What's better than a sports bar with tons of food and drink? A sports bar with tons of food and drink at retro prices. On October 21st, Foley's, probably the best baseball bar in midtown Manhattan, is celebrating 1959 with "Toots Shor Day," an homage to the legendary restaurant from the 50's. Shaun Clancy, owner of Foley's, says "last year, the retro 1950's pricing was a huge success on 'Toots Shor Day,' this is my way of honoring my idol in the restaurant business and giving the customers something special. It will be a fun day at Foley's."
Here are some tidbits from the 'retro' menu:
Joe DiMaggio's Sliced Tomato and Onion Salad – $1.00
Frank Sinatra's Sirloin Steak with Mashed Potato and Succotash – $7.95
Frank Gifford's Curried Chicken with Rice – $3.95
Walter Cronkite's Corn Chowder – $1.00
Baby's Rice Pudding – 75¢
For those prices in this economy, they could be serving Alpo and I think people would still eat it. And what's with the names? Those were the peeps who used to hang out at Toots Shors back in the day. So shine up your wingtip shoes and throw on your fedora, 'cuz Foley's is bringing 50's back.
