McHale's to Close, Leaving Scalpers on the Street

With Theater District pub/burger-joint/institution McHale's, at 8th Ave. and West 46th, set to close New Year's Day to make way for 42 stories of you-can-probably-guess, blogger WhatISee snaps a few parting shots and feels for the neighborhood's scalper community:

I first found out about the place because ticket scalpers used to use it as a drop off place. You stopped by, bought a beer, showed your drivers licence and picked up your tickets for the nearby theatres. It was quite an operation. A recent visit showed the well used portfolio still sits behind the bar.· McHale's [WhatISee]
