Get your morning scoop on a Lobster's last stand, bamboo baseball uniforms, a "pimp" Google car, and the story behind the BBQ in today's local blog round-up.
- I guess this shouldn't really be a surprise. City Lobster & Steak, the midtown restaurant that sold semi-expensive lunches to business persons, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week. That 8oz Lobster tail, while delicious, is just out of the corporate accounts' budgets these days. [Crains]
- Brooklyn Cyclone players wore recycled bamboo uniforms over the weekend, and lead-off hitter Justin Garber compared them to his pajamas, admitting he's "never played baseball in my pajamas." [Brooklyn Paper]
- A Google-loving employee, fan, or name-squatter parked their Gmail-plated Mercedes in Fort Greene the other day, leading a design blog to deem it "The pimpest car on the Internet today." [The World's Best Ever]
- Lost City takes a look at an abandoned Bar-B-Cue joint at 228 W. Houston Street, and in the process reintroduces the now deceased eccentric former owner, a man who used to drive around blasting disco from his Volkswagen Thing. [Lost City]
