Consumer Product Du Jour

NUTS OF FUN

Yesterday the Mister and myself sojourned down Steinway Street. We needed a change of pace.  It was at a rather amazing restaurant/deli, Beirut Restaurant, that I happened upon this product. Fits of laughter followed. I quickly advised the Mister I had a new nickname for him. I think I need not go any further other than to say he did not find this nearly as entertaining as I did. In any case, do check out Beirut Restaurant out!

Spotted On 31st Street: Binti

This is eerily reminiscent of a flyer I spied on Manhattan Avenue not terribly long ago. As to whether this is a new trend (burglarizing apartments and puppies) is anyone’s guess— either way it is not cool. If anyone has seen Binti or knows of her whereabouts please contact her people at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!

This magnificent beast (who I was told— and totally believe— weighs 20 pounds) holds court at Jolsons Fine Wines.

Astoria for Levin and Ciafone

Re-elect Levin IN ASTORIA

The primary might be over, but the mysteries and vestiges remain. Like these posters on Broadway in Astoria, Queens the Mister and I spied this weekend, for example. Why are they here?

Anyone?

Quicklink: From The Times Ledger

An actual quote from this tome (which was published yesterday, August 26th):

 

Ciafone is self-funding his race, which he says separates him from those who might want to buy influence.

This fellow truly is the gift that keeps on giving folks. Too bad the Times Ledger didn’t ask some of Mr. Ciafone’s tenants here in north Brooklyn what they think of this fellow…
