When two cars beat as one

This happened today around noon on Avenue A and Seventh Street, per Salim ...

It's not immediately clear what happened (other than that the two cars drove straight into each other, perhaps in a game of chicken where no one really wins).

Looking for answers about this chicken's death in La Plaza Cultural

[Photo from April by Cheyenne]

On Monday, there was a lot of speculation over the death of Hyacinth, one of the chickens at La Plaza Cultural, the community garden on the southwest corner of Ninth Street and Avenue C... fueled in part by this update on the Citizen app...

We never heard anything else to substantiate this report of a sacrifice. In any event, there are flyers up now at La Plaza and surrounding streets asking for more information...

...there is a $50 reward as well...

As we understand it, the garden's remaining two chickens are going to an upstate farm today... a move that had already been in the works before Monday's incident.

[Updated] Veggie burgers confirmed for former Dirt Candy space on East 9th Street

An EVG reader has noted a steady stream of people coming in and out of the former Dirt Candy space on East Ninth Street this week. Paper still covers the windows on the storefront between Avenue A and First Avenue.

As we first reported on April 28, a menu for a jokey place called Chickens arrived in the window (Chicken Dip with Chicken Chips!)...

... later we heard that this will be a quick-serve restaurant serving vegetarian sandwiches. Eater confirmed yesterday that Del Posto pastry chef Brooks Headley is opening Superiority Burger, specializing in veggie burgers and other vegetarian fare.

Headley's creations have been attracting lines wherever he has sold them, including Christmas Day from the Dirt Candy location.

The space is expected to open to the public very soon. As soon as today maybe.

Dirt Candy closed here at the end of last August to move to a larger space on Allen Street.

Updated 6-25

The space is now open as of tonight.

What the cluck? Chickens in the works for former vegetarian hotspot Dirt Candy on East 9th Street

[EVG photo from 2013]

The popular vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy closed at 430 E. Ninth St. at the end of last August ahead of its relocation to a larger space on Allen Street.

In November 2013, Dirt Candy chef Amanda Cohen told us that she was unsure what would become of the small Ninth Street location between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Yesterday, EVG regular William Klayer spotted this flyer on the former Dirt Candy space... a menu for something called Chickens... specializing in, well, chicken... chicken any way that you want it...

In an email to us last night, Cohen said that she sold the space, but couldn't divulge any other details at the moment.

So we hope to find out who's behind these chickens soon...

Someone was dressed like a chicken today in Tompkins Square Park, and we don't know why

OK then. Some kind of video/film shoot… Does anyone know what this was for? (Really wrong answers are also encouraged.)

Today in photos of a pile of raw chicken on Avenue B

From farm to sidewalk? Several readers have noted this at East Third Street. Via EVG reader Steven...

Given the temperature, the chicken should be ready to turn in about 15 minutes.

Introducing the latest line of defense against the Tompkins Square Park rats

Not the guitar player!

After writing that stupid headline, I did a little research. We may be on to something here. From the Success With Poultry blog:

Rats are primarily nocturnal animals, so if you are regularly seeing them in the day, it probably means that you have a lot of them. They are not interested in your chickens as such, but they are interested in the food that your chickens are eating ... A rat might attack a chicken, but an angry chicken can be a mighty foe, and it is not unknown for chickens to kill (and eat) rats.

Life lesson for today: an angry chicken can be a mighty foe
