I recently noticed that Toluca La Bella, the inventor of the hot dog torta, has closed. What is taking its place, you ask? Well, here’s what I saw in the window today.

Three Buddhas

This doesn’t look good, folks. I swear to god if this is another Thai restaurant I will fucking flip out. Enough with the spring rolls, already. I WANT TACOS!

Since the local business community is unable to comprehend that the threshold for Asian food here was surpassed a long, long time ago, I got an idea: why don’t we Greenpointers put together a list of things Greenpoint does not need more of? The entrant with the best submission will get the following prestigious prize.

Patrick Swayze

  • Five band aids
  • One Tampon
  • One lint roller
  • One can of Static Guard
  • One bottle of Erotica Massage Oil
  • One pair of scissors
  • One mint condition 45 of Patrick Swayze’s song, Raising Heaven (In Hell Tonight) from soundtrack of the movie Roadhouse.

Submissions can be sent via email to missheather (at) newyorkshitty (dot) com or can be posted via a comment on this post. Good luck folks and I look for to seeing what you dish out!

  4. I found everything except the Swayze record and the massage oil in a bag at the junk shop. It’s like a fucked up survival kit or something.

Tell me what you're thinking...
