    Yes, Stella is all over the city, as common as Bass or Guinness. A bartender told me it was like the Budweiser of Europe, so I had always assumed it's popular there. It's a good, crisp, very poundable beer.

    Default Stella

    Stella Artois is a very widely distributed Belgian beer. It is supposedly one of the oldest in the world, and more recently (past 10 or so years) was purchased by Interbrew SA. Interbrew is (last time I looked into it) the second largest mass producer of beer in the world (behind A. Busch). Actually Hof, I believe they own Beck's so you may be in luck...

    Default Drinking spots before the Knicks

    Hi. I'm going to NYC tomorrow for the first time and I'm going to the knicks game on Saturday night. Any body now a good place to go before and after the game. How long should I be there before the game?

    Also where is the best place to watch the sunrise??

    West Side bars I would recommend are Latitude at 48th and 8th and Tempest at 31st and 8th (late) and Tracks Raw Bar at Penn Station. Neither are Sports Bars, I'm sure there's no lack of Sports Bars in the area though. Tempest has a good young crowd and same goes for Latitude although the crowd is more Frat there. Tracks has good food fare.

    I would arrive a half hour to an hour before the game, but that's just me. I've never gone to a Knicks game, but usually teams practice before games and it good to get your seats and become comfortable with your surroundings.

    As for the view of the sunrise/sunset go the Empire State Building a few blocks east of MSG.

    New Jersey Nets fan here!!!! If you are going to see the Knicks play you will need a lot of drinks because that is the only way they will look good is after few. They play horrible!!! Also they play like they go the bars before every game.

    lol sry just a few jabs at a fellow rival team, also its against Hornets so you guys might steal one I don't know with Marbury sidelined it will be tough good luck though.

    Charley 0's is good as well as the Blarney Stone. Tempest is a personal favorite of mine. There is a Friday's on 8th which maybe good but they charge way too much. Also for sunrise ESB is good also if you wanted to go out of your way for a great sunrise view you could take W or R Train from Herald Square to City Hall and walk on the Brooklyn Bridge and watch the sunrise. Enjoy.

    What's the options on getting to a Nets game (and back) from Manhattan by public transport? Is the bus the only way?

    MSG sits above Penn Station, so there are all those trains and subway lines ...

    The bus is currently the only way to get to the Meadowlands by public transit. It's easy though.

    It takes less than 10-15 and I think it's about $6 round trip.
