Reading up on “Alexander’s” and specifically a NJ focus: “Alexander's' Paramus, New Jersey store, located at the crossing of New Jersey Routes 4 and 17 near Westfield Garden State Plaza, was famous for a mural painted for the store by Polish artist Stefan Knapp. George Farkas commissioned Knapp to paint the mural for the store, who did so after seeing Knapp's work at Heathrow Airport in London. At the same time, however, Spanish artist Salvador Dalí had been commissioned to do a mural for the store as well and after he learned that Knapp was also hired to paint a mural, he demanded that he design the piece and Knapp paint it. Knapp refused, and a compromise was reached where Dalí received his commission payment for not doing any work and Knapp would continue to compose the piece and two additional murals.”

Salvador Dali was upset he didn’t get the chance to paint a mural for Alexander’s in Paramus?!?!?!

@DJ Matt: Just got a text from Bingo the chimp, from the parking lot at Don Ho's in Honolulu, where Happy Hour is about to start. . Waikiki Beach was 86 degrees, a little overcast with a nice breeze today. Bingo had some great runs on the boogie board and the girl-watching was primo. They've been listening to the show on the stream while they're waiting for bar to open at 5 local time, and they sound real pleased with what you're doing.
Of course, I'm interpreting a little here, because Bingo communicates mostly with strings of emoticons...
