    What a boring Open Thread this week – so many complaints about being asked whether or not you want a bag for your groceries? Plus, have you not heard about the proposal to charge 10 cents a dance, I mean 10 cents a bag.

    Where is Mike the ice cream guy? His truck isn’t in front of Pierrepont playground.

    Philo T. Worthfarns, aren’t you the inventor of VT?

    Does anyone know what is filming on Remsen St. today? the signs are up but no production name.

  • Hicksanthrope

    Funny. I walked by his truck last week and had the same thought.

    More troubling than the paper or plastic bag quandary, is the greeting manikin just inside the door of Key Food. Almost every time I in the store this damn thing startles me, as I mistakenly think I am about to crash into a live human being…
