"Nightlife destination" mania continues: 10 new applicants for full liquor licenses on the docket



Save the Lower East Side! brings news regarding the Community Board 3 committee that reviews liquor licenses. Its first meeting of the season is Sept. 15, 6:30 p.m., at 200 E 5th St., corner of Bowery.

Rob reports:

As Among the 40 applications, there are no fewer than 10 new applications for full liquor licenses (called "op" for "on premises" -- scroll down to item 21).

They're everywhere: one on Grand; another just around the corner from it on Eldridge Street; Chrystie is getting hit; around the corner on Rivington too; Allen off Stanton (right next to Epstein's Bar); 2 on 10th Street. Some are restaurants, some are bars; all add to the "nightlife destination" mania, the rising commercial rents, the selling off of the LES to Generation Bloomberg.

Don't be bitter if these new places won't let you or Jeremiah Moss or Ken Mac or Bob Arihood in. Times have changed, my man. Speaking of which, off to Murray Hill, MePa, then EV to prey on those yunnie hotties.

anonymous (you truly are): give me your address so I can come puke on your doorstep, sream "whoo hoo" at 4am below your window, rev my penis-substituting motorcycle, and yell "mf-----" at anyone not as sloshed as I am. Oh right, you are probably sleeping in cold comfort from your daddy's $$$ and mommie's teat.

Anon: and you can't possibly really believe that anyone who reads Jeremiah's blog would have any interest in supporting these new slime holes? I can get braindead from watching TV, thanks.

Crap, I meant no one with a brain reading EV GRIEVE's blog would frequent these new trendoid bars. I didn't sleep last night, wonder why.

Hi Ken.

No worries! I knew what you meant...
