You probably follow someone on Instagram who is constantly bragging about how “healthy” and “happy” they are since they cut alcohol out of their diet. And while you’re super happy for them and their new sober lifestyle, the thought of going out to dinner on a Friday without a couple of cocktails sounds like a life you’re just not ready to live. Try Charlie Was A Sinner, a cocktail bar in Midtown Village that makes their drinks with fresh fruit juice and organic liquor, and also serves a completely vegan menu of small plates that’ll make you feel better about your life choices without giving up your weekend activities.
