“McGovern motioned to Dave the bar-tender for another drink. McGovern was drinking a Vodka McGovern. Dave of course was more than a little familiar with the drink, a rather large helping of vodka, soda, fresh orange juice and a squeeze of lime. It had to be a squeeze of lime.”( “Musical Chairs”, 1991).

 One of Kinky’s favourite eateries is the Corner Bistro on West 4th Street, just opposite Jane Street and McGovern’s apartment in Jane Street. It features in several of his novels and he is taken ill with malaria while drinking there with McGovern at the start of “The prisoner of Vandam Street” (2004).

The Corner Bistro is a Greenwich Village tradition still going strong today. Check it out.
