We weren’t sure how to feel about John Varvatos appropriating elements of CBGB for his Bowery store (loving tribute or egregious exploitation?), but this is just plain wrong: Tribeca’s new J.Crew is taunting its predecessor, Liquor Store Bar — which, after much struggle, had its booze license denied, in part because it was within 200 feet of a church — with construction signage that reads, "A MAN WALKS INTO A BAR AND ORDERS A MADRAS. HE WALKS OUT WITH A PAIR OF TROUSERS." Please, J.Crew, a little respect for the dead.
