Some of you on the north end of Greenpoint might have noticed this sign (which is prominently placed on the front door of T & N Wine & Liquor). The imagery pretty much speaks for itself. What I was curious about (not being very proficient in Polish) was the text. Was this a flier admonishing folks about the dangers of public intoxication? Believe it or not the thought had crossed my mind. Knowing the cranktabulous owner of this establishment, Chris, rather well I really should have known better.

Last night my curiousity finally got the better of me and I asked him what gives. Follows was his (very general) translation):

HELP!!!
For every one of these fliers posted Mietek gets a bottle of lowest quality wine.
Show that you care.
Do not let this man get sober!!!

So there have you.

As far as window displays go for this establishment this is pretty understated. Nonetheless, you gotta love the Santa decanters: a yuletide gift begetting a Greenpoint king— or queen!

You asked for it— so here it is folks. NOTE/CAVEAT: the previous link is very not safe for work!

P.S.: Special thanks go out to this store’s proprietor, Chris, for asking me if I am over 21.

Spotted At T & N Wine & Liquor: Chicks & Bunnies

March 31, 2010 ·

When I hopped off the bus after today’s sojourn I encountered this, the latest window display at T & N Wine and Liquor. As you can see it is garnering a great deal of attention. When I arrived home my inbox was filled with inquiries as to what is going to happen to these chicks after Easter. Here’s the scoop per this establishment’s proprietor, Chris. CAVEAT: this story does not have a happy ending.

Chris purchased these chicks from a hatchery. He ordered twenty five of them so they tossed in one more (the dark one) for free. Believe it or not these little ones were delivered via the United States Postal Service. He had to go to our illustrious post office to pick them up. After Easter they will go to a farm a friend of his owns upstate. Here they will live for six weeks. After that they will be dinner. Apparently this variety of chicken is has been bred/engineered for body mass. After six weeks their legs can no longer support their bodies.

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—and yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me— nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.— Hamlet

UPDATE, April 1, 2010: I have just learned that Chris has changed his plan. Anyone who wants a chick after Easter can have one. Oh yeah, as for the rabbits: they belong to a friend.

UPDATE, April 2, 2010: It would appear that NBC surfs blogs for leads. As it would happen I spoke with the proprietor of T & N Wine and Liquor last night. He told me that the reporter said they learned about his display “on the Internet”.

New York Shitty Day Ender: Dazed & Confused

When I saw this today I wondered if Chris, the proprietor of this establishment, was merely being mischievous or if this missive was addressing a bona fide problem. Although I have known this chap for some time even I can never tell for certain. After all this IS the man whose front window was once graced by a very real cooked turkey with, um, benefits for three whole days. I decided to settle the matter for once and all: I asked Chris what gives. His answer might surprise you.

Chris assured me that there has, in fact, been some confusion. Despite the awning gracing this property (which you can see clearly indicates spirits are sold therein) and posters in the window advertising discounted liquor some have inquired about footwear. Or have been upset that their liquor store is now shoe store— he didn’t indicate which. Given the near insurrection I beheld at a local pharmacy recently when their lotto machine was down (and thus could not issue tickets or give payouts) I would hazard to guess it’s the latter.

It would appear that Chris is still finding new and inventive ways to display Crystal Skull vodka!
