Best Place to Get Loaded With Hooligans and Cops - 2009
If you walk by Farrell's pregnant, all the firemen and policemen drinking inside will whistle. Loudly. If you are a yuppie or a hipster, work from home, are on your way to see MGMT at Prospect Park, or don't have a badge, hose, or paper bag at your disposal, you might not like Farrell's (est. 1933). If you don't appreciate winos (the same winos, everyday) pissing on the stoop of your drinking establishment, you probably won't like Farrell's. If you call it "Farrell's Bar & Grill" (its full name), you definitely don't understand Farrell's. But if the prospect of drinking with cops who can't wait to teach you how to sneak alcohol onto the subway sounds like your idea of a good time, you are: 1) correct, and 2) an ideal Farrell's customer. And that, my friend, is a compliment.
You know not for nothing have you ever stepped foot into Farrell's? Shame on you for 'stereotyping" a place you know nothing about. Sure it may be filled with blue collar workers, but to say anything derogatory about the men and women of the place is downright insulting. As a wall street professional who grew up in the area and frequents the bar, I have never seen the actions you are describing. It is people like you and the yuppies who moved into the area and are dying to turn it into something they want, that are giving it a bad rep. Shame on you again for not being accurate in your account of the establishment.
