KOSHER, Dill, Bread & Butter, Gherkins, Cornichons, and the age old dilemma: sour or semi-sour? All of these choices can be yours when… Uh, oh, ahh, okay let’s start over. CityPickle is coming to Long Island City and will be NYC’s first dedicated pickleball club when it opens late Spring/Summer of this year according to The New York Post.
The owners of CityPickle signed a lease at The Woodworks building located at 9-03 44th Rd. just off Vernon Boulevard, where they will be able to install four indoor courts in the newly developed red-brick warehouse and be one of several tenants. Originally this building was supposed to contain a charter school as well, but I guess not. Instead we get pickleball!
//TODAY is Ash Wednesday, aka the beginning of Lent, and also when local history is made. Speaking of dilemmas, in sitting around the newsroom waiting for the next journalistic ambulance to chase, we were kicking around the dilemma that observant Catholics who choose to give up alcohol for Lent, encounter navigating St. Patrick’s Day. Which every year happens to fall right in the middle of this solemn religious observance. After eight hours of heated debate broken up by a break for cheese-steaks and a brief nap, we decided to consult the dark web in search of salvation, and the answer.
Lo and behold, there is a shrine, on the dark web, where you can get the answer to everything! It is called Wikipedia, and according to St. Wiki:
“historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.”
Rejoice! And don’t let anyone tell you the party ends for good on Fat Tuesday.
