Monday was a fantastically warm Memorial Day, so the only posts that went up were a profile of the great tattoo parlor/ art gallery The End is Near, as well as a few screenshots of The Gate on The Food Network the night before.
On Tuesday I noticed that Boardwalk Empire would be filming for the next couple days on Carroll Street. Anyone see any flappers milling about? Pizzatown also re-opened in the North Slope after a month-long renovation, and it's still as satisfying as ever, with a much improved layout.
Wednesday brought the release of Here's Park Slope 2.0, which will also feature lots of local deals and coupons (there are already a few good coupons up there; just sign up and print them out). Also, in a rather odd development, Chiles and Chocolate and Amin Indian Restaurant both packed up and swapped spaces. Chalk this up as a win for Chiles and Chocolate, long one of the more underrated Mexican restaurants in the borough.
On Thursday the fiasco behind the name of the new Greek restaurant on Seventh near Union reached comic proportions, as the owners put up a sign calling it Faros, even though it's clearly spelled Φaros. Or is is Pharos? Ugh.
On Friday I wondered what the hell this thing on Fifth Avenue is. As of right now I'm leaning towards a camera that catches people who drive through a red light, knocked out of place. The Petco coming to Seventh also put up some signage, and the recently-opened Couleur Cafe all the way down Seventh has got some serious foodporn going on.
