FRO-YO WARS— Red Mango and Pinkberry aren't the only fro-yo places that continue to expand in NYC. AMNY reports that Tasti D'Lite will add 35 franchises over the next 10 years. [AMNY]

LONG ISLAND CITY— NewYorkology shares the news that there will be free Water Taxis going to Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City on Friday and Saturday nights all summer long. Rides usually cost $5 each way. [NewYorkology]

FLATIRON— Following a blow out preview last night—attended by Wylie Dufresne, Scott Conant, Franklin Becker, Johnny Iuzzini, and Cesare Casella—George Mendes opened his new restaurant Aldea tonight, a day earlier than he predicted last we spoke with him. They opened at 5:30, so get to it. [EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE— Grub Street reports that Carroll Gardens pizza spot Lucali is on vacay for a week, while Solex in the East Village is closing down for a revamp. They will reopen with a new menu on Memorial Day. [GS]
