Yesterday, the Times confirmed that Bleecker Bob's is leaving the Village--and that Starbucks is moving in. Now Ken Mac passes along this interesting comment from his news-breaking post:
"not sure who this reporter spoke to since he doesn't mention anyone by name, but Bleecker Bob's is currently looking at spaces in the east village. we are definitely NOT planning to close. please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any leads on storefront. thanks and stay tuned."
Maybe they can move into the soon-shuttered Holiday Cocktail Lounge.
