Found on a rack at the Salvation Army on 4th Ave.

RED HOOK— According to Serious Eats New York, the Red Hook vendors might soon be open for business on weekdays and long holiday weekends. [SE]

FORT GREENE— Last night Daily Intel reported that some neighbors are trying to shut down the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene. Pete Wells compels us all to think about the papusas: "Does this mean pupusas are endangered in Fort Greene, too? And what about the ice creams from Blue Marble, Italian sandwiches from PaPa Lima and Mexican ices from Chida? I mean, neighborhood disputes are all well and fine, but we are talking about one of the city’s foremost grazing grounds here." [Daily Intel; Diner's Journal]

SOHO— Cutty posts a viral YouTube video in which some joker tries to pay for a meal at Lure using only pennies (to promote a new OfficeMax campaign). Cutty's right: it's completely cringe worthy, yet it's hard not to watch it all the way through. [YouTube; Cutlets]
