heavy new construction has popped up directly next to the development of the hotel at 200 Allen St. assumed it was expansion of the hotel’s footprint, but when we stopped by to take photos, the construction supervisor said a new pizza place is going in. it was an informal conversation but he mentioned the name will be “La Sala”. and from the looks of the serious construction going on, gutting deep into the walls and at least one story below ground, it’s going to be a big place. with all the sucky over-development in the LES, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that some good pizza comes in.

guide to the summer blockbusters

guide to the summer blockbusters
we love Thighs Wide Shut for all the awesomeness they serve up daily. but it’s the movie reviews that we live for! always so dead on, and fantabulous to read. it’s like having a good friend with an impeccable eye for film, who sees every flick and then guides you to what’s worth seeing (or not seeing.) this week he gives us a great guide to this summer’s blockbusters with juicy reviews of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Cinderella Man, War of the Worlds, Batman Begins and the Fantastic Four. his Thighness is the Roger Ebert of blogland!


and check out Pajiba (a site that’s been advertising here) for some very interesting and in depth reviews of the latest films
