Taco Tuesday is ok. Really wanted to like this place after hearing all the rave reviews from friends/rateclubsers. First of, its way too crowded and felt like a meat market inside. Waited in line for about 25 minutes for crispy fish tacos and turned out to be a bit on the soggy side. Having to wait for that long in line for tacos, I was expecting a little better than what I got. Maybe there was a huge demand might of downscaled the quality of the tacos, but would give it another shot, maybe on a different day.

OK here is the story....we waited until they opened and when we finally got there we were informed that the show did not start until 1:30 am and that meant 2 hrs for us to wait when we'd already been drinking all over the LES. The place is great w/the decor compliments the whole theme, we did not drink but we will be back.

Europa cracks me up and really pisses me off at the same time. I've come here for a few shows over the years, because they book some of the more abrasive metal bands that just wouldn't be able to fill a club in Manhattan. Saw Pig Destroyer here back in the day, think I saw Car Bomb once, and saw Atakke last night. The sound is totally hit or miss. Pig Destroyer are one of my favorite bands and I remember it being one of the worst shows I've ever been to. Atakke's sound was really great. Totally hit or miss. Beers are at least twice the price they should be at a place like this in this location, but from what I understand, as soon as the metal shows end, this becomes an eastern european-type disco for underage Polish chicks. So I guess they can jack up the prices. From Manhattan, it's a total drag to get to and there's not a whole lot going on around after shows. I avoid Europa unless it's a band I HAVE to see. Would recommend you do the same unless you live in the neighborhood, in which case it's actually a decent place to hang out (good seating etc.). Just not worth the trip/money.
