*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Nice

To attract customers, the sellers of waffles exploited the pre-eminent premodern marketing tool: the human voice. Among the various cris de Paris announcing goods and services on offer in the city, the oublieur made himself known by incessantly singing, "Chaudes oublees, renforcies," (Hot Oublies, stuffed oublies!) or else "La joie! la joie! voila des oublies!" (Joy! Joy! Here are oublies!). Hearing the street vendors cry, diners would invite him into the house in order to have oublies made fresh and hot, on the spot.

[Adam Kumler, on the history of the street waffle (oublie in French)]




[Opening the garage doors for the first time at Saint Paul's Bad Weather Brewing.]

After the event, New York City's livable streets advocacy elite partied the rest of the night away in the 9th Avenue protected bike lane while ensconced the anonymity of the Hummer's lavish interior:


"Do you know who I am!?!," an intoxicated Sadikh-Khan was heard to scream at one point after an angry cyclist pounded on the Hummer's hood.  "I built this bike lane!"
