Recap: Hanksy’s “Young Puns” at Krause Gallery

Posted on: November 9th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

The weeklong postponement didn’t seem to stifle the crowds at the Krause Gallery last night for Hanksy’s latest show, “Young Puns 2: Now with More Pun.” A rather hip set of gallery goers packed into the cubbyhole showroom at 149 Orchard Street to scope the street art. What they got was a well-picked greatest hits collection from the last year or so of output.

Hanksy plastered his humorous mashups onto large plywood boards (and car doors); familiar amalgams like Pie Hard, Vanny Devito, the Ice Ice Baby, and Ted Dancin. Meanwhile, the artist was also accepting Hurricane Sandy relief donations in exchange for Ferrel Cat stickers.

And remember, there are still a few days remaining (until November 11) in our Hanksy sticker scavenger hunt, so spend the weekend playing!

Looks Like Little Muenster is Closing Its Grilled Cheese Spot on Stanton Street

While one grilled cheese joint begins business on Allen Street, another is sunsetting. Little Muenster is seemingly in the twilight of its tenure at 100 Stanton Street. Melted fortune, if you will. That much is clear by Misrahi’s tombstone signage sitting above the entryway. We reached out to the Little Muenster team for more information, but […]

Don’t get your hopes up; that’s not a real antiques store at the northeast corner of Suffolk and Stanton Streets. We’re told that Abe’s Antiques is simply masquerading as a retail setting for the upcoming ABC television series Forever. Apparently the filming crews will return to number 154 later this week to capture more scenes. For […]

The Max Fish Cigarette Makes a Comeback, But Not in the Way You Think

The iconic Max Fish marquee cigarette is most certainly making a comeback, as previously reported. But probably not in the way you think. In the Orchard Street reboot, the illuminated ornament now resides on the wall beside the entrance. With some glittery accompaniment. Placing the twenty-five-year-old piece indoors makes sense, though. Max Fish owner Ulli Rimkus […]

The very first customer was a deli in Queens.  17 Cleveland Place was no-man’s land […]
