Very few bars in New York have shuffleboard. In the tightening venn diagram of qualifying locations, the portion marked off for dives with shuffleboard is smaller still. But the sleazy best of them is Nancy Whiskey Pub (what a name!). The beer is cold, the food rightly mediocre and priced low, and the bartender is often drunk. He's drunk, you're drunk, we're all drunk at Nancy Whiskey Pub (such a joy to say).
