Good Morning, East Village.

Bessie’s back at the Sunburnt Cow on Avenue C, DNAinfo reports.  After being stolen from the East Ninth Street bar in October, the owner has finally replaced its neon mascot, and to celebrate, he’s inviting patrons to help “brand” Bessie by writing their names on her.

Brooklyn’s eco-friendly Union Market is coming to Manhattan, and it has found a 6,000-square-foot space at 240 East Houston Street, on Avenue A, to call home. Racked NY reports that this will be Union Market’s largest endeavor, and similar to the Brooklyn outpost, it will offer a beef aging facility and personal shopping services. Union Market is also know for offering neighborhood-themed coffee blends, so what do you think the East Village blend packaging will look like?

In other news, EV Grieve has noticed that Junk, a thrift store on St. Marks, has closed its doors for good after opening them this past September.   This isn’t the first vintage store to close on St. Marks in recent months.  As we reported, Physical Graffiti, a vintage clothing store,   between First Avenue and Avenue A, closed its doors after 16 years because of the bad economy.

As for today’s weather, it’s a little chilly this morning, expect some clouds and a high of 57 degrees today.
