The Day | Rain and Not Much Else

morning glowKevin Farley

Good morning, East Village.

If you were expecting to wake up to a belated white Christmas — well, at least be assured that the MTA was really ready for it this time.

On an acknowledged “quiet news day,” the word is out on Mighty Quinn’s, the new barbecue restaurant on Second Avenue — the word being “pretty good”.

And in the absence of anything new to report, let’s take you back thirty years to “rockers, rappers, breakers & scratchers”–and the Lower East Side Girls Choir–at East 10th Street’s Limbo Lounge.

The Day | Suzy Snowflake Comes to Town

Never forgetScott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

As David Schwimmer’s East Sixth Street mansion nears completion, residents displaced by Hurricane Sandy are getting a little more help this week. Listings geared to their needs are being posted in a special section at the no-fee rental site Urban Edge. Reports say landlords will strive to be flexible about length of lease and security deposits.

A less depressing way to get your life turned upside down will become available if plans for a flying trapeze center at Hamilton Fish Park come to fruition.

On the party side of the street, get your vintage frock out for a batch of 1950s cocktails and Christmas cartoons like “Suzy Snowflake” at the Merchant House Museum — and be sharp about it. Last Friday’s shindig sold out.

If you’re looking for sustenance, Mighty Quinn’s, which recently shed its plywood in the old Vandaag space, is strongly rumored to be unveiling its slow-smoked brisket today. But if you’re just looking to stay home and browse through pretty neighborhood pictures, consider Bowery Boogie’s selection of the year in Instagram.
