1. Hustle somebody.
Not all New York bars are about the liquor. This city has a long history of gaming halls — chiefly pool and billiards — where Paul Newman-looking sharks stumble in faking intoxication just to smoke a drunk tourist out of $20. Do the same at neon-lit and moderately tacky Space Billiards in Midtown or the upscale Society Billiards in Flatiron, and you might end the night a few bucks richer.
