Hair of the Dog

Spent lots of money on sweaters and tequila this weekend? Don’t let that stop you from indulging yourself on Monday. Toss back a coffee, collect some loose change and visit Joey's.

Joey’s 4 for $1 thongs and boy shorts is the best bargain on 8th Avenue. And the biggest public display of underwear shopping on 8th Avenue? The selfsame Joey's. Put all modesty aside, ladies, because the two huge bins of undies are full frontal street level. Everyone can watch while you sort through mountains of thongs. The men’s underwear is, of course, in the back. Thanks, guys. But these underthings are all cotton Fruit of the Loom (bottom, ha!) and 4 for $1 means it's worth any minor embarrassment you may suffer.

Also, pick up some men’s white T’s for $1 and buy the $1 men’s socks (be sure the cotton ratio outweighs the acrylic), left. Then rummage through the racks of sweats and look for a $6 green American Apparel sweatshirt. The adrenaline rush of such a find immediately cures any residual thong shopping shame and your weekend hangover. Cheers.

Joey's, 500 8th Avenue between 35th & 36th, 212-279-3160
