A Feast (and some chalk) on St. Mark's Place

We were unaware that today is the Feast of St. Mark's Place between Third Avenue and Second Avenue... sponsored by the Village Alliance ... and running until 8 p.m. 

EVG reader Jacob Ford shared a few photos from the block...
There is artfully arranged chalk too...
... and people are putting it to use...

Protection for a tree garden on St. Mark's Place

Photos by Donald Davis

This past weekend, Boyd constructed an elaborate medieval fence on one of the adopted tree garden plots outside 99 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

The fence is to help remind dog walkers and people looking for a place to sit that every garden space is precious...

Mr. Kim arrives on St. Mark's Place

A very St. Mark's Place-like business has opened on St. Mark's Place. 

Mr. Kim is a new tattoo-piercing shop at 22 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. (Thanks to Steven for the photo!)

We also noticed two display cases of budget sunglasses and some umbrellas for sale out front on Friday evening. 

Mr. Kim takes over the retail space from WAGA, which sold handmade goods primarily from West Africa. The shop closed in the spring after 22 years in business.

Glizzy's bringing hot dogs to this block of St. Mark's Place

Signage for Glizzy's is up now at 34 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

This will be the second outpost for the brand that got its start last year in Williamsburg, and boasting "Brooklyn's Best Hot Dogs." (Current signage is missing the 's on Brooklyn for now.)

Johnny Huynh, the founder and co-owner of Glizzy's grew up in Bushwick and operates Lucy's Vietnamese restaurants in Brooklyn.

Some background via Greenpointers:
Glizzy's menu kicks off with the "N.Y. Classic" that includes onions in red sauce, sauerkraut, and spicy brown mustard. Next, there's a dog called "Houston, We Have A Problem" with smoked brisket chili, chopped and fried onions, and a cheddar cheese sauce. 

The "OG Lucy's" is a nod to Huynh's Vietnamese restaurant and has cucumber, cilantro, basil, mayo, pickled carrots, hoisin, and sriracha. Next up is the "Mr. Lee" with kimchi, scallions, furikake, fried garlic, Korean BBQ sauce, and sesame oil. 

"The Ocky" is halal and includes chopped onions, tomatoes, harissa, and yogurt sauce, while the "Phil Me Up" contains potato salad, scallions, furikake, and curry ranch dressing. 

No word on an opening date for Glizzy's, which is nestled among other quick-serve options on the block. The storefront was previously the ice cream shop Lucky Star.

Bake Culture opening an outpost on St. Mark's Place

Photo yesterday by Steven

Bake Culture, a Taiwan-based bakery chain selling Asian and European pastries, is opening an outpost at 22 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. The signage went up yesterday.

This will be the fourth NYC location for the brand, which also has a storefront down on the Bowery (No. 48). 

According to this 2018 post at Eater, three Taiwanese celebrities — former boy band members — started the company. 

The bakery's specialties include a variety of tarts and cakes, and you can find the menu here. 

The previous business in this storefront was Kimomi Pet, which closed during the pandemic.
