Strange name is perfect for Halloween

If you are short of ideas for Halloween themes this year, why not consider visiting this bar in New York City. How many people do you think will be showing up in a pirate’s costume?


Not many people have the courage to name their business as Thieves, even though we all know it is a tongue-in-cheek name from some owner with personality and confidence.


Many other small shops specialize, especially in a big metropolis. Why shouldn’t a bar specialize in whiskey? Might surely bring up their average tab by scaring off all those poor beer alone bums.
