Slushies for the masses!

Corner Frenzy

Today is apparently the grand opening of the Corner Frenzy’s slushie stand.

24 Flavors

Why not savor one of the 24 flavors of soft serve this laundromat sells while washing your tighty whities? It’s not like you have anything better to do anyway.

As one satisfied customer proclaimed this weekend:

Hey, get over here and try this before someone calls the city!*

Fuck Zagat or Michelin, the previous review merits five stars in my book.

Those of you who want to get your summer slushie fix can do so at the “Corner Frenzy” (located at northwestern intersection of Manhattan Avenue and Huron Street).

*This is in no way meant to insinuate this place is unsanitary, though there was no permit condoning such concessions to be found. If anything, this place is probably cleaner than Enid’s (which was recently shut down by the DOH). To be honest, I place the blame regarding the latter on the clients, not the proprietors.

  2. I think when I finally get kicked out of my apt. so they can luxury condorize my building, i’ll be checking out Greenpoint..Carroll Gardens just has these damn hooligans and NO slushies……maybe if the kids had slushies they’d stop snapping those wet tshirts at the stay at home dads!!!!!

  6. You can get slushies. But don’t take your stuff there if you care about your clothes. We stupidly took our drycleaning here, thinking it would be fine. They poured ammonia over everything and ruined, to the count so far, 22 sweaters, a pair of gloves, three dresses, and about sixteen shirts. The other stuff may be wearable but it smells like hell, and is definitely smaller. As for the bill, they refuse to give us a receipt for the 372.50 we paid them (cos we had to get everything drycleaned, due to a bug scare), told us the actual bill was more but “we didn’t charge you the extra fourty on account of the sweaters,” told us we were “acting crazy” and they couldn’t “deal with people like us” who got “all up in their face” when we demanded a refund, and the owner, miriam, has been MIA everytime we’ve gone in. Last time I was in there asking for the receipt, I asked for the owner’s name and they either pretended not to know it, that I could ask her, gave me different times for when she got in, and then said there was nothing they could do for me, until they called me stupid and pointed to the license on the wall. So they may have a slushie front, but I can tell you they’ve got slushie business sense and customer service, too.

Tell me what you're thinking...
