… and excellent everything else. On Friday night we brought our dear friends Meghan and Brett — visiting from San Francisco — there and had a fabulous meal, from Malaysian-style tripe to buttermilk pappardelle. I say it all the time but— I.love.that.restaurant. (The range! the creativity! the execution! So very very special.)

I feel like they always come in drunk..They come from there and say ‘let’s stop by to see the puppies.
-

That’s Fernanda Moritz, the manager of Le Petite Puppy on Christopher St. in the Village, which just issued a “no drunks” ban on buying, and even holding, puppies they sell. Moritz said people will sometimes pop-in after a couple Bloody Marys at brunch and buy an expensive puppy, only to return the pet the next day after they’ve sobered up. Le Petite Puppy isn’t the only store in the area that complains of the new trend, either; many say the drunk purchasing is just an “occupational hazard” of having a shop near so many bars.

On Saturday, at the age of 69, Clarence Clemons, aka the Big Man, passed away in Palm Beach, Florida.   Known best for his role as the unbelievably talented saxophonist in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, Clemons’ passing has brought sadness to so many.

L: Clarence & Bruce play together in the 2000’s on The Rising tour; R: Clarence & Bruce on the cover of “Born to Run”

 

If I had to pick a soundtrack to capture my upbringing on the Jersey Shore it would undoubtedly be a mix of Bruce Springsteen songs.  Every summer walking from my house up to the beach, “Born in the USA” could be heard blaring from each beach-house party.  Once I got my license, I would drive the ten miles north to Asbury Park and be engulfed in the land of the Boss.  I’d pass by the Stone Pony, considered one of the greatest rock venues of all time, where Bruce got his start and still visits today to play a show here and there.  I’d catch a glimpse of the Wonder Bar, where it is said that Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemons first met.  I now live and work in the Village and am proud to say that my new home, too, played a vital role in shaping Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
