The team over at Gothamist got to wondering today: Wasn't Counter supposed to be closed by now? It was! And yet there it sits, humming along. What gives? Turns out Alex Stupak who plans to turn the location into an East Village Empelln outpost is waiting for the SLA to hook him up with a liquor license. Current projections for Counter's lifespan: four to six weeks. [Gothamist]
