“In theory, Mars Bar has the option to move back into the new building, but if it does it is going to be nearly impossible for the bar to recreate the smell and look of decades of abuse. But don’t despair drunks, anything is possible when you put your mind to it!”
Another E Vil institution bites the dust. Yes, Mars Bar is GROSS, but everyone should go at least once! It’s got character, history, and it’s the kind of place you’d tell your kids about. It seems the balance has officially tipped away from those places in favor of Starbucks, the latest west coast fro-yo joints, and teeny bop chain clothing stores. Boo.
Does anyone know of a wedding registry for vintage kitchenware? We’re inheriting my Nana’s 1940s white china and a few sets of silver, so with those big things out of the way, we’ll have the ability to register for more fun things. While in NC scouring the flea market, I found myself wishing we could register there - sour cream glasses, milk glass, and 1950s sturdy pyrex. Sure, some new stuff is necessary, but let’s be honest - it’s all pretty boring. Etsy maybe?
On a related note, I was so happy to discover that while Anthropologie doesn’t have a registry, they do have a “Wish list,” which we’ll definitely take advantage of. I’ve wanted these egg crates and ceramic fruit baskets for years, but it hasn’t seemed practical to buy them for ourselves. Hooray for happy home things!
All “AM NY” reported this morning was that they were canceling the concerts this year, with no reason given. How could it be?! The Philharmonic in the park is possibly my single most favorite NYC night of the year. Thankfully, the trusty Times came through with this article. Sweet relief…
“All of the publications are edited by women in their 20s who first built a following by blogging. It may seem strange for young creative types to be starting online publications that so closely mimic traditional magazines, particularly when that means adopting the conventions of print in such a literal — some might even say unthinking — way. But in the blogosphere, it turns out, many see print as conferring a sense of legitimacy and distinction.”
I’m straight up giddy about having Whitney and Dustin of Oh, Darling! shoot our wedding. I’ve followed Darling Dexter for several years now and might have a little couple crush on these two - so much so that Eric, poking fun at me, suggested I ask if their friendship was included in our package.
