Saw Warren Buffet taking cash out yesterday
Great, now I'm going to have the soundtrack to Music Man going through my head all day.
Tad's steak it was I believe. Right next to Luchow's
Yes, that was the site of Tad's. RIP to it and that great red-flocked wallpaper it had.
The Royal Red Wallpaper had a velvet quality and a texture - must've been impossible to clean - why Tads was such a dump.
Oh fantastic! I was just saying what we needed on the block was another bank! Oh joy!
@Anon 10:54 - that is what flocked wallpaper is - it's part paper, part cut velvet. Very popular in Victorian parlors and bordellos, and yes, a real dust-catcher. But I prefer to think of Tad's not as a dump, but as a faded dowager, who despite not being in the best of shape was ever friendly and welcoming. I still remember how nice the smiling guys behind the counter always were.
@Spike, I was humming that tune as I clicked on the comments. http://youtu.be/AaT0s6Gx2FI
people do need banks you know. you gonna leave your money in your apartment?
"gonna leave your money in your apartment?"probably a good idea - but only if you have millions
Jeez as a kid I ate at both Tad's Steak and Lüchow's on more special occasions [now of course its anither NYU toilet]... running around S.Klein & Mays... I feel old now.
