MIDTOWN— Cutlets brings the news that the ill-fated Monkey Bar has been sold by its owners the Glazier Group. There's no word yet on who they've sold it to or what the new owners will do with the restaurant, but we can't say we're all that surprised at the move. Place was always a ghost town. [Cutlets]

UPPER WEST SIDE— A recent DOH'ing on west 72nd Street, and it's a non-shocker: Dallas BBQ. According to their signage, there is an issue of broken pipes, but we've all heard that one before. [EaterWire]

FORT GREENE— Some bad Crimewatch news from Cake Man Raven, courtesy of the police blotter: "First, disgruntled employees charged the famous Fulton Street baker owed them $500,000 in unpaid wages, then hoodlums burglarized his shop overnight on July 27....The thief had taken $250, a flat screen television and the home theater system, all of which were there when the bakery closed at 10:30 pm."

CHELSEA— We don't really get it either but, free food is free food: "A few months ago, Diesel put out a call for artists to submit ideas for a giant mural to be painted on the side of a building at 220 West 19th Street....The winning artist in New York is Jonathan Sandridge; his design, an abstract celebrate this, Diesel is giving away free cheeseburgers tomorrow at 12:30 by the mural on 19th and Seventh Ave." [Racked]

FORT GREENE— The neighborhood's new The General Greene is now serving brunch with items including baked eggs w/ bacon grits & red eye gravy, baked eggs with confit chicken and creamed spinach, and the "fluffer nutter." [EaterWire]
