Seen & Heard: Denny’s Closed by the Health Department

••• News from the Tribeca Greenmarket:

••• Schoolhouse Electric is having a “holiday fest” this Saturday; everything in the store is 15% off. I don’t know if the little three-ounce measuring cup at left in the photo below is currently available at the store, but I love mine because it’s the easiest way to make a cocktail, particularly one of equal parts, like a Negroni or Boulevardier. (It’s also only $5, so the 15% discount isn’t that meaningful.)

••• And Antiqueria Tribeca is winding down its Duane Street store: “Thank you all for your support through the years. Please note that we will be closing our 129 Duane Street location within the next 10 days. We still have a great selection of furniture, lighting and accessories available deeply discounted in time for holiday gifting or making your own home more beautiful. No reasonable offers will be refused.”

••• Denny’s has incurred the wrath of the Health Department, notes Josh. I’m no fan of that chain but I hope the franchisees can get the restaurant back on its feet soon.

••• The TV show “Billions” is taking over a big chunk of Tribeca for its shoot today.

••• Community Board 1 sent out a notice regarding a town hall about Pier 17: “The newly rebuilt Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport is slated to open in 2018. It includes a one-and-a-half-acre performance and public space on the roof accommodating up to 4,000 people designed for such events as concerts, fashion shows, movie screenings, and tennis matches. If you are concerned about the impact of this new entertainment venue or wish to learn more about what is planned, you are urged to attend.” It’s December 4 at 6 p.m. at the Southbridge Towers Community Room (90 Beekman).
