Yes. You’re not in college anymore and you’re definitely not going to that ‘da club’ that looks the other way when checking IDs. However, in New York, it’s not rare to pay $12 - $14 for each mixed drink you order and upwards of $8 for a good beer. If you have some leftovers hanging around your one-bedroom flex apartment, take advantage. If you feel good enough when you head out and meet your friends, you might not drink as much. Less drinking leads to less money spent, which leads to you being able to write your rent check without crying.
