In this era of so-called "fake news" - this was TRULY the epitome of just that...
Because of said video -that was PROMOTED and went viral thanks to Cosmopolitan, my friend's birthday was PLANNED around going to the Watermark Bar, hoping for an amazing adult beverage that we could share and laugh and post photos about on her special day...
But no. Here's the bullsh!t that I speak of: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/food-cocktails/a10029579/mermaid-cocktail-watermark-new-york-city/
Much like the myth of the mermaid, there is no specialty mermaid drink at this bar. To be even more disappointed, the ability to have a frozen beverage was also unavailable because apparently, the frozen drink machine had broken the night before due to extreme usage.
And for what it's worth, they don't even use real glasses or anything other than disposable cups and plates at Watermark.
The visit was almost an epic fail all because of BAD reporting. The saving grace may have been the Watermelon Spiced Margarita. It's like a spicy, liquid version of a watermelon Jolly Rancher candy. Yeah. That was delicious.
Plus, the service at Watermark was thankfully good.... but guess what? Having a table to drink and dine al fresco with disposable, lightweight drinking cups on a windy day, ENSURES SOMEONE WILL WEAR THEIR BEVERAGE at one point.
Thanks for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, Danielle OMG FAKER THAN FAKE Tullo at Cosmopolitan. You are NOT an expert... at anything and can officially BITE the big mermaid tail.
