DBGB signage as pretentious as you'd expect



DBGB opened June 5 on the Bowery... in case you haven't seen the etched signage on the windows of Avalon Bowery Place.






To make matters worse, when I was standing there, one of the etchers yelled, Quel imb├ęcile! Mais qu'est-ce que tu fabriques?

OK, that's not true. But I wish it was!

I'm suggesting they add, "There was an old man from Nantucket..."

Replace pretentious with douchebaggy.

It fits in with the rest of the current aesthetic here -- pretentious and flacid are the words we live with now.

That's because DBGB patrons are also pretentious.

The problem with DBGB, or Varvatos, or Coop, or, Bowery wine & Co., or whatever next yunnie hang-out that would spring out in the Bowery is that the people, who would or currently patronize these places, don't know what Bowery was like before; or they think that the Bowery was always like a mall and that no people live in the neighborhood. Plus the pretentious TONY is telling the pretentious people to come to DBGB, or anywhere in the Bowery.
