LOWER EAST SIDE— It's been a long time coming, but Casa Mezcal, the three story Mexican restaurant, bar, art house, cinema, and community center, promised back in December '08, is finally beginning to open. The restaurant section is still on the way, but the bars—and there are three—hosted locals brave enough to cross the plywood shed last night. For a video tour of the space, there's a good interview with the owner here. [BB]
