September's CB3/SLA docket is amazingly small

Wow, just nine items (nine items!) on the September CB3/SLA committee agenda. That just might be a record-low.

Anyway! First of all, the meeting is Sept. 8 at 6:30 p.m. — Community Board 3 Office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

And now!

Applications within Saturated Areas
• To be Determined, 98 Ave C (wb)

This is the vacant storefront between Alphabet City Beer Co. and Alphabet City Wine Co. Don't have info on this applicant just yet.

• Taqueria Lower East Side (Barraza Foods Inc), 121 Orchard St (op)

• Nadico Hotel LLC, 163 Orchard St (op)

• Epicure Kitchen LLC, 45 Ave B (wb)

Oh, one of those long-empty spaces where LeSouk enjoyed its reign of terror.

Sidewalk Cafe Application
• Berkli Parc Cafe (HH Hospitality LLC), 61 Delancey St (small unenclosed)

New Liquor License Applications
• Taqueria Saint Marks (Barraza Foods Inc), 79 St Marks Pl (op)

• Sliders (Aleppo Slider LLC), 647 E 11th St (upgrade to op)

Haven't met anyone who has been to this place.

• To be Determined, 171 E B'way (op)

• Huertas (Molinero LLC), 107 1st Ave (upgrade to op)

Huertas, a restaurant featuring "the cuisine of Northern Spain," opened back in April.

The"Nadico Hotel LLC, 163 Orchard St (op)" item on the docket is for one of the new hotels opening in Hell Square.

The owner wants to have the 2nd floor's open floor (yes, it is built OPEN and unenclosed) and its open roof space to have 24/7 bar access.

If he's successful, the patrons would be able to drunkenly yell and woo it all day and night long (to loud music no doubt) and there won't be a damn thing anything could do about it.

The whole thing is ridiculous and we who live in Hell Square need to go to the CB meeting and voice our concerns over these plans. The noise the patrons will make will be unbearable. Enough is enough!

I applaud Taqueria and TBD (maybe that'll be really the name of this joint) to go straight for the throat and not perform the obligatory song and dance to CB3 of applying for wine and beer license first and then upgrade for a liquor license later but instead going for the full liquor license right away.

As for Sliders -- a modern-rustic themed sports bar & restaurant serving upscale bar favorites such as gourmet sliders, imported beers, and signature house sangria. Sliders will also boast four 46-inch flat screen televisions in addition to a primary 75-inch flat screen. Guests will be able to catch various seasonal sports games throughout the year. Combining the classic flair of a sports bar with the twist of an East Village bar will make Sliders a hotspot for sports enthusiasts and casual bar-goers alike.
