Let the 'Twin Peaks' references commence

Outside Everyman Espresso on East 13th Street near Third Avenue.

Earlier today, David Lynch and Showtime announced that they will air nine new episodes of "Twin Peaks" in 2016… coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the show's demise after two seasons on ABC in 1990 and 1991.

Excuse me — a DAMN fine cup of coffee…

Everyman Espresso closing for a 'face lift'

Everyman Espresso on East 13th Street will be closing soon for a renovation. Here's the official word via the EE website:

So excited to announce that we’ll be closing down to give our 13th street location a face lift! June 25th through approximately July 25th we will be under construction. We will keep you posted on our progress and hope to re-open swiftly!

Meanwhile, starting today, you can find a pop-up Everyman Espresso at Bikini Bar, the vintage surf shop place in Tribeca, through August.

New York State doesn't ♥ Everyman Espresso's logo

[Cheap-ass EVG Photoshopping]

In which we will learn about section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, 15 USC 1125(a).

It's all about the "I [coffee cup] N Y" logo that Everyman Espresso on East 13th Street has been using these past few years.

The New York Times has the story.

Then, last month, came the letter from agents for the state’s Department of Economic Development.

It said, "Everyman Espresso’s unauthorized and confusingly similar use of the I ♥ NY® logo" violated federal trademark law and implied "a misleading designation of source, origin, endorsement, sponsorship or approval by the New York State Department of Economic Development of your merchandise."

So the Everyman owners ditched everything with the logo.

That wasn't enough for the state, whose attorney is requesting "an accounting of all gross revenues generated during the period when the I ♥ NY® Trademark was used" to establish Everyman Espresso's penalty.

The reaction from Everyman co-owner Sam Penix: "Basically, it's extortion. It's also ironic because we are being threatened by the entity that has vowed to grow our New York business."
