EAST VILLAGE— Fork in the Road investigates this whole Kosher Village/Tahini situation and reports that the owner realized you can't make money keeping glatt kosher hours: "...owner Nissim Oron didn't realize that there weren't enough Orthodox Jewish people in the East Village to sustain a glatt kosher restaurant, a designation that requires closing on shabbat and for holidays...'After three months I realized that this neighborhood is not the one for glatt kosher,' Oron said. '...so not to confuse anyone, we took 'kosher' out of the name.'" [Fork in the Road]

SAN DIEGO— Any Top Gun fans out there? According to Eater LA, the bar where Goose sings 'Great Balls of Fire' burned down, "melting all the years of memorabilia along the way, including the jukebox that played 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' in the final scene of the movie, the piano and other prop."
