Seen & Heard: Pret a Manger Spruces Up a Landmark

Pretstarks••• Not only is the Pret a Manger at Broadway and Thomas looking increasingly likely to open this spring, but check out the façade—they got rid of the hideous atrium on Thomas! Really sharp. Now if the McDonald’s across the street would just stick a big paper bag over itself…. (Thanks for the photo, J.!)

••• From M.M. De Voe of Pen Parentis: “There’s something tragic about loud Violent Femmes as Muzak in a blizzard-empty Urban Outfitters. Opened today” (at 180 Broadway).

••• Tonight’s CB1 Landmarks meeting has been rescheduled for Thursday, February 20, at 6:30 p.m. (49-51 Chambers, room 501).

••• A gallery called Ascent is popping up at 13 Laight (on the sixth floor) with an event on Feb. 21. See image for details.
