HBO’s love affair with the Lower East Side continues. For the second time this month, the hotly anticipated Martin Scorsese/Mick Jagger series, Vinyl, will occupy an enormous swath of Lower East Side territory. From Rivington to Rutgers Street, in fact. All day today.

The usual no parking signs envelop the street furniture east of Hell Square and south to Seward Park. Keep an eye out for exterior changes to the current bar scene in order to jive with the Seventies setting of Vinyl.

What we do know for sure, however, is that Mission Chinese Food on East Broadway is a storefront participant. It’ll be closed for business today, and feature prominently in the scene.

Vinyl is a drama series that follows fictitious record label honcho Richie Finestra in his quest to save the business at the dawn of punk and disco. Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and showrunner/writer Terrence Winter are executive producers on the project. It stars Bobby Cannavale in the lead role, Olivia Wilde, and Ray Romano. HBO ordered ten episodes for the first season.

CLOSED 10/27 BECAUSE ? Our apologizes and hope to see you soon!
