EV Grieve Etc.: Mourning edition

[Sixth Street and Avenue C]

RIP Atlas Barber School (Jeremiah's Vanishing New York)

Teen shot in back with BB gun near Campos Plaza on East 12th Street (New York Post)

A 25-story building in the works for vacant Chrystie Street lot (BoweryBoogie)

NYC schools ignoring gay bullying (The Village Voice)

Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo talks downtown NYC (Lower Manhattan Diary)

Delays for Delancey Street safety upgrades (The Lo-Down)

A look at Calliope now open on Second Avenue at East Fourth Street (Grub Street)

About the larger Rai Rai Ken on East 10th Street (Fork in the Road)

The spirit of Coney Island (The Gog Log)

...and Goggla passed along these photos of something called Porchetta.Hog on East Fifth Street just east of Second Avenue...

...neither of us had noticed it before... and the menu says they opened on May 8.

Chowhound readers noted its arrival as early as May 14... and according to Chowhound commenters, the place is not affiliated with Porchetta over on Seventh Street... Anyone try this place yet?

I find it odd that they refer to mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup as, "sauces!"

@Marty - needs more ranch dressing!

@Goggla: Ha ha ha! Took a second for that to sink in!

I ate a coupla sandwiches at P.Hog: deeply meh, and the guy behind the counter talked shit about Porchetta.

Ha! P.Hog.

It was like those guys at The Meatball Factory trashing talking the Meatball Shop.
