(Last in a series)
Last Saturday night, after dinner, we looked for a place to hang out and have a nightcap. We wandered about in the area near the Empire State Building...and completely by random accident, discovered Foley's Pub. We went in and were welcomed...despite being from Boston (I was wearing my Sox hoodie).

Here's Domo (above a seat from Fenway) examines a scorecard from the 2004 ALCS Game 7, signed by Joe Castiglione.





We knew we had found a good place in the foyer, which was masoned from
lucite boxes of autographed baseballs, including Sadahara Oh...



...and Hideki Matsui.



He's a popular guy at Foley's, Hideki-san. Here's his jersey from the Yomuri Giants...



...and a couple of bobbleheads in his likeness.



The bartender made certain we knew about their cocktail special.



I doubt there are many bars in Manhattan with a table dedicated to the World Champion Boston Red Sox.



Joe Castiglione from WEEI is a friend of the owner's and has his own corner at the back of the bar.



An old metal advertising sign above Castig's Corner.



What you see when you walk out Foley's door and look up.



A close-up of the Game 7 scorecard Domo's looking at in the first picture...

and the ted williams sign. wow. my grandmother has some stuff like that in one of the guest bedrooms at her house. She actually showed me a scrapbook she made when she was a kid, all of Teddy. It was incredible to see all of that stuff.

It's cool.

And I'm totally in love with the way we (literally) stumbled over it by accident. Some guy coming out of the place gave it a glowing review. Dave asked why he was leaving, and the guy said, "I ran out of money!" Hee.

But you should have seen us, standing outside: Whattaya think? Does it look good? Want to give it a shot? Then we saw the baseballs in the foyer and we were like...Ooooooh yeah, this is a good place...
