Yogurt shop taking over Bleecker Bob's space has a logo with a record on it


[Photo by Benjamin Krieger via Facebook]

Well, you know the story of Bleecker Bob's closing this past spring after a rent hike ... and a Forever Yogurt leasing the space...

As you can see from the above photo, the Chicago-based chain is apparently paying some sort of macabre tribute to Bleecker Bob's by incorporating a record into its logo at this Bleecker Street location...

Here's the Forever Yogurt logo as it usually looks...



There was some brief talk that Bleecker Bob's would continue to sell record from a counter inside the self-serve froyo shop. That never materialized. By the way, we haven't heard any further discussions about Bleecker Bob's opening a new store in the East Village.

Everyone does what they can to hold onto the past.

Way to poke a corpse in the gut with a stick.

It's better than their other logo with the two piles of feces zooming through the air!

Will there be a used yogurt section in there?

Does anyone on this blog actually eat that shit? Just wondering out loud...

People eat this fake food because it gives them the allusion they're eating something healthy. Then they dump 6 pounds of M&Ms, toffee, peanut butter cups and lollipops on it. Sigh...

Probably taking a cue from Daniel Boulud or Varvatos, on how to rape the past and the use of cutesy "homage" to leech off someone else's hard-earned legacy while simultaneously pissing on their grave. Fuck all.

Bleeker Bob's should have closed in 1996 not 2013.

I've never had Forever Yogurt, but I've had 16 Handles. It's very good.

This logo is as tasteless as their product no doubt is.

16 handles is what you get from eating there!

It would actually be cooler if they called it flying turds.
