Out of the Blue

This won't mean anything to many of you, but as someone who grew up before Manhattan became Disneyworld North and when music was still distributed on vinyl, the news that Bleecker Bob's is closing is sad indeed. As someone with an affection for the place, however, I probably have less right to complain about this than most, since it's been so long since I was there that I wouldn't have been able to say for certain it was still open (for all my talk of vinyl, my version of old-fashioned listening is CDs). Still, it certainly marks the end of an era, even if the era actually ended a while ago. Maybe I need to construct my NYC bucket list of places to revisit before they (or I) die. I could start not too far from Bob's with my long-ago favorite pizzeria.

R.I.P.: World's oldest horse trots his final furlong. A good run.
