Billy Hurricane's now apparently called Station B

We've recently noticed some changes to the exterior of Billy Hurricane's on Avenue B near East Second Street... that neon orange is gone, for starters ... Yesterday @danielpmcd pointed out that the bar has a new name — Station B. No word on any of the Billy Hurricane's social media sites about a name change... back in March, we spotted a listing for bartenders that noted:

Tattooed Bartenders Wanted!
Job Description
Upcoming Lower East Side / East Village Bar w/ Kitchen Looking for some New Staff for New Location!
Bourbon... Beers... Burgers... Blastin' Rock!

What we are looking for...

>> Male or Female
>> Age 21- 31
>> Professional, Reliable & Punctual
>> Experienced (Mixology a Plus)
>> Outgoing & Fun
>> Tattoo'd ( not a unicorn on your ankle kind of tattoo)
>> Non-Complete-Alcoholic

The Idle Hands sign had stayed up and moved over as well as the orange sign being gone. Which made it seem like they just decided to make the whole thing Idle Hands. Judging by the writeup it seems they are going with that theme and just changing the name altogether to re-christen the whole place.

Confusingly, when I walked by the other day, they had hand-painted on the window something about "Billy Hurricane's Enter To The Right!". Not that exactly, but same difference.

Definitely confusing.

But definitely good if they realized the frattiness of Billy's wasn't working and the rock and roll Idle Hands survived.

What a terrible, generic name. Idle Hands sounds way better. Station B sounds like some cheesy club in North Jersey.

Idle Hands is still in the basement with the entrance on the far left. It's only Billy H that's changing format.

Is it legal to post an age range in a help wanted ad? Just wondering.

I don't think so. Maybe I should put in an application and sue them for age discrimination when they don't hire me :)

Fuck That shit place! Cynical douche-hole that had no and will never have East Village credibility at all and try to fake by wearing it on their sleeves! Billy Hurricane's was an embarrassment! Check out the YouTube video that they had. Shitty Queens type weekend crowd and horrible food and fake NOLA vibe. It was ran by frat boys carpetbaggers who should be in suburbia who used GroupOn type stunts to get cheapskates in their crap environment for their shitty beer and food! Idle Hands is fake shit too!!!! Good riddance!!!!!!
