Good morning, East Village.

DNA Info attended the historical plaque ceremony at Justus Schwab’s former saloon on East First Street. The Greenwich Village Society for Historical Preservation, along with Phil Hartman of Two Boots, plan to install similar plaques at least once a year, and Mr. Hartman is hoping to commemorate the former home of Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable at 19-25 St. Mark’s Place.

Speaking of Andy, The Times reviews “Jukebox Jackie,” based on the life of Warhol superstar Jackie Curtis. Charles Isherwood says that at times the new production at La MaMa “comes close to mimicking the foggy ramblings of someone on an intense trip,” but Justin Bond “most naturally embodies the Curtis who bloomed briefly before drug addiction felled him at the age of 38.”

The folks at the Lower East Side Preservation Initiative tell us that on Sunday at 1 p.m., theater historian Cezar Del Valle will lead a tour of the East Village’s Yiddish theater district, once known as the “Jewish Rialto.” As part of the tour, an architect involved in the restoration of Village East Cinema will talk about the theater that opened in 1926 as The Yiddish Art Theater. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on Sunday, and can be reserved here

Mickey Boardman of Paper is gearing up for his Celebrity Sidewalk Sale at Screaming Mimi’s tomorrow. “We gather truckloads of new and vintage designer clothing, accessories and beauty products which we sell at bargain prices to benefit Citta, a charity that builds schools, women’s centers and clinics in India and Nepal,” says Mr. Mickey.

City Planning Commission chair Amanda Burden tells The Observer that NYU’s scaled-back expansion plan is “perfectly balanced between the needs if the community and the needs of the university.”

The Times notes that the Marie-Christine Giordano Dance Company is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the premiere of “In and Out,” “which explores forgoing security in favor of change,” at Danspace.

Gothamist takes an early look at Calliope in the former Belcourt space and recommends the spicy marinated mackerel with avocado and black sesame, the warm octopus salad with fingerling potatoes, and the traditional Provencal tomato tart with savory and olives, which “comes out thin so it’s not too filling, and generously garnished with olives and greens.”

Grub Street hears that Crif Dogs and Baohaus will offer concessions at this year’s Bonnaroo festival, and more exciting for New Yorkers, Crif Dogs has announced that on July 4, it will go up against the annual Nathan’s hot dog eating contest with the Crif Dog Classic, in which Takeru Kobayashi will compete against other competitive eaters.

Eater gets wind of a cocktail deal at The Beagle. “On Monday nights from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., The Beagle is offering three cocktails based on the spirit of the month for $10 each. June is rum month.”

Eater points out that at least 21 restaurants closed in May, including East Village spots Angels & Kings, Friend House, Nolita House, Zeitzeff on Avenue B, and Vandaag.

And today’s celebrity sighting: a Post tipster spotted Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana at Empellon Cocina.
