Nabe News

- I just got word that a second edition of Eton, the dumpling and shaved ice place on Sackett and Henry, called Eton II, will be moving into the empty space behind Zaytoons on Sackett and Smith that was briefly the hookah bar, Sheesha. Look for it by the end of the month. Yay! (thanks JD)

- As reported in the BK Paper, Whole Foods have abandoned their plans to build a store in Gowanus at 3rd and 3rd.

- In better news, the long empty Blockbuster storefront on Court Street has now been rented... to Union Street Market! (via Brownstoner). This place will be right across from me so I have a feeling I will be there often :)

- Sadly, there was a fire at Lucali's which will shutter it for about one week. A commenter on Brownstoner is also saying that a 2nd location is coming to 20th St and 6th Ave (via Slice & Brownstoner)

- A new taco joint has opened on Smith between DeGraw and Douglass, Oaxaca. I have heard mixed things but am going to try and check it out tonight.
- Bastille Day is upon us and activites abound on Smith Street. As with every year, Bar Tabac hosts an annual Bastille Day celebration that includes a serious patanque tournament at Smith and Dean. More activities on BK Based.
