¡Ay, Papi! Someone broke into Los Pollitos II
The Brooklyn Paper
A thief broke into Los Pollitos II on Fifth Avenue on March 21, apparently hoping to steal some cash, but settled for some beer.
The owner of the eatery, which is at Douglass Street, told cops that he left the joint at 1 am. When he returned seven hours later, he saw that steel gate had been hoisted and that the doors had been forced open. But the thieves found nothing in the register, so they settled for the next best thing: an assortment of booze worth $88.

In his ever-constant quest to prove that he actually is Mexican (see image above for example), Artie-party/Tuti/Tutu/Tutes McGutes is leading an expedition to Sunset park, this FRIDAY, for tacos and margaritas. Will post more details, but would be awesome to see you guys. It's been forever.

Having seen it twice now, I can say it is definitely great.
Funny, sad, and thought provoking.
See it if you can.
I'm going to go see it tonight at 8:15pm in case anyone else is interested.

I was recently at my favorite coffee shop in NC and ran into none other than . . . Peter!! He is doing well; finishing some crazy 15th or some-odd year in is residency at UNC Chapel Hill. I asked if I could mention that I saw him. He said, "sure."
That's all for now.

Did it seem strange to anyone, not that Hollywood would use black actors for this, but that Hollywood could have conceived of a movie like this as a vehicle for black actors? Well it didn't.
In the down time that one has while unemployed, I was flipping channels and came across this British movie on TV.
Obviously it's not surprising that Hollywood would remake a movie, but isn't it a bit hackish that they would remake a movie that is already in spoken english, that was only made 3 years ago, and remake it almost word-for-word and gag-for-gag? I mean, just watch those two trailers. EVEN THE MIDGET THEY USE IS THE SAME GUY!
All that said, I have a feeling that the new movie might be a bit funnier than the British one. The British one had problems. Maybe this is a case where Hollywood actually figured out the right kind of movie to remake....though it still doesn't look like a great movie.
Apparently they were one and all directed by Errol Morris, the award winning beast of a documentarian who made The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War, and Mr. Death.
Raju, if you didn't already know this, consider it my repayment for that time I told you that Franklin W. Dixon wasn't a real dude.
