Updated: Save Ray's Day set: Feb. 6 (and a new three-day ultimatum from the landlord)
The above photo of Ray's was taken by Joann Jovinelly, who kindly let me repost this from her Flickr account.
So! Sidewalk Cafe, 94 Avenue A at Sixth Street, will be hosting a benefit show on Saturday, Feb. 6 for Ray's Candy Store. More details to follow. If you want to play or help out in any way, then please get in touch with Leah at:
Meanwhile, Bob Arihood, who has been reporting on Ray's long before anyone else, noted the brisk business at Ray's on Wednesday night... good news to hear. Meanwhile, as Bob reports, Ray turns 77 on Monday. Will there be any surprise visitors, like dancers?
UPDATE: Somehow I inexplicably missed this in Bob's post: Last night, Ray received another three-day ultimatum from the landlord. As Bob noted in the comments: "It was very troubling for those who heard about it."
And, as a reminder...
There's now a Save Ray's Twitter feed, which will have the latest updates...
And there's the Save Ray's Facebook page, which ]has more than 1,200 members now...
And tomorrow night:
There's a protest/fundraiser/street party Saturday night at 8 for Ray's Candy Store. It's being organized by Black Ops Bob and the Slacktivists.
