Community Board 3 released the May agenda for the SLA subcommittee. It’s stocked this month with thirty-one items. Sounds like another Super Bowl of a meeting.

  • Soho House is back on the agenda, fresh off two months of community outreach via open houses at 139 Ludlow Street.
  • La Señorita, which replaced the crepe joint at 115 Eldridge, is seeking wine and beer.
  • The Clerkenwell recently switched names to Kupersmith; both seem on the outs with the appearance of a new liquor license.
  • The Living Room returns to the fray this month having twice withdrawn. They are meeting some resistance from the Second Street block association.
