Culture on the Cheap
New York Shitty Day Ender: Dazed & Confused
When I saw this today I wondered if Chris, the proprietor of this establishment, was merely being mischievous or if this missive was addressing a bona fide problem. Although I have known this chap for some time even I can never tell for certain. After all this IS the man whose front window was once graced by a very real cooked turkey with, um, benefits for three whole days. I decided to settle the matter for once and all: I asked Chris what gives. His answer might surprise you.
Chris assured me that there has, in fact, been some confusion. Despite the awning gracing this property (which you can see clearly indicates spirits are sold therein) and posters in the window advertising discounted liquor some have inquired about footwear. Or have been upset that their liquor store is now shoe store— he didn’t indicate which. Given the near insurrection I beheld at a local pharmacy recently when their lotto machine was down (and thus could not issue tickets or give payouts) I would hazard to guess it’s the latter.
