Traditions Pub
84-28 164th St.
Jamaica, N.Y.

A dive-y locale situated just off the St. John's campus, Tradition's takes on many different guises throughout the week. On a regular weeknight it's quiet, a good place to grab a beer and some pretty decent chicken fingers. On a weekend when there's a party, however, shit gets a little wild. The upstairs is opened up, a DJ is installed, and the kegs come out. Yeah, it may seem a bit dreary at times, but the drinks are cheap, the wait-staff is cool, and if you catch it on a good night, you'll leave either happily enervated or intoxicated. Or both, it's up to you.
