And on Avenue A at East Third Street ... White Furniture is closing its showroom...

... and they've already been Wacky Wok'd ...

... and happy 63rd birthday Stiv Bators... wherever you are...

Stiv Bators died after being hit by a taxi in France in June of 1990 - he left hospital saying he was not injured, before seeing a doctor, went back to hotel, went to bed and died from the concussion he suffered from the accident - Really too bad, the Lords Of The New Church were at least, a decent band.

I must have see the Wacky Wok guy (the same one you did) a few minutes after he hit White Furniture. I ran across him for the second time in about a week today at 7th and A. I tried to get a picture, but he disappeared into the crowd before I could get the camera up.

I'm usually the first to mock gimmick restaurant concepts, but an all-croque eatery sounds fantastic! I personally like a "croque madame" (the one with a fried egg on top).

Hopefully you can get Coke in glass bottles or a nice demi-pression too.
