Once a year, a crimson tide washes over New York. Rudolph, Frosty and Jolly Old St. Nick run for cover, while Tiny Tim Cratchit cries as thousands of “bros” in red polyester santa suits and scantily clad “bro-ettes” dressed as naughty elves and Ms. Claus XXX turn New York into a giant pub crawl puke fest, reducing the city to a spectacle of suburban banality.

It’s now rolling over in its grave… Principals of the three-year-old Foundation around the corner on Essex Street are the hopefuls behind the Motor City Bar replacement. Community Board 3 first heard the case for 127 Ludlow Street (“JMDR”) […]
EAST OF ESSEX BE ADVISED:
Another prospective taker is on the books for 155 Rivington, the recently-departed St. Jerome’s hangout. It seems elements of The DL operation are creeping eastward, past the confines of Hell Square. Paul Seres, Omri Shellef, and Jonas Pelli (former GM at St. Jerome’s) – each involved in the nightmarish Lower East Side club – have just partnered […]
