Yesterday, Kate's Joint was seized by marshals (that Kickstarter didn't work), as EV Grieve reported, and now the blog is saying a "for rent" sign has been hung outside the Alphabet City standby. As if that weren't bad enough, Grieve got a tip that Starbucks might move in. Truly the end of an era for that corner of the hood we'll be off mourning over veggie bacon and spicy bloody marys if you need us. [EV Grieve, Earlier]
