Welcome to Saturday Night Five, where we shine a light on the best quips, barbs, burns, and nuggets of truth from Eater NY commenters. Here's this week's cream of the crop:
5) Cara comments on the "revival" of the Copacabana that's opening soon in Times Square:
Of course, the question begs to be asked...Will Lola the showgirl do an encore? Music and Passion are always in fashion!4) Floretbroccoli reacts to Sandra Lee beind named one of New York's 50 most powerful women:
I'm not a fan of the semi-homemade. But it is rumored that Lee (who has a gay brother) strongly encouraged Governor Andrew Cuomo to work for marriage equality in New York State.
If this is true, that kind of does confirm something about her power, and anyone who appreciates equality might consider giving her props for that and maybe think about semi-forgiving her for the "Kwaanza Cake."
3) Bloomberg critic Ryan Sutton chimes in on our post about the anonymous Michelin reviewer's best zingers:
Fact: if the Michelin Guide wrote their famous Red Guides with as much zest as they do their tweets, they'd sell a WHOLE LOT more books.2) An anonymous commenter on Daniel Humm comparing his new Nomad project to The Rolling Stones:
Let's hope that they can get some satisfaction from this project. The front door was going to be red, but they want it painted black.1) The owner of Angelica Kitchen (under the name Queen Bee) remembers Larry Bogdanow:
Larry designed my restaurant, Angelica Kitchen, with his delightful partner Warren Ashworth back in the good ol' days. We became great friends then and remained deeply connected throughout; now we have to say good-bye to one of the most genuine, original, loving and fun humans I have known. Always thinking, always active, always loving - Larry is/was a deeply willing and co-operative player in this life we all share.· All Previous Editions of Saturday Night Five [~ENY
