Seen & Heard: Home Decor Pop-Up Shop

Cullen Montgomery••• I missed this last weekend, but it’s reopening on Wednesday: Sisters Christina Callahan and Sarah Callahan Zusi—they’re related, not nuns—have a pop-up, named Cullen Montgomery pop-up after their grandmothers (who were “creative souls”), at 110 Duane. It’s cute! Expect all sorts of decorative items—from furniture to throw pillows to glassware to art, much of it vintage—from their personal collections. The flyer says “Coming soon:,” so maybe this is the start of a new business. The shop is open this week, Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

••• Matt Reiser, the well-regarded wine director of UpStairs on the Square in Boston, has joined Maslow 6 as a partner.

••• Pasanella & Son sent out an email about “neighborhood fiesta on October 19, 4-9 p.m. We’ll have old-fashioned carnival games, bands singing sea shanties, Butoh dancers, lots of great seafood, Sailors’ Valentine demonstrations and more on traffic-free cobblestone streets.” Also of note: “On October 24, kids of local merchants will form a bucket brigade to symbolically throw water back into the East River.” Take that, Sandy!

••• I got a look at the Tribeca Grand mid-renovation—it’s going to be done bit by bit—and I particularly liked the pool table in the lobby, which I understand anyone can play. It’s owner Leonard Stern’s personal pool table, you’ll want to know. (Also, have you noticed how, along the ground floor, the green parts of the façade have been painted black (or maybe dark gray)? Looks very nice. Personally, I think they should get rid of all the green.
