If that was beer and not soda, I’d be even more impressed.

Now THIS is a way to display soda.

CBGBs is Back, Maybe. Gothamist says they have it on good authority that the legendary club, which closed in 2006 and became an NYU gift shop (I think), may be opening soon, with more information coming out in the next few weeks. Where will the new CBs be? Is the East Village of yesterday the same East Village? Will the Community Board let it pass?

LifeBike. EV Grieve posts a video from a company called Red Peak, which made a video from something they called a “unique urban experiment.” They tied a bike — bells, basket, lights and all — to a rack and took a photo of it every day for a year. The resulting video shows the bike eventually getting ripped apart (although it took longer than I thought.) They call the project LIFEBICYCLE: 365  days in the life of a New York City bike. Spoiler: The basket is gone by day 214.

"We all do it," said the world’s totally coolest 18-year-old to the Daily News. “It just seems to be part of the culture of growing up in New York City.” Who agrees?

You know, something may go down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.

That’s Governor Chris Christie’s response to a heckling protester at a Mitt Romney rally in New Hampshire. Christie continues to perpetuate the New Jersey tough guy jerk stereotype more than any boozing, overtanned guido at the shore. (Or as he calls it, "Jersey Style.")

“I’m not so off the reservation on social issues,” [Councilman Eric Ulrich] joked. The progressive views he holds come from a sense of moral imperative, he said. “It’s the Catholic guilt at work,” he said. “You think Jews have it bad. Trying being a former seminarian.”

If you visited a friend at their apartment and used their bathroom and saw that they had this shower curtain, would you unfriend them?

Old-School Gangs in the ’50s. Flavorpill (by way of Retronaut) has this photoset of gangs in 1950s Brooklyn, hair greased and sleeves wrapped around their cigarettes. The cool, unaffected looks of these guys and girls — who are now probably in their 70s — would fit in in the Brooklyn of today, I think.
