If you didn't properly stock up on necessities (i.e. booze and food) before Sandy came to town, there could be a bit of a wait before your next drink. But in the case that any of these fine establishments get their lights back, we've rounded up some bars that are best known for their free bar snacks that could help out with your bare cupboard conundrum. Silver lining: bar time during a natural disaster is the best time to meet your neighbor!
