A drink combo of unbelievable value, usually comprising a beer and a shot for as low as $5, that can be commonly found in New York City's East Village neighborhood.
Popular combos include a PBR, either a can or a draft, and a shot of whiskey, though some bars let the customer choose the type of beer and shot. Perhaps the most unique combo discovered to date is a 24 oz. can of Labatt with a shot of Jack Daniels for $6.
East Village specials are commonly purchased in order to get completely wasted in New York City without paying $10 for one miserable beer.
