After a slight delay Jimmy and Seamus (whose name it is an absolute delight to type) are set to open Shayz Lounge tomorrow, January 22. I don’t know about you but I for one am very eager to see what (if anything) they have done to the place.

130 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222
OPENING DATE: January 17 22, 2008

Yes sir, that waterfront rezoning has kicked gentrification in Greenpoint into overdrive. Why, just a few years ago we couldn’t afford spray paint to tag our burned out cars.

Anyone care to guess how long this hilarious item will remain on India Street? From the look of things I’d say this carbecque has been sitting here for at least 48 hours.

Bodhi watched the inauguration with rapt interest. Artemis (the orange lump atop the television) could hardly have cared less.

I think he voted for McCain.

Instead of making crappy remakes of good movies why don’t they make good remakes of crappy movies?

Just a thought.

P.S.: I would be remiss if I didn’t toss in my two cents about the ginormous abomination being built behind this billboard. Here it is.

To put a spin on what is inscribed at the James Farley Post Office:

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays this developer from the swift completion of his appointed annointed pile of crap.

Those of you who want to knock back some suds while enjoying a moment in history might want to head down to the Black Rabbit Bar.
