• Under the influence of the season, the mixologists at GoldBar have decided it’s the time to unveil a spring cocktail menu. The new drinks include a B.Q.E made with bourbon, BBQ bitters, and muddled orange, as well some seasonal twists on the traditional tipple. [Grub Street]

• Cowing to the pressures of rising rent, beloved dive bar Max Fish is officially uprooting to Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg. The Lower East Side location will shut its doors sometime in August, leaving behind nothing but foggy memories and one extremely disgusting bathroom. [EV Grieve]
