New York Pubs Featured in New Year's Eve Special

Sure, comedian Zane Lamprey has traveled the world in pursuit of the best bars, pubs and hangouts in 30 countries on his MOJO fan-favorite, high definition series Three Sheets. But can he handle the mean streets of Manhattan? Lamprey briefly retires his passport while re-creating his “world-wide” excursion throughout New York City for Three Sheets: N.Y. Pub Crawl which premieres News Year’s Eve on Monday, December 31 at 9:00pm, ET/PT. Traversing the city to various ethnically-inspired bars, pubs and restaurants, Lamprey will create a mini-“world tour” for Three Sheets so fans can party along while welcoming in the New Year, 2008.

Does “N.Y.” mean “New Year’s” or “New York”? For this occasion, it means both. Zane, who has traveled to the corners of the world for Three Sheets, will now stop at internationally-themed establishments in Manhattan, the cross-cultural crux of the world. How will he recreate his illustrious expedition to the Champagne region in France? By visiting the Bubble Lounge located in downtown Manhattan. Oktoberfest in Munich? Zane drops in on Lederhosen’s on Bleeker Street.

Lamprey’s goal? “We want to provide the audience the experience of Three Sheets without ever having to leave the country, and all in a glorious 60 minute span,” said Lamprey. Three Sheets: N.Y. Pub Crawl will add even more international flavor with entertaining short segments about how citizens of different countries celebrate New Year’s Eve.

In addition, special guests featured in previous Three Sheets episodes will also “go American” and stop by. Hopefully, negotiations with Pleepleus, the stuffed monkey mascot who appears on Three Sheets will be concluded before taping.

Manhattan Locations: Russian Vodka Room (265 W. 52nd Street); McSorley’s (15 E. 7th Street); Bubble Lounge (228 West Broadway); Lederhosen (39 Grove Street); Under the Volcano (12 E. 36th Street); Sake Bar Satsko (202 E. 7th Street); Whiskey River (575 2nd Avenue); Burp Castle (41 E. 7th Street) and World Bar (845 United Nations Plaza). Three Sheets fans will be able to find the destinations on the pub crawl by using a map furnished at beginning December 12.
