Phil Mushnick on the closing of Bill's Gay Ninties after tomorrow night: "For the regulars, semi-regulars and irregulars, Bill’s lately has been like walking into a crime against nature in progress." (New York Post ... Marty had the scoop on the closure at Tripping With Marty)

And via a reader on Twitter... noted... anyway, we're waiting for the Ranch shampoo..

It is a crime about Bill's, the owner offered to match the new tenant in rent and they're getting booted out anyway.

Other than the MSG, sorbic acid, calcium disodium edta and artificial flavors, this is pretty healthy stuff with only 22% of your daily fat intake and 11% of salt per 2 tbs. You add this to your organic salad and voila! you have something now approved by corporate america

We should totally start a supergroup to protect the community like the one that formed in Greenwich Village to battle NYU.
Villagers for a Sustainable Neighborhood - businesses and residents

you are right, however, it is very hard to organize anyone in this neighborhood.
the politics in this community are as divided as they are in the USA, even among those that agree.
but if you start something sign me up.
