Mon evening update: Spindini, Lansky gets street named after him

It’s official:  Judd is gone from Spindini.  This Daily News article has the details.  It certainly is a pro-Judd piece, but why should I be surprised, seeing Fredric Koeppel’s name in the byline.

Bernard J. Lansky, owner of Lansky Bros. and “Clothier to the King,” has had a street named after him.  The block of Beale between Main and Second has been named “Bernard J. Lansky Street” in his honor.  That’s appropriate, I suppose, since that block contains a statue of his customer Elvis Presley.  That’s also the block where you can usually find 2 or 3 panhandlers at any time, trying to charge tourists to park in metered spaces and run various other scams on them.  Nonetheless, congratulations to Mr. Lansky on a well-earned accomplishment.

I had people e-mail and ask where I got my info that tonight’s Tiger game will be tape delayed on WKNO tonight at 9 rather than live… I got it here.

Time for some Pint Nite beer… kinda tempted to stay home and play PokerStars, but I kinda want to catch up with everyone who was out of town for Thanksgiving more.
