A's Bar in Manhattan?

As an A's fan whose lived in New York City for the past three years, it's actually pretty impressive how many green and gold caps I see on a regular basis bobbing through the avenues of Manhattan.  Not surprisingly, there are four teams whose caps are more frequently represented than the A's: the Mets, the Red Sux, Braves, and the-team-that-shall-not-be-named.  Still, I think it's fair to say the A's cap is 5th most popular among NYC residents.  Most of the time, it's a style choice (as I will actively stop these cap-wearers in the street and to investigate whether they do indeed, share my allegiance to the Athletics).  Most of the time, I am greeted with surprise, followed by annoyance, then confusion, and I realize they really just think the colors are cool.  Still, there are a select few who give me an enthusiastic thumbs up.

Recently, I was wearing my A's sweatshirt at a bar in the West Village when a fan came up to me and informed me that there is an A's bar somewhere in Manhattan.  Apparently, at this particular bar, they actually switch off Yankee and Mets games to watch A's games.  I was obviously intrigued, but apparently too tipsy to later recall the exact location of this bar, and now I wish I did.  If any of the AN faithful know what I'm talking about and can disclose the address of this elusive (yet certainly awesome) establishment, I'd be most obliged.  If no one knows, I will make it my mission to find this place before the season starts, and will post my progress and discoveries on the blog.
