I was wondering why you never responded...the email must have gotten misdirected.

EV Grieve said...

Ha! So THAT was the reason!

Guess we'll have to plan better for next year's bloggers getaway.

I love Village Paper, and there is nothing to replace it unless you count Party City on 14th which isn't nearly as good.

I saw the fire trucks there this morning, it was all blocked off with at least 30 firemen standing in a huddle in the street, but by then there was no fire to be seen.

Isn't this the same block (around the corner) that burned down about a year ago - just after Ciao for Now opened their outpost there?
