Troy pub marks 1st birthday with toy drive

The Lansingburgh sports bar and grill.
TROY -- The majority of restaurants and pubs don't make it to their first birthday. It's a rough business in which to find and sustain a niche, and an estimated 60% of new ventures go belly-up in the first 12 months, according to industry surveys.

So, it's nice to be able to wish a new spot a happy first birthday. That's the case for the Forty-One Sports Bar & Grille, located at 41 112th Street in the city's Lansingburgh section.

As it enters its second year, the business is teaming up with the North Lansingburgh Neighborhood Watch to host a fundraiser for its 5th annual toy drive, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. this Friday (December 7) at the restaurant.

Patrons are asked to bring an unwrapped new toy for children up to age 12. In return, they'll get to sample a buffet of free appetizers.

The toys will be distributed to children through Whitney Young Health Service's Troy facility and the Lansingburgh Boys & Girls Club.

Forty-One, which has a family atmosphere, serves in both the bar area and dining room, and also has a private party room, all offering a dozen premier drafts and a full bar list. There are 20 high-def TV sets scattered throughout the premises.

The full menu is available here. Among some of its more interesting menu items are such appetizers as eggplant fries and Mexican pizza, such salads as the iconic Cobb, and a raft of burgers, chicken sandwiches and wraps.

Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 12 a.m. Monday-Thursday, to 2 a.m. Friday-Saturday, and to midnight Sunday. Phone: 235-4141.
