Spotted At Coco 68: Signs of Activity

Although nary a liquor license hearing notice was to be found on the premises— if what I saw while walking by this afternoon is any indication, Coco 68 is indeed making preparations to re-open.

Coming To 120 Franklin Street: Van Gogh’s Radio 2.0?

No liquor license hearing notice has been posted, but per the agenda for our local Community Board’s Public Safety Committee agenda this may very well be the case!

You will also notice, dear readers, that Coco 66 (albeit via 68 Greenpoint Avenue) is also on the docket. Hmm…

But back to 120 Franklin Street— and CKTP LLC. After some research I deduced the Greenpoint grapevine may very well be correct. The chap behind CKTP LLC endeavor, Christopher Klusak, has close ties to Van Gogh’s Radio.

Will Van Gogh’s Radio be making a comeback? It certainly appears to be the case. However, there’s still that liquor license hearing meeting on September 27th. Only then will we know for certain…

LAST GASP: What’s Up At Coco 66?

July 12, 2011 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

I have noticed a number of search query “hits” about this establishment on the back-end of my web site recently. So much so that this afternoon I did a walk by to see what’s up.

By all appearances Coco 66 appears to be shuttered…

and something is going on next door at Coco 68. This is very curious indeed! Now factor in an email I received this evening after meeting with a wonderful group of young ladies (about matters north Brooklyn). A person we’ll call ipfreely writes:

Hi Miss Heather,

Did something happen to Coco 66? Just wondering.!/sevagranik


Some of the people reading this tome are undoubtedly aware this establishment has had issues with “the authorities” before. Perhaps this incident is somehow related to what happened last year? In any case, if anyone reading this tome has the 411 on what happened please share via comments or email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. You identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!

UPDATE, July 13, 2011 3:08 p.m.: I have gotten the word from the man upstairs (that being none other than the head of the 94th himself, D.I. Hurson!) as to what happened. Here you go!

Miss Heather,  I noticed on your web page that you noticed that Coco 66 is closed. We did a joint operation Saturday with the State Liquor Authority Coco 66 was operating without a Liquor license. The owner was arrested and all the Liquor was order destroyed by the SLA.

UPDATE, July 14, 2011: Paper Magazine has a pretty good (if rather short) article as to what happened. Give it a read!
