I'm always amazed at the food-themed records that people throw out - see our post from last week on the Fat Boys, or Porter Wagoner's The Farmer record. While this one is probably not one you want to listen to every day, I'll admit that 'German Drinking Songs' does make you thirsty for a beer.

The Standard Hotel in New York's Meatpacking District is hard to beat these days. They've set up a temporary ice rink in front of the hotel, along with a rinkside bar serving strong ciders and hot toddys for us non-skaters. After a drink from the 'Kaffeeklatsch,' you can head inside to the beer garden, where you buy carnival-style tickets good for food, then make your way to the sausage and/or seafood carts to choose your dinner.
