Oh, Sandy!

.

.

(Update: as of Tuesday, November 6, Dirt Candy has re-opened! Seriously. We’re open. You can eat here! People have been confused, so be confused no longer!)

.

OMG – SuperKillerPsychoStorm Sandy has hit New York! The second Hurricane Sandy stopped being overly dramatic in a desperate bid for attention, I strapped on my shoes and walked down to Dirt Candy to check out the damage. Fortunately there wasn’t any. No leaks, no explosions, no radioactive mutants squatting in the rubble and killing people for gasoline. Unfortunately, there is also no power and no one is sure when it’s coming back online. Con Edison says that it will be four days, but these are the same people who once told me that my power bill jumped by $2200 in one month because they mis-read my meter, so I’m not sure they’re the best judge of things.

.

.

Since there’s no way to know what’s going on, Dirt Candy is going to be closed for the rest of the week. I’ll still be heading to Austin to do the first vegetarian event ever at the Alamo Drafthouse (full, sense-shattering details here) and we’ll be open again on Tuesday, November 6 unless something bad happens in the interim. But keep your eyes on Facebook, or Twitter, or here, and I’ll let you guys know the second those plans change.

.

.

Of course, tomorrow I also have to head to my storage space on Avenue D, which got something like 4 – 6 feet of water. And my storage unit is in the basement. So it’s not looking good.

.

How all my customers look now that we are in the post-apocalyptic future!
