TOMORROW: George Diaz Does Cafecito

I knew something was up when George made a beeline to me on Manhattan Avenue today. This is not to suggest we are not friends: we are. Rather, he had a glint in his eye. It bespoke of impending mischief. Sure enough, that’s exactly what it was.

Tomorrow, May 16, our neighborhood bad ass and brains behind Latino Laughter will be a guest barista at Cafecito Bogota. Aside from “jailhouse coffee” being in the offing I honestly do not what this will entail. Truth be told, I doubt George does either. In any case he is a really funny guy so you can probably expect a heaping helping of  stand-up (and attitude) with your java!

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Gearing Up For “The Bounty”

Happy B DayNYS

Tomorrow they will commence filming The Bounty, an “action/comedy” featuring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler right here in Greenpoint. Provided the weather holds. When I told one of the men charged with overseeing the last minute preparations that the weather is going to be iffy, he said:

We’ll work with it.

You gotta love an attitude like that. Here’s a slide show of how things were shaping up when I walked by today. Enjoy!

To close on a more local note Champion Coffee, arguably one of the best purveyors of java in north Greenpoint, will be closed until June 19th.

Coffee lovers needing a Monday (Tuesday and Wednesday) morning commute caffeine fix should plan accordingly. My recommendation: Cafecito Bogota. Not only are the co-proprietors of this business incredibly nice chaps, but the cholados are amazing!
