    - awesome food: fresh grilled corn on the cob with lime juice, salt & chili powder
    - cheap food: $1.50 for an arepa or pupusa and coleslaw
    - free hilarity: watching new yorkers butcher the spanish language in vain attempts to order food.

    Anyone know what's going on with the building across the street from Baked where the storefront is being restored? Any clue what's going in there? (This is the space to the left of the "Rosebud" storefront with the permanent diarama of a children's sled, et al.) :?:
