The venerable Veniero's is celebrating 120 years at 342 E. 11th St. today.
And Veniero's is making it a dual anniversary, as Lisha Arino at DNAinfo reports:
The East 11th Street bakery will hand out about 340 cookies designed to celebrate two milestones: 120 years since the shop opened in its current location in 1894, and 120 years since the Third Street Music School Settlement opened in the neighborhood as well.
The cookies will feature the two groups' logos, as well as the words “Celebrating 120 Years 1894-2014," said Robert Zerilli, co-owner of Veniero's.
“They’re big cookies, the size of your hands,” Zerilli said.
And they'll be some outdoor caroling by the school's students ... here's a map with the caroling info...
