The Day | Open for Business

Dumb Cartoon Show!Michelle Rick

Good morning, East Village.

It’s Christmas in March! At least for the cast and crew of DirectTV’s “Damages,” who were filming at Moonstruck Diner on East Fifth Street and Second Avenue yesterday. Thanks to Jason Samuels of NYU Journalism for sending us this photo via Twitter earlier in the day. EV Grieve also has some nice photos of the set, but no sign of “Damages” star, Glenn Close.

Wholesome Foods, a gourmet deli, on Avenue C is now open for business, after the Mini-Market, or “Cobra” Market as locals called it, closed in January. Meanwhile, Death & Co., a bar on East Sixth Street, was temporarily closed last night due to a delay with its liquor license renewal, EV Grieve reports.  Death & Co. will be back open tonight. We reported yesterday how some bar owners are unhappy with the liquor license reform in the East Village.

As for the weather, it’s a little colder today than yesterday, with a high of 35 degrees, so don’t be deceived by the sunny skies on your way out.
