Sorry, but Haribo gummies are reportedly made with slave labor

1 Comment

The days when we were concerned—or at least, I was, being an earnest teenager in a Clash T-shirt—about Starbucks putting local coffee shops out of business seem so quaint and far away now, curled up in a cozy sweater knit in a Vietnamese sweatshop reading articles on an iPhone about how the carnauba wax and animal…

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard had a cameo in the latest 'Game of Thrones' episode

Noah Syndergaard Game of Thrones

Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season seven, episode four, "Spoils of War."

Sunday night's episode of "Game of Thrones" gave fans a lot of what they wanted. "Spoils of War" featured a few reunions and battles that longtime viewers had been waiting for for years, including our first look at the damage a dragon can do to a Lannister army.

With all the action, it was easy to miss a cameo by Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who appeared for a brief moment as a spear-wielding Lannister soldier attempting to fight off the onslaught of the Dothraki horde. While only onscreen for a second, Syndergaard, whose fastball can break 100 mph, did get some use out of his powerful arm, throwing his spear so hard that it knocked a Dothraki off its mount.

Syndergaard is a known fan of "Game of Thrones" and has even used the show's intro as his walk-up music .After the show, he posted a few tweets expressing his excitement with the appearance.

Fans on Twitter seemed to enjoy the cameo as well.

Syndergaard has been out with an injury since late April, but the Mets are hoping that their young star will be back on the mound before the end of the season. His character, despite his accuracy with the spear, was likely burned alive by dragon fire.

Mayahuel, One of the City’s Best Tequila Bars, Will Close After Eight Years

1 Comment

They couldn’t get a new lease

Pour one out for Mayahuel, the tequila and mezcal-centric cocktail bar from restaurateur Ravi DeRossi that’s been in the East Village (304 East 6th Street) since 2009 that’s closing August 8.

DeRossi said that the lease has ended and the landlord did not want to renew. “There will never be a greater honor than having been able to welcome you into our home, share our passion for agave with you, and create and share so many incredible memories,” a note from the bar’s team says.

Mayahuel was one of several DeRossi businesses in the East Village that celebrate cocktail culture. It’s also a bar that helped make concentration on a single liquor a trendy thing across the city. When it first opened, agave liquors were often relegated largely to margaritas, and Mayahuel and Philip Ward of Death & Co. convinced people that it shouldn’t be. In a review in 2009, the Times said it “may be the world’s first tequila bar with a hypothesis — not a theme, like Spring Break Forever or That Night in Cabo, but an actual theory to be argued and defended.”

Here’s the full copy of the note.

To our Family, Friends & Fellow Agave Lovers,

It is with great sadness that we inform you Mayahuel will be closing her doors for good on August 8th, 2017.

Our lease has come to an end, and renewing was not an option.

There will never be a greater honor than having been able to welcome you into our home, share our passion for agave with you, and create and share so many incredible memories.

Between now and August 8th, we hope to welcome you into our home a few more times to celebrate all that is Mayahuel.

With the utmost appreciation and love,

The Mayahuel Family
