Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: An Ode To Ash

This evening while running errands I caught my favorite bodega cat, Ash, in a rather compromising position.

However, Ash is a good sport about these things provided she gets rubbins. She knows I am a trusty provider too. They always know.

As I was lavishing attention upon her, one girl appeared at the door. Naturally Ash, being not just a loss prevention expert but also the ambassador of this establishment, obliged her.

Then two girls appeared.

Then three.

Ash then proceeded to demonstrate her skillz on the nearby Wall of Beer. Much to her peril, as it proved.

Those two packs of beer at far right almost toppled over. I caught them. This sent her youngest admirer into pealing fits of laughter. I did not just save Ash’s dignity, but I probably saved an aficionado of Zywiec and Lomza from opening a can of beer and having it spray in his face. That shit is for DRINKING. Two counts of dignity, saved.

But enough about me. Or beer.

This post is for you, Ash. The joy you give patrons of this establishment, children foremost among them, even melts the cockles of my heart. I’m sure the parents of the aforementioned children would concur, despite the exasperation of having to collect their them from partaking of your charms (which happened tonight). Ash, you are a loved, cherished member of the community.

Just keep away from the Wall of Beer, okay?

Those of you who have wondered (as I have) what’s going on at the aforementioned address, I can tell you. Per their liquor license application this space is slated to be a grocery store which will sell beer. That’s all I can dig up. If anyone reading this has the 411 about this establishment do share via comments or email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your anonymity (if so desired) is guaranteed!

Public Service Announcement: Brouwerij Lane Hits Cyberspace!

openthumbYesterday afternoon I found a most wonderful and welcome missive awaiting my perusal. It was from Erik Olsen of Brouwerij Lane and read as follows:

Ed Raven and I want to thank everyone who showed up for the beer and goulash party on Saturday.  We had people lined up out the door and little standing room.  We went through all of the Viennese goulash and a tremendous amount of tap beer. (! — Ed. Note) We consider it a warm welcoming to the neighborhood, and look forward to seeing all of you in the future.

As promised, I have established a web page to keep up to date info, future events and a current tap list for growler fillin’…

You read that right folks: these fine chaps have harnessed the power of the Internet so all you sud lovers can learn what beers will be on tap at Brouwerij Lane on any given day! Will the wonders ever cease?

My advice: add this site to your RSS feed. NOW.

As you can see the marquee says nothing about massages. I can only hope this is an oversight on their part.
