Cheeburger Cheeburger To Take Over Miracle Grill Space

Ok, so either my bitching worked and/or we got shit totally wrong.

Cause is it turns out we are NOT getting another Chinese restaurant in the old Miracle Grill space on 7th ave and 3rd street. Nope, we're getting a Cheeburger Cheeburger!

Fuck.

Now I kinda wish we were getting a-n-o-t-h-e-r Chinese restaurant.

Endangered Species Watch?: Slope Smokers

Every time I walk past some lone and lonely smoker standing on their snowy stoop (look at that alliteration), I remind myself to post something. The sightings have gotten so few and far between that I was ready on the basis of this half-assed inFIPStigation to put them on my endangered species list. And that was before Gothamist sent me some data.

According to a new analysis, in 50 years smoking may be as outdated as floppy disks or whale harpooning. Though the research is based on declining rates in Britain, it says just one in five Americans is a smoker, down from one in four a decade ago. And as of 2009, there were just 1 million adult smokers in New York City. Though the number might be higher, as rumors of public shamings have driven many into hiding. Oh crap, did we just give Bloomberg an idea? 

It's gotten so bad for the smokers of Park Slope that I've grown sorry for them. Me...the one who wrote my first real research paper (6th grade, IS 44) on the dangers of cigarette smoking complete with an exhibit jar of my stepmother's water-soaked butts.

Did you see when George comment jumped me!? I can't believe he ignored me like that, I thought we were friends.

Stephen just comment jumped Angelina. He has been avoiding her since last week.

Christina: Don't you just hate it when someone you don't like comments on a post, but there are other people you want to comment back to?
