So what do you think this space will be:

  1. A supermarket?
  2. A medical clinic?
  3. An auto supply store?
  4. All the above?

Please tender your votes via comments.

P.S.: I’m hoping for “the above”.



I fully aware that by being both a crazy cat lady and a vegetarian I am a hypocrite; every evening while I’m prepping my “not dogs” or “facon” I am feeding my little pride dead animals. Nonetheless I cannot fathom having a pet whose “food” consists of cute little furry things with whiskers. Truth be told it gives me the creeps.

I suppose the difference is the meat I serving my feline friends has already been rendered lifeless. To each their own I guess. All I’m saying is if I ever find something like this while patronizing Chez Shitty’s shitter (or any other shitter for that matter) I’ll go Rambo on its ass.

Like I said before: I’m a hypocrite.

P.S.: While I am on the subject of eating and Meeker Avenue, Wardak Supermarket is slowly, but surely, marching towards completion.


When I walked by today I noticed that they have installed the checkout stations and were in the process of outfitting the produce section.

attached is a pic i snapped of a banner over a soon to be laundromat. over 80 new manchines!  pretty funny!  it’s over at the corner of kingsland and nassau (244 Nassau Avenue to be precise —Ed. Note).  all joking aside i’m excited for a new laundromat in our neck of the woods, all the ones close by are super shitty.  also, do you have any word on when wardak is supposed to open?  i either trek to key food, or i deal with met food since it’s close but man, it is so bad.

Wardak looked pretty close to completion back in November but with this economy who knows? If anyone out there knows if/when this grocery store is set to open by all means please share.

And oh yeah, the Met Food on Nassau Avenue is disgusting. However, it makes a rather nice appearance in the movie Street Trash. Watch this trailer and see for yourself!

UPDATE, 4:15 p.m.: I swung by Wardak on my way to Boneshakers (to purchase some cupcake and sauerkraut love). They were busy at work!


I’ll expound upon on my Boneshakers experience in a bit. Stay tuned!
