Let's start the day with two miracles in the EV.
1. Unless some celebu-chef is pulling an Eldridge and disguising itself as an old EV staple, Kim's has landed in the former Kurowycky spot, saving us from yet another noisy, bustling upscale eatery, as reported here first:
2. When tailor/cleaner Michael Alter announced he'd be retiring, in part due to rising rents, we assumed that his spot and the vacated Fontana spot would be combined in one big something bad. Mr. Alter has retired, but another tailor/cleaner has taken his place, a friendly Asian woman who promises to "keep the same low prices." Miracles do happen:
Now to other items:
Not only are some moms waxing their children's pubes, they're now putting their baby girls in high-heeled shoes. Anyone for a little foot-binding or clitoridectomy? Oh, but these shoes are "extremely funny." [Heelarious]

Keep waving bye-bye to the Bowery because here goes another chunk--and here comes another big shiny box. [Curbed]
Do some shopping at Sahadi's with BaHa. [SE]
