EV Grieve Eatery Etc.: 1st sign of Pride and Joy; $1 slices at Vinny Vincenz; and more

As we first reported in November, the former Lucky Cheng's space on First Avenue will become the first NYC outpost for renowed BBQ chef Myron Mixon's Pride & Joy BBQ... and signs are up to help direct traffic for deliveries...


... we don't recall the part about "draft house" and "honky-tonk" ... why does that put the fear in us?


Anyway, hopefully Pride & Joy will have good ventilation...

You've noticed the proliferation of $1 (or 99-cent!) slice places around... especially on East 14th Street and nearby First Avenue... Papa John's and Joey Pepperoni both offer cheap slices on First ... and on East 14th Street, there's the new 99-cent place as well as another Joey Pepperoni... not to mention 7-Eleven...


So it may not be a huge surprise that Vinny Vincenz Pizza on First Avenue near East 14th Street is now selling a $1 slice, as Crazy Eddie pointed out last week...


Well, we'll take anything from Vinny's anytime over these other plastic factories...

Several people have asked if we know when the new Nevada Smiths space is opening on Third Avenue near East 13th Street... to be honest, we've lost track of what's happening here... DNAinfo got an inside look at the new space last summer, and the projected opening date was August at that time... According to a Sept. 5 post on the Nevada Smiths Facebook page: "The new location should be ready by October." A Dec. 22 post said that they'd be open in January...

Here's how it looked this past Thursday...


Meanwhile, you can still watch the matches at Nevada's temp home at Webster Hall...

Vinny Vincenz, the guitarist who replaced Ace in KISS? The composer of the smash hit "Lick It Up"??? Ok, I'll check out the slices.

HONKY TONK???
I am OUTRAGED that the massively INFERIOR culture from the rest of this GODAWFUL country is being imported here and used to POLLUTE ALL THINGS SACRED TO NYC!!!
F*CK THIS DUMBA$$ PLACE!
I hope they fail miserably. What a retch hole for CORNBALLS and FRAT IDIOTS..

Actually, it's probably the Harley drivers from the hell's angels that would be interested in the bbq place. Along with many others.

But go ahead, let's insult "honky tonk," "blue grass," BB King, and whomever else you don't like.

Hey remember that time that CBGB stood for Country, Blue Grass, and Blues?

The good old days. But what's a "cornball?"

Rumor has it that there is also a 2 Bros. going in on 1st between 13 & 14. By the way, this is all more evidence of the reality TV show, Grieve(beware of the hidden cameras!)
