Where We Watch says: We all know someone who has drunkenly embraced humiliation on a mechanical bull. I've done it and admit I wasn't very good. The best place in NYC to practice your bull riding skills: Johnny Utah's, hidden amongst the skyscrapers crowding midtown and conveniently located across the street from an OTB. On a weekday afternoon, Johnny Utah's is packed with suits complaining about the markets. On weekends, doors open at 3pm for people ready to kick back in true Southern style, with drink specials and audio on their three 15-foot screens. Bonus: by the time the sun goes down, it seems highly likely that someone will be humiliating themselves on that bull. How's that for a photo finish?
