Croxley Ales

Two words; Dirty Fingers.  This is what you can expect when you go to Croxley Ales ( 28 Avenue B between 2nd & 3rd Street).  Mondays and Wednesdays are 10 cent wing nights & as the picture demonstrates things can get really messy (20 cent wings til 5 on Saturday & all day Sunday), I don’t know why they bother giving us forks anyhoo!

I showed up with some friends on a Monday & luckily it wasn’t too packed.  Wing nights tend to pack the place out pretty damn quickly (Monday Night Football is it’s own special brand of  crazy).  Croxley has a shitload of beer; 31 on tap & too many to count in bottles.  Wings or not, the beer selection alone is reason enough to go.  I love the fact that they don’t serve crap; Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.

Being the gigantic wuss that I am, I ordered 20 mild wings (20 wings is the minimum order on these nights & at $2.00 who cares if you can’t finish them).  The wings are pretty darn good & come out of the kitchen really fast.  This is a bit of a double-edged sword though; I do think that the huge quantity that they serve does affect quality.  The wings taste better on Tuesday, Thursdays & Fridays in my opinion.

Hot for the real 'men'.

My only other real gripe is the Bleu Cheese which is a bit on the watery side (I’m a chunky kinda guy), but that really doesn’t take away from the experience.

There are loads of TVs around generally with sports on.  The waitstaff & bartenders are pretty cool (although I recommend getting a table if you’re going to stuff your piehole with wings).  They have plenty of other food; burgers, quesidillas, fries & the like, but I really only go there for the wings & beer.  Basically Croxley gets 2 hot sauce covered thumbs up!
