Seen & Heard: Canis Minor Is Officially Closing

Canis Minor sign••• A shame: Pet-supply store Canis Minor is closing May 28. The sign posted in the window is above.

••• From a reader: “I wanted to share with you that my dear friend (and fellow Tribeca resident) Malcolm Lloyd passed away recently on April 24, 2014. He was well known and loved in the Tribeca community. From being a hands-on dad to two young boys and adoring husband to wife Solange, to supplying his premium vodka brand Double Cross Vodka to local restaurants like Marc Forgione, American Cut and Tiny’s; Malcolm was a professional fixture and a bright light in our neighborhood. He was also an avid crossfitter and became a big part of the community at 212 Crossfit. Just last week, our gym dedicated a workout to him, with other gyms participating in Slovakia and Miami. I truly believe that everyone who met Malcolm, loved him. Along with colleagues and friends, we have set up a memorial fund to support Malcolm’s family.”

••• This addition to the agenda for Wednesday’s Community Board 1 Tribeca Committee should be of note to anyone concerned about the 80,000 gallons of fuel oil stored at 60 Hudson: “60 Hudson Street – Update by Shaun Mooney, Director of Infrastructure, Colliers International.” These sorts of appearances don’t tend to happen unless something is up. Also added to that meeting’s agenda: sidewalk-café licenses for Sushi of Gari and Añejo. The meeting is at 6 p.m. at 49-51 Chambers; bring ID.

••• The Tribeca Meet & Greet, organized by the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, will be Tuesday, May 20, at Gurhan Atelier (6:30 to 9 p.m.). Everyone is welcome.

••• Press release: “Announcing the official opening of Season 3 on May 15, 2014, Mmuseumm returns with 20 new exhibitions exploring themes of daily human existence, politics, absurdity, natural history, transcendence and ritual. Featured collaborators include hosts of the popular radio show Radiolab, artist Maira Kalman, Chief Asia Photographer for the Associated Press David Guttenfelder, President of The Library Foundation of Los Angeles Ken Brecher, filmmaker Casey Neistat, and artists Freeman and Lowe.” Didn’t it used to be called Museum? I guess that was too search-engine unfriendly.

••• Thanks to everyone who came to the Tribeca Citizen/Joy Gryson event the other night! It was great to see old friends and make new ones. And the mezcal-based punch that Tribeca-based mixologist Steve Olson created was a delight.

••• City Winery‘s Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival will be every Tuesday from June 3 to August 26. The lineup is here.

••• Maxwell’s is mixing it up.

  1. Will miss Canis Minor….I don’t think I’ll be able to walk down that street anymore without my dog begging to go in whatever takes its place.
