Lucky’s Famous Burgers Looking for Artist to “Houstanize” Interior

Posted on: December 20th, 2012 at 6:17 am by

The stuffed-cheeked smiley face is no longer cutting it. Lucky’s Famous Burgers at 147 East Houston is instead hopping on the bandwagon to tap into the vibrant Lower East Side street art scene. An in-store makeover. According to a sign placed in the glass facade, management is seeking an artist to inject some “Houston Street vibe” into the experience.

Lucky’s is looking to bring some Houston Street vibe into the atmosphere. Right now I want some input and some ideas. I want to make our logos and ambiance a little more artsy and “Houstanized.” While I cannot provide financial compensation I am providing the opportunity for your artwork to be displayed in one of the most well-known artist communities in the city. Please contact me with your information and a couple of samples of your work.

Zing’s Awesome Rice hasn’t been open of late. Looks like its fifteen-month reign in Hell Square just concluded. Indeed, all signs point to a permanent shutter – consecutive days of darkness, Yelp saying it’s closed, website disconnected, and no updates to social media. Most telling, however, is the disconnected phone line. Proprietor Zing Bai opened […]

After Departing Alphabet City, Ost Cafe Doubles Down on Grand Street
