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.
