DUMBO— The Brooklyn Paper's Gersh Kuntzman gets a little drunk on burgers at Friday's Burger Bash and points out a fact we didn't notice before: "As a Brooklynite, I'm absolutely appalled that 67 Burger has been shunted out basically to the very corner of the Tobacco Warehouse, they haven't even given them a sign!" NB: they were in the Warehouse netherlands right alongside the Eater.com burger (though we did, in fact, have a sign). [BP]
