••• Plans are indeed underway for a protest about the battery Park City Authority’s stonewalling of Asphalt Green. Follow the progress on Facebook or Twitter, and/or email email@example.com if you want to volunteer.
••• Looks like work is starting on the prepared-food restaurant at 73 Warren (right).
••• RuthAnne found out some info about the wine bar coming to W. Broadway and White: “I met the woman who is opening the restaurant at the old Franklin Station space. It is the same owners as Aria. They told me this one is going to be called Terra. They were looking for signatures for a liquor license on the corner on Friday night.”
••• What if Fran Fine became a lawyer instead of “The Nanny”? A TV show called “Made in Jersey”—shooting Wednesday on Warren—answers that question. Also, “Law & Order: SVU” is shooting around Duane on Friday.
••• Cricketer’s Arms, the pub coming to the old Uncle Mike’s space, put up some signage on its door. At least I hope it’s called the Cricketer’s Arms, and that the owners didn’t want to pay the sign guy extra for the apostrophe. Also, the building has been painted in a black-and-white English-country style.
••• Look what just popped up on Twitter: The space at Chambers and Broadway that houses a Duane Reade is for lease. It’s a shame because that’s the only one around here that I’ll venture into.
••• From Downtown Alliance: “With the introduction of the innovative BigBelly Solar Stations, Lower Manhattan’s 57,000 residents, 310,000 workers and 10 million annual tourists now have a new way to dispose of their trash. Able to hold five times more than regular receptacles, BigBelly Solar Stations provide on-site trash compaction driven by solar power and remotely monitored via wireless technology.” They look like those FedEx dropboxes you see around.
••• Hudson Allergy has opened at 49 Murray. (Simply typing the word “allergy” makes me sneeze.) The website isn’t live yet.
