New York. (Disclaimer: it’s changed a bit since Old New York but it’s still got its charm.)
We spend a lot of time in our wood shop throwing back beers and coming up with ideas for projects. In doing so recently, we stumbled upon the Kinkajou bottle cutter. This device makes turning empty bottles into candle holders a breeze when you’re in a rush to get the man cave feeling a bit more romantic for your lady friend.

Beer cap maps, started by a beer cap collector, has turned into a business helping others create art for their walls out of beer caps. Its a pretty simple concept but the results are cool, each map is laser cut out of 1/4″ veneered plywood with holes to place your favorite bottle caps. We’re a lil butt hurt that there’s no wood cut for the beautiful state of New Jersey but hey we’ll drown that out with beer! More info on Beer Cap Maps or to purchase CLICK HERE
