Seen & Heard: Yorganic

••• An outpost of Yorganic is coming to 275 Greenwich, between Warren and Murray (a couple of storefronts south of Kaffe 1668). Here’s what its Facebook page (its website is under construction) says: “Yorganic is the first frozen yogurt made with organic milk, sugar, and yogurt. We procure only the finest organic ingredients, as locally as possible, to serve you the healthiest juices, smoothies and frozen yogurt with organic toppings. In addition to our amazing treats, Yorganic is proud to present Bliss Bowls! Steamed rice or noodles topped with fresh sauteed vegetables mixed with our own chef’s sauce.” There appear to also be soups, salads, sandwiches, waffles, and some other stuff. There’s also a FiDi location on Hanover Square and one on Third Ave between 49th and 50th Sts.

••• From Trinity Wall Street: “ABC Television stations across the country will broadcast a special service of Lessons and Carols to be filmed on December 4 at Trinity Church. All are welcome to join the parish of Trinity Wall Street and its renowned Trinity Choir, Family Choir, and Youth Chorus in Trinity’s historic sanctuary […]. In preparation, participants are asked to attend a brief and informal class on Sunday, November 21 at 12:45pm (directly after the 11:15am service) at Trinity Church to review the filming process and practice musical numbers. Kindly RSVP to Donna Presnell at 212-602-9672 or On Saturday, December 4, dress festively for the occasion and arrive at Trinity Church (Broadway at Wall Street) by 3:30 pm. The taping is scheduled to begin at 4pm and will take approximately one hour.”

••• Marc Forgione and Terroir‘s Marco Canora are among the final four contestants on the Food Network’s “The Next Iron Chef.” It airs Sunday nights. I’m unclear on what the winner gets, if anything besides adulation.

••• From J&R: “Meet Quincy Jones Tues., 11/16 for an Autograph Signing at 5:30 PM J&R Music World, 23 Park Row.” Related, have you heard his new song, a cover of “It’s My Party” with vocals by Amy Winehouse? I loved her record, but her singing on this one is unlistenable. What a tragedy.

••• Sneaker-and-related-apparel store Transit has opened on Broadway up near Lispenard. We went on Sunday, and they didn’t have the shoes Adam wanted, but the clerk said another Transit store a few blocks north (not the one in Noho) had them, which was nice—except he didn’t tell us that it’s called Michael K., not Transit.

••• Torly Kid‘s candy drive ends Nov. 15.

••• RHX on Chambers has closed! The exclamation point isn’t just because I’m excited about the closing; it’s there because I can’t believe it finally happened after months of crying wolf. Before you accuse me of dancing on anybody’s grave, spend a few years with an RHX—and its raggedy flyers spilling out everywhere—in your building (as there was in mine years ago).
