First Cabrito’s goat, then Stand’s cow, and now the bust of Venezuelan physicist José Gregorio Hernández that serves as a sort of mascot at Park Slope’s Barbès has gone missing. A waitress thinks she knows who the culprit is (a “hipster-type, early 20s kind of guy”), but the problem is, “he looks exactly like all of our patrons.” [City Room/NYT]
