A sh*tload of art left over by the Nazis (and I mean a sh*tload) was found in Munich, sending the art world into an uproar, Balthazaar will no longer have bathroom attendants, Goldman Sachs tells you how to be a man and, oh yeaaaaah, we got a new mayor! Check out what else is on my reading list...
Today I found myself reflecting on Hurricane Sandy, Lou Reed, and the old Penn Station. Then, I took a look at what is really in my friend's MDMA (Molly) pills, I got in touch with Facebook's oldest user and I shared my favorite Halloween costume idea. Let's get started...
As summer gets closer and closer, we're beginning to learn more details about the future of the Surf Lodge, and today we've gotten our biggest news yet.
Surf Lodge, Montauk's best or bane (depending on who you ask), is apparently up for sale. The owners are ditching the property, which accrued 687 violations last summer and is in need of a $140,000 septic system repair. Owners Steven Kamali, Jamie Mulholland, Jayma Cardoso and Robert McKinley denied the story to the New York Post, promising Surf Lodge would be open for the summer and demurring that the corporation was not "actively pursuing a buyer."
No doubt the company is scrambling to address the news, which was inadvertently leaked in the midst of a contentious lawsuit between the hotspot and the town. News of the sale came out during a closed-door conference with a town judge, who repeated in open court the owners' plans to close down parent company Edgemere Montauk and sell Surf Lodge. Although Colin Astarita, the corporation's attorney objected, the information stayed on the record. Astarita has since been replaced by East Hampton lawyer Thomas Horn. Reports indicate that Surf Lodge is trying to delay the trial, which Town attorneys hope will conclude before the summer season begins. Pre-trial motions have been set for April 16th. More»
I recently read an article that noted the surprising number of people fishing at Echo Park Lake in the morning. And then I called my therapist. Do you have any idea what kind of abhorrences lie hidden in that swamp which hosted an aggressive fatal fish herpes outbreak not too long ago? Somebody call a priest because we may soon find out now that it's in the process of being drained for a two-year cleanup. As Curbed pointed out, locals are already taking bets on how many dead bodies they find once it's emptied. More»

After all the confusion and debate as to the appropriate nomenclature for what is commonly referred to as the "eastside" of L.A., as in Silver Lake, Echo Park, Loz Feliz, and East Hollywood, Curbed has had enough and wants to settle on a new name that we can all use moving forward. More»
