Boozy NYC has seriously rankled the operators of “Woodburn and Ford,” the secret speakeasy in the Mr. Black space. Turns out it may not be called that, per a comment on the post: “The bar that was formerly mr.black does not yet have an official name, the space itself can only be rented or booked for private party purposes, hence the use of a password to keep un-invited guests firmly out! it will not be open to the public on a day to day basis at any time in the near future and neither is it an illegal space.” A mixologist from Woodford and Ford (er, Whatsitsname) chimes in:

The unamed establishment is an event space. Clearly stealing our menus is frowned upon and since I would have seen you taking copious notes or taking photos I can only assume you vandalized our vintage books.
