Lab 321 rolls out its ice cream signage on St. Mark's Place

Workers yesterday hoisted the Lab 321 letters on St. Mark's Place, where the rolled ice cream purveyors are setting up shop here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

Lab 321 will be the third shop to open this year in the East Village serving the traditional Thai street food ... there's Roll It Up on Seventh Street and Pink Bear on East 14th Street.

The previous tenant at 27 St. Mark's Place, The Sock Man, closed in January after a reported rent hike via new landlord Raphael Toledano.

Doesn't "roll it up" also have the connotation of bringing something to an end, stopping something? I think that's apropos for this latest trend. Enough with this infantile shit.

Agree.

If I could find out the current Thai street food trend over in Thailand, I could get a jump on everyone who is going to be doing it next year.

Nothing makes we want to eat someplace like a laboratory equipment in their logo.

The infantilization of the East Village continues.
