  1. Re: Sinead. I can’t get the whole thing, but it sounds like “Look, I got something for (……)” Should be fun to make up funny substitutions.

  2. I would also suggest contacting CB1 regarding Bubby’s smokers.

  3. Believe it or not, that smoke from a ground floor restaurant is supposed to be going up a building length metal chimney to the roof and vented out to the sky. We had a similar situation with City Hall Restaurant on Duane Street when it opened years ago and smells wafted into lofts above. The owner had to build the same kind of chimney ventilatiion system from the restaurant up to the building’s top. This is standard operating procedure. If Reno would come to CB 1 this could be made official, but, frankly whomever gave Bubby’s that fine should have known that.
