The Pink Tea Cup has been a nomad since its closure in 2010--and now it's moving to 6th Avenue near 14th Street, with a comical new look:

Being able to scan with a smartphone is one of its better uses. You don't have to worry about the physical ticket falling out of your pocket, getting stuck to something you throw away, etc. It saves paper and limits waste. Plus, you don't have to stand on line and wait to print tickets.
