Eater has highlights from last night's CB3 SLA Licensing Committee meeting. Among the East Village highlights: Aces & Eights, the new frathole on Avenue A in the former Mo Pitkin's space, is not making many friends.
A number of EVill oldtimers stood up to complain about noise, while the CB members questioned the lack of food in the restaurant, the 13 TVs (they were allowed to have only two), and the advertisements for drinking games. In his defense the owner said food was on the way — though we think it's safe to assume he means wings, nachos, and bar snacks — and that beer pong should not be equated with binge drinking, "It's one pitcher divided into 16 cups!" The peanut gallery had a good laugh, and the committee decided to write a letter to the SLA.
