Spring Update: Operation Easter Egg Hunt Deemed A Resounding Success!

Egg Hunt with a View

Captain Robin – LIC’s Own Pied Piper

The first thing that came to mind when I initially heard about this past Saturday’s egg hunt was The Who in Cincinnati, 1979.  The second thought I had was “Why aren’t these kids wearing helmets?”  given the fact that practically every child activity requires one these days.  Thus I am very happy to report that other than minor bumps and bruises no children were hurt in this mission, all 4,273 eggs were safely recovered, and Dr. Dan on Vernon Boulevard is fully booked thru May.  Now some might consider an Easter egg hunt the penultimate “participation trophy” contest, and some may complain that it is wasteful and the chickens laying plastic eggs are not free-range, but these cynics mostly reside in Brooklyn so who really cares what they think.  All other LIC news is so greatly trumped by the successful hunt that I don’t feel the need to comment, the titles speak for themselves.

Remember Where You Heard It First

There are a lot of major news organizations playing catch-up on the Corner Bistro LIC opening, and for that matter jumping on the Long Island City bandwagon in general.  As always they are a day, week, month, year, decade, or occasional century late.  I mean wouldn’t you just want to kill yourself if you had awakened this morning, read the Wall Street Journal, and found out that the Corner Bistro had opened up two friggin’ weeks ago?  Of course you would …well maybe not if you gave up meat for Lent, then actually you might be very happy to have been in an LIC-free cocoon, but I am a devil-worshipping carnivore who…  Ok, I’m getting distracted from all the other important LIC news that has accumulated since my week in St. Bart.  In addition to late-comers to the CB story I give you another addition to Vernon Boulevard, Astoria vs. LIC, and da G-train.  Plus a pic of our new High School going up on the water which I hear is going to be named after Jeremy Lin, remember where you heard it first!
