3 Drinks (And 3 Outfits) For Martini Week

Let's be real, we love a stiff drink after work...or really, whenever. To banish our February blues and welcome (maybe? please?) the start of spring, there's no better way to celebrate than with a week full of $10 martinis. Starting today, Tasting Table and Thrillist are partnering up to offer irresistible cocktail concoctions at some of the hottest tables in Manhattan. Over 20 restaurants are joining in on next week's bargain booze, so to make it easier for you we chose our top three bars, martinis and your outfit for the night. The binge doesn't stop until March 14, and you can get crunked from 5:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m. nightly. Just make sure to pack some Advil.
Before the fun begins, make a reservation here:
