Best Bar Mascot New York 2002 - RUDY'S
It's the cheapo pitchers (MGD, $6.75) and free hot dogs that keep neighborhood hipsters and alcoholics alike flocking to RUDY'S. We'd hate to be so obvious, so we'll celebrate this dive institution for an altogether different reason: the giant pig (in a red suit jacket!) that stands outside like some sloppy sentry, scaring off potential patrons with his "Who you calling pig, you yuppie scumbag?" stare.
