Happy Columbus Day

[Via EVG reader Steven Matthews]

A happier day if you are off work today (like me) for the holiday... a reader asked if the flag went up outside Veniero's Pasticceria and Caffe on East 11th Street in honor of Columbus Day ... seems as if it has been up for longer than that...

Anyway, here's a photo of the place in 1969 ... it opened in 1894.

Nice old photo, grieve! Although I respect the long-history of this place, I really don't find their desserts all that appealing - anything from The Black Hound kicks Veniero's ass.
