"Up in the Old Hotel" is my favorite NYC book. Sloppy Louie's was still in business until about the mid 1990's.

@bobdoesthings: If there's nobody around, you can crank it up and let it there for Keili's show.

Bobby James "Lets Go", as in lets go find a note that won't be off key by the Sax player,

@fred - can't do that. but I got my 'cans' as they say at a adequately loud volume.

Hey Rex! First time in months listening live. Your show is always my first stop in the archives each week.

What's an acceptable time to crack a beer on a Labor Day weekend? It's 10:30 AM here

@rw - you're good then.
Avatar 1:29pm Whooda:

Hey buddy what's the time? "Oh it's about four dead men past a slaughter."
  1:29pm rw:

Hey Rex! Doing yardwork and listening to your show. Perfect Saturday morning!
Avatar 1:31pm Tony in Durham NC:

Time to turn on the backyard speakers and hip my neighbors to the news...Fool's Paradise news, that is.

My New York City. Where did it go ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm justinline:

Rex, your show makes my Saturday "Saturday." Love waking up to it here in Los Angeles, though during the show I feel like I'm back in NJ.

@rw: when you feel like it seems about right

Joseph Mitchell's daughter lives in our town. She is a lovely person.

@fred. Whew. Thanks, man. I'm going for it.

Alright, the Human Tornado himself! That's quite an endorsement Rex. Who can disagree with Dolemite? Not i...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm fred:

@rw: You're welcome. If sobriety is on the list of Fools' values, I haven't made it to that page
  1:54pm rw:

Ahhhh... Now it's really the perfect Saturday. Have a good one Fred, Rex, and all of y'all Faithful!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm fred:

@rw: enjoy, but please don't drink and drive. I made my choice, haven't touched a steering wheel in 20 years. And I swear I haven't had even a sip of alcohol in the past 20 seconds

At South and Fulton is the “old hotel” that the New Yorker’s Joseph Mitchell wrote about in the 1950s.

Sloppy Louie’s, which closed in 1998 when owner Joe Morino retired, occupied the ground floor of this building on the NE corner of South and Fulton. Like the majority of the older buildings in the market district, it is made of hand-molded Hudson River brick. It has an ornamental tin cornice and a late-covered mansard roof. As Mitchell wrote, it is one of the handsome, symmetrical old East River waterfront buildings that have been allowed to dilapidate, but it has made a comeback in recent years.

@hootervillain - well done.

Send it to the TT...audible !
  2:31pm rw:

Jeez there's a ton of dead crap in my front yard. Luckily it seems to be mostly plant based.
Thanks for the concern Fred. 20 years without driving is enviable. Unfortunately with my job and location that's not an option. I do try not to drive on weekends or to locations within 6-8 Miles or so if possible.
