Mildly Funny Midtown Pics, Midtown Links and the end of the week wrap up…

I thought the Tuck Shop had fallen prey to some teenage prank when I spotted their sign walking home from work the other day:

But they must have done it on purpose- because it was still there a few days later.  I don’t know if this is some sort of an Aussie joke, or they just did it for the attention… but apparently worked- because here I am posting about it  (they do make delicious pies… if you haven’t had them, you should check it out.  Damnit!  I just plugged them… stupid Aussies and their clever marketing ploys.)

I also saw this on 45th street btw. 5+6th the other day:

I thought it was pointing out a restaurant with rats… but I think it’s just some union thing, because the rat was pointing at a construction site.  Wouldn’t it be awesome if the NYC Health Department just put gigantic blow up rats in front of restaurants with failed inspections (rather then those stupid yellow notices).  Speaking of those notices… we read on Eater last night that the eagerly anticipated Sushi of Gary 46 (on 46th btw. 8th & 9th) must have failed it’s final inspection and has delayed it’s opening by a day.  Don’t everyone rush over there all at once tonight…

More links to Midtown stuff you definitely want to know about… including 117 stories about the ladies of the Hawaiian Tropic Zone, all after the jump:

Midtown Links:

Next week… we’ll have news about an old Cuban spot, getting a new 56th street location- plus a great Turkish all you can eat buffet in the East 50s.  You know how much I love all you can eat buffets… 

Have a good weekend!
