The Blue & Cream “Tribute” to Mars Bar

Posted on: April 13th, 2012 at 10:15 am by

One didn’t need to attend that travesty of tributes on the Bowery to know that Blue & Cream’s Mars Bar exhibit would be an occasion to suck back cocktails. Suck it did. A salt-in-the-wound installation meant to sell upscale clothes to upscale people. East Village scribe and musician Slum Goddess attended the show and reported that it was “packed to the brim with hipsters and models and people shopping for clothes.”

Now, while everyone there was nice to me and I got complimented on the clothes I was wearing..I have never felt more out of place…

I knew it would be depressing to see photos of my favorite bar hung up at a place that sells $200 t-shirts..I really did not expect it to be so…utterly awful.

Blue and Cream are free to open up a fancy clothing store on the Bowery of course..however Mars Bar should not be used to get them business..the quaint little divey bar down the block that they saw fit to use to their advantage when it closed.

Check out the full review here.

Conversion of the landmark Jarmulowsky Bank Building to shi-shi hotel hit a major roadblock this week. As we first reported, scaffolding came loose from 54 Canal Street early Monday morning.
