Drinks in NYC to entertain a visiting Canadian Contingent?

Thu January 3 at 9:00 PM, Barcade
388 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Bonjour! I'll be in NYC (staying in Brooklyn) with my sister on the night of January 3rd. My sister has expressed a certain dubiosity regarding the wisdom of meeting up with random Internet strangers for drinks. Can we prove her wrong?
It's been a few years since I've been in NYC, so I don't feel super-equipped to propose a location. I'm curious about Barcade, but I don't know if it no longer exists/is always mega-crowded/is no fun. Any NYC MeFites willing to grab the reins and, on short notice, propose a meet up location for a beer-loving 30-something Canuck and his hard-partying 20-something sister?

UPDATE: 9pm, Barcade!

Still? It's 2013 already.

Sure! We'd love to have you. Barcade is still open and a fine place to meet up. 10pm might be a tad late, though, any wiggle room on that?

Just saw your update! Looking forward to it.

I might come by. I like Barcade, just wish it were closer to my house. Oh if I could have it all!

Okay!

Brooklyn is bigger than I thought and it may take us slightly longer than I realized to get there from my uncle's house in Fort Hamilton. Still, we will be there by 9:30 at the latest. I will be the guy with "256" written on my forehead.

Ah, I will be a bit early! No worries either way.

I'm hungry, someone fix this.

OK I'm at the table furthest back with lots of room. Reading my kindle like I'm mad introverted

OK we're here investigating fried children

You haven't bought me any jerky.
