There's a new bar on the watch list. The corner of Lorimer and Bedford, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, is set to be home of "The Five Leaves", a bar that will be opened by one of Heath Ledger's good friends. In fact, Ledger was a "key backer of the project and was going to be a full partner." (From "Heath Ledger's Final Act."):

His untimely death put the project in jeopardy, but his father became executor of the estate, and because he knew how much the project meant to Heath, he released the funds to finish construction. The name Five Leaves is a working name, and comes from Swan cigarette papers that tell you when there are just five left in a package. [DBTH]

So, was Heath a roller? This may be just the thing that gets us to Brooklyn this fall....
