Spike Lee’s Limited Edition Vodka Selling Briskly in Brooklyn Heights

He may have grown up in Cobble Hill, but Spike Lee’s latest “joint”, the ginger and red apple flavored Absolut Brooklyn, is popular in Brooklyn Heights.  Sources tell us that cases of the  limited edition liquor are selling quickly at Michael Towne Wines & Spirits at 73 Clark Street.

Mr. Lee will celebrate the launch of the product by debuting a new short film at next week’s Brooklyn Blogfest.

    Ugh…Absolut sell out. Anything for a buck. Sad.

    But hey, if P. Diddy can hawk vodka, why not Spike?

  • Homer Fink

    However, I gotta say the stuff is good. And I’m on record making fun of every “celebrity” vodka…ever.

    I often felt “Bamboozled” when I shopped at Michael Towne.

    Yo, Homer, when are you going to get your own vodka? You could find your inspiration right here…”a delightful concoction infused with hints of orange, cranberry, pineapple, and a soupcon of poplar and willow”.

  • Publius

    I’ll take a bowl of the soupcon.

    I just want to know who is buying that pink stuff in the perfume bottle over there at Michel Towne!

    …and I want to know where Mr. Lee got his eyeglass frames. Small reward* to anyone who can tell where he got them, or where similar frames are for sale..

    *Your choice of a year’s subscription to Consumer’s Reports or crystal meth.

    That whirring sound you hear is Stalin spinning in his grave!

    My dad’s an optician and thinks myoptics.com or sol moscot shoudl carry these. He thinks they are frames by Optical Shop of Aspen.

    My pretentious gold wire-rim frames just broke. No-one will mistake me for a lawyer anymore. /cries

    The deceased hailed from ‘Eyes On U too’ (a spin-off of an optical shop that presumably still exists on Avenue U), which had a briefish stay on the corner of Henry and Atlantic around the turn of the last millennium. They were an interesting combination of fancy frames with down-home Brooklyn service.

    Where do you folks go to service your eyewear now? Would you say there is a “better” location of all 3 eyewear shops on Montague?
