More Shortcuts

- The Daily News is reporting that the infamous Shake Shack is coming to downtown Brooklyn. "The owner of the popular Madison Square Park stand - famous for its juicy burgers, frozen custards and unbearable lines - wants to bring a mobile "shake truck" to downtown Brooklyn, sources said yesterday. The Brooklyn truck could set up shop in the MetroTech plaza for lunch by the end of the summer. The truck is expected to hit other spots on weekends and at night." Maybe they can hang out by the potential Real World home, Belltowers. (please let it be there and not in my lovely Carroll Gardens!)

- The Brooklyn Paper is sadly saying that it might be a bit longer then we had hoped for the vendors to return to the ballfields. "... vendors are still awaiting city approval of that concession contract and high-end vending carts that are now required... The vendors’ paperwork appears misplaced in the Kafkaesque municipal bureaucracy." This might just force me to try making my own pupusas.

- It looks like the beloved LeNell's in Red Hook will be coming to a close if no lease agreement can be reached or a new location is not found. For more details on her impending eviction, jump over to Brownstoner.
