Kosher Village sends out a mea culpa today, apologizing for spamming the thousands of people who entered its naming contest: “Our expertise is with cumin, not desktop apps. We hope you enjoy our falafel more than the ‘spam,’ which yes, we realize is not Kosher.” And if that apology isn’t enough, the place is giving away free falafels this Friday from 2 p.m. till 4 p.m., right after it awards $3,000 to NYU student Abi Libson for being the first of 21 people to suggest its name (the others receive a gift certificate). Will the “falafel free-for-all” be picketed by spurned entrants? We shall see.
