    Miss Lily's opens a juice shop, EastBridge will now be IMOK; Luc Carl opened the doors to Ludlow Manor on Friday; NY Nightlife interviewed Marc Benecke; the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is selling merch; Steve Lewis takes a personal approach to the Steakhouse credit card scam and so much more!

    1. EastBridge, co-owned by Sean Hughes and Matt Dino, apparently will now be known as IMOK (If Mother Only Knew), and has transformed from the original plan of the "every man's bar" to a more exclusive scene with a DJ present Fridays and Saturdays. Marcus Bifaro, the beverage director at Surf Lodge will be involved, but King & Grove, though it was rumored will, will not. [BoweryBoogie]
