End Of An Era
We've pointed all the incoming conventioneers in the right direction for their pizza needs. Sadly, one of the bars most responsible for the late-night drunken slice craving has closed its doors.
I gotta admit, I was never a huge fan of the Idiot, particularly in the post-smoking ban era, when the overwhelming stench of vomit was no longer masked by the heavy smoke. Whatever. It's not like its appeal had anything to do with how good of a bar it was.
Their closing due to increased rents no doubt paves the way for yet another uber-trendy Meatpacking District club that I won't want or be able to get into. With the Little West 12th/Gansevoort/Greenwich intersection fast turning into Downtown Disney for dudes in striped button-down shirts, my only request is for The Old Homestead to lock in its lease if it hasn't already.
