I’ve been insanely busy. The weather has finally started cooperating and so the social life has been packed. I’m preoccupied, too. But happily preoccupied! The blogging has a taken a backseat but I’m still here. Here’s a Blog Buzz to tie you over.
Firstly and most importantly (to me!) is my friend and fellow Greenpointers blogger Joann is excited about the launch of the India Street Mural Project this Saturday. I am really annoyed that I won’t be able to attend due to prior plans but Joann will be there with bells on and so should you. – NbPac
Decider has a trio of local info in one post – Studio B has finally closed (supposedly for good), Motorino is looking at opening a second location in the East Village and there’s someone who hates Peter Luger’s. Blasphemy! – Decider New York
It seems like every other day people are filming around here. More so lately. Just yesterday I was walking home and there was a full crew doing filming in Brooklyn Label. I’m bias to local filming since I have more than one friend who works on movie and television sets and plus people need to stop bitching and moaning when everyone knows it’s so cool to be able to spot your hood on the big screen. Don’t act like it ain’t. – New York Post
What the fuck is up with Ichiran? And more importantly, does anyone give a shit? – Eater
The oldest Community Board Chairman (ours!) retired after nearly 30 years. Hats off to Vincent Abate. – Brookly Eagle
