Seen & Heard: 1WTC Exterior Hoist Is Finally Coming Down

South Street Seaport ice bar••• Luis at the FiDi Fan Page discovered that something he called the SeaGloo opens tonight on Fulton Street in the South Street Seaport. “It’s a pop-up igloo bar on Fulton Street that will have a small stage and live music. Looks like it will be glowing purple at night.” Turns out it’s called Front/Row. From the website: “Full enclosed heated cube. Live music. Full bar. Hot food.” Playing tonight: A Grateful Dead tribute band called Wigwam.

Megu burger••• Megu has rebranded its bar as M Lounge: “The concept of M Lounge is to make our bar/lounge space more neighbor friendly, affordable, tasty, and casual,” emailed a rep. It’s in a soft-opening phase, with a “more exciting menu” to come. For now, the highlight is evidently the half-pound Kobe beef burger. (I replied to ask if this was related to the M Lounge that Megu launched in 2011; will update this when I hear back.) Update: The venue is the same, renovated a bit. Besides the burger, the menu includes oysters, goat cheese sticks, spicy edamame, and something intriguing called choco bacon.

••• @WTCProgress tweeted this photo with a caption saying that “Ironworkers begin to dismantle One WTC’s exterior hoist starting from the roof level.” Maybe that’ll help with the wailing….
