So with that in mind. The wall-mounted machine, with its credit card-only payment system, made its NYC premiere yesterday at the neighborhood's Pub-Crawling Capital — the Village Pourhouse on Third Avenue at East 11th Street.
Per the Post:
At its debut location, the machine is the perfect one-stop-shop for guys looking to get lucky. It sells minty gum and mouthwash and will soon feature condoms and Old Spice cologne.
“People are here a lot of times to meet new people of the opposite sex. It’s important to have fresh breath and smell great,” said Brian Shimmerlik, the mastermind behind the machine.
Wow. Couldn't think to shit shower & shave before leaving the house huh? Fuckin' douchehandle. Btw Grieve I can read today.
Yeah, everything seems to be back in place. For now!
Why does this make me think of the nasty restrooms at truck stops?
btw - this is just more of Bloomberg selling space to make money. He's caused food trucks to proliferate, sidewalk vendors to show up everywhere, and now he's selling wall space. I'd bet anything there's an advertising component to this, too. Just like the "new" (and shiny) newsstands that are used for display ads.
BTW 2 - The door or one of those newstands chopped off Jerry's finger at his Astor Place stand. The wind blew, he was shutting the door... and the unthinkable happened.
Old Spice! Woo hoo!
Seriously though, those things are only important *before* you get drunk. I wonder how well they'll really do?
As long as I can still get my brand of Spanish Fly from my EV bar of choice, I will remain unaffected.
"with its credit card-only payment system" A vending machine that doesn't take cash or coins. That speaks volumes. To me at least.
how about earplug machines at indie rock venues
just read the comment about Jerry - someone PLEASE contact the media to do this story!
my love and strength goes out to him, my god....
@ Anon 12:06- Ha! they still make that shit?
Let me know if anyone ever installs a vending machine that sells Jade East.
I'm not sure what should happen with Jerry at the newstand. All he wants is to be left alone and run the newstand. Of course, since the new stands went up and Bloomberg and Co. went on an assault to collect as much $$$$ from everywhere as they can - they hit him up with possible eviction, since he (might) not legally be licensed to operate the stand. (see stories elsewhere for background info).
But yeah, the VERY DANGEROUSLY designed door did what I said it did. AND THEN he had to wait in the emergency room for SEVEN HOURS until he finally got treated.
He was worried about how to pay the hospital bill, but he said other than that he didn't want money.
I don't live in the city anymore, so I don't have the latest.
I think it's worth a story, from at list the Villager.... and/or the tabloids. (but ONLY if it will somehow do him some good. Otherwise, forget it)
Do you know when this happened?
I think it was right about the time Hurricane Sandy happened. So Oct 29 or so.
