Drinking around the world is becoming a cultural phenomenon; people fly here from all over the globe to see how many countries they can drink through without passing out in the bushes by Canada. But the best place to grab a pint in this park is at the Rose and Crown. It’s air-conditioned, it’s staffed with fresh-faced kids from the U.K. who probably drink more than you do, and there’s a little piano in the corner where a British dame plays fancy tunes as you spill a Black-and-Tan on your neighbor’s Crocs. If you stay here long enough, you can catch the fireworks from the bar
without having to smell the hellishly sulfurous smoke that washes over the area afterward.
