The CBGB restaurant is now open at the Newark airport, as you can see.
Now what to eat there?
Imagine the possibilities via the folks at Lucky Peach, who have created a parody menu...
"All orders come with a Suicide salad." (We can dream!) Heh.
Here's the actual menu via @WFMU ...
Meanwhile! We're now in the Backlash to the Backlash Phase...
In response to headlines such as 'Birthplace of punk' CBGB to be reborn as airport theme restaurant, throwing human progress into doubt (Mashable) ... the Post has countered with Stop whining – Newark Airport is where CBGB belongs.
Even if the grand opening of CBGB in Newark were to feature a reunited Talking Heads playing, Richard Lloyd and Tom Verlaine working as busboys, while Debbie Harry waits tables and serves up Kristal’s original recipe chili, it still wouldn’t change the fact that CBGB is basically a brand that represents New York City to people who don’t live in New York City. That’s the way it’s been for years, and that’s why the idea of it being reborn as a restaurant in Newark fits perfectly.
