Several readers have pointed out that the Continental expounded on their (tongue-in-cheek) ban on the word literally. Their stated goal now, per the updated flyer above, is to stop “Kardashianism.”
Bar owner Trigger Smith told Grub Street yesterday that the sign is not meant to be serious, though he does hate the word literally.
Per Grub Street:
"I had a woman from Miami the other night tell me it's happening down there," he says. "And it’s not just millennials. Now you hear newscasters using 'literally' every three minutes on the Sunday news shows. What’s annoying is people aren't even aware they're saying it. How could you be so unaware of your words that it's coming out every couple minutes?"
There are also posted notices stating that the bar's last day here on Third Avenue at St. Mark's Place is July 1...
Also updated: it is now six shots of anything for $12. Previously five shots for $12. And five for $10 before that.
Anyway, as previously reported, Real Estate Equities Corporation plans to demolish the existing low-rise buildings at 3 St. Mark’s Place, 23 and 25-27 Third Ave. to make way for a 7-story office building.
H/T Eden to way back when!
