I'm coming to New York for the first time in over 40 yrs. By a happy coincidence, a singer I like very much is performing at Joe's Pub during the time I'll be there. I've read reviews about the place and they run the gamut from "great place" to "the bouncers are pretty rude and I'll never go back" and "you have to pay extra to sit down." If I have a ticket to the show I should be O.K., right? Would someone be willing to tell me the best way to approach this? Do I ask for dinner reservations when I buy the ticket? Sit at the bar? Can I walk back to Times Square (my hotel is near there) afterward or do I take a taxi?
