Good morning, East Village.

It seems Bob Arihood (the above tribute to whom was painted by Chico yesterday) wasn’t the only one to tend after injured squirrels. On East Seventh Street near Second Avenue, we spotted a sign explaining that an orphaned baby squirrel has gone missing, and must be returned to a “federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator” because it is too young to crack nutshells for itself.

If IHOP’s new sidewalk canopy leaves you cold, and you’re more a fan of the “Eat Me” sign above Crif Dogs, take note: In honor of the hot dog spot’s 10th anniversary, everything is $1 today, and, according to its Facebook page, there’ll be a party with free rum shots tonight.

Just in time for Game 5 tonight, former Yankees and Mets right fielder Darryl Strawberry will be signing autographs between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. at the Village Pourhouse, reports Bowery Boogie.

Speaking of celebrities: As Winnipeg Free Press notes, Celine Danhier’s new documentary “Blank City” shows how stars like Debbie Harry and Steve Buscemi were part of the “No Wave” film scene of the 80s.

The Times points out a new store on East Seventh Street and Avenue A. Still House is owned by a Pratt graduate from Lithuania, and carries items from near (from glass blower Thaddeus Wolfe) and far (from Scandinavia and Japan).
