The Day | Snow Drifts Our Way Again

January 07. 2011 SnowKelly Samardak

Good morning, East Village.

Noise-burdened neighbors may be relieved to hear EV Grieve’s news that in the Community Board’s meeting last night, they didn’t renew hookah bar La Vie’s license. Of course, La Vie wasn’t so happy at the verdict.

Meanwhile, also check out Grieve for shots of yesterday’s bustle in Tompkins Square Park, with the filming of CBS police drama series Blue Bloods.

In case you haven’t heard yet, more snow is headed our way this evening. If you’re looking to stay warm to watch the flurry, you might venture to Lebanese restaurant Balade at 1st Avenue and 13th Street, where they’ll be offering a free glass of wine to toast their one-year anniversary.

Meanwhile, on a more somber note, Engine 28 has posted the funeral time for its noble firefighter, Roy Chelsen, whose death from cancer was announced yesterday.

Stay safe and stay warm.
