••• Centrico is closed for two weeks for renovations. But isn’t this prime margarita weather?
••• According to the flyers posted at Warren and W. Broadway, something called Diga Vision is shooting there today—but that’s a production company. And the phone numbers listed don’t work. That’s weak: Those flyers are there to make up in some small way for the inconvenience of having a film crew, so play by the rules, people.
••• Those of you who remember Yaffa’s Café (where MaryAnn’s
used to be is now) probably also remember its proprietor, Yafa Faro. She is now making sesame-based treats called Yaffa’s Joy from her farm in Bucks County. “They are vegan and gluten-free, and they are very healthy and tasty,” she emailed when I contacted her about them. They’re also addictive: I told myself I’d eat one of the nine squares, then changed it to three, then I ate them all. You can buy them locally at Bell Bates (where they’re on the shelves across from the western cash register and at Whole Foods Tribeca, where they’re near the nuts. In both places, looking for the label won’t help, since it’s on the bottom of the clamshell packaging. I don’t know, either.
