Drunkards Somehow Just Not Feeling Steak and Cheese

It's not breaking news, but at some point in the last few weeks, the Cheesesteak Factory on East Houston Street closed after a little over a year. Let this and the prompt shuttering of nearby De Santo pizzeria be a lesson: Its sometimes not enough to simply open up a place serving dubious drunk-folk food in an area full of drunk folks. And though it certainly doesnt bode well for our friedWhite Castles plan, perhaps the booze-soaked streets of the LES can accept the truth and move forward. Not likely, but a blog can dream, can't it?
