Will there still be a Trainwreck tonight at Angels & Kings?


According to the Angels & Kings Web site this afternoon, Trainwreck Tuesday is still a go for tonight.

Also, it looks as if someone removed the "closed for maintenance issues" line that was posted yesterday:



Meanwhile....um, there's this item from Sabrina Brody in the LA Gossip Examiner yesterday:

Your options for overpriced douchery just got slightly slimmer in New York City: Angels and Kings, the LES bar owned by Pete Wentz, has been closed down for receiving its third citation for serving minors. Don't worry, your opportunity to punch him in the face and scream FALL OUT BOY SUCKS while running screaming across the bar isn't gone for good. The bar will reopen after he responds to a court date, pays some insane fine, and probably watches some videos about America's Draconian drinking laws.
Hire a door guy, dude. There are a million heavyset, intimidating black guys in NYC perfect for the part. The cops are always looking for reasons to shut down stuff in the city, because of all the horrible people who moved into renovated condos in the Lower East Side for the 'authentic New York experience' and then started complaining about all the loudness and the bar crowd.

There is no shortage of options for overpriced douchery in this city.

Sabrina is pretty ignorant about NYC, I take it. The douchers and douchetts that make up the bar crowd are about as far from an authentic NY experience as you can get.

I just posted a comment under Sabrina's column informing her that all of us EV and LES residents don't live in luxury condos and offering to show her the real East Village the next time she comes to New York. The girl is clueless, but maybe she is willing to open her eyes and learn a little bit about our great neighborhood.

I live on that block, a few doors east. The bar WAS open last night and, interestingly, there was an enormous black guy wearing a "SECURITY"-emblazoned tee shirt sitting outside the door. Personally, despite being a petite white girl, I don't find such men intimidating at all and I imagine, with enough winsome charm, any underage chica could work her way into that place. I understand that they are applying for an outdoor/sidewalk seating permit as well. That will be, ahem, interesting. Bring on the parade of homeless and crazy that typically stroll our block. More Authentic New York Experiences ahead.............
