Good morning, East Village.

Jim Gaffigan, no stranger to the neighborhood, made a surprise appearance at EastVille Comedy Club last night. Among other things, he spieled about Whole Foods: “There should just be a garbage can at the entrance with a $ sign on it.” Todd Barry returns to the club’s stage tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday.

“The very embodiment of the East Village zeitgeist, Deee-Lite led a multi-racial, pan-sexual party on wheels for a few years before their worldwide breakout hit, 1990’s ‘Groove Is In The Heart.'” [Dangerous Minds]
