From the EVG inbox from Friday evening…
People seem to have forgotten their Lamaze techniques and are panicking over the opening of our bar, Gestations.
In light of this recent media coverage, we thought we’d take this opportunity to give you a better idea of where we’re coming from.
Just like any other bar, Gestations’ only objective is to provide a specific segment of the population a place to gather, relax and socialize.
We are not advocating reckless behavior in any way — that is the responsibility of each individual — simply seeking only to provide a judgment-free place where people can congregate and enjoy a drink or two.
We’d love for you to learn more and get to know us a little better before passing any judgments and encourage you do so on Facebook, Twitter or [redacted] for exclusive photos, information, and the latest on bars like us.
The broker for the storefront told us that the building's landlord rented the space for the sign for a month. (You have a few weeks left to enjoy.) The bar's supposed opening date is Oct. 25.
The storefront at 72 Avenue A at East Fifth Street remains on the market. According to the active listing, the asking price is $7,800.
