A food truck that parked on 60th and Columbus Avenue yesterday advertised “Gangnam Style” Korean food. If you don’t know what Gangnam Style is, it’s the name of a Korean song with a hilarious video watched more than 800 million times on YouTube. As for Gangnam Style food, who knows? They’re serving pork, beef and chicken BBQ. (Gothamist)

An educational daycare programĀ  at the Bloomingdale Family Center on 107th Street, which had to close because of budget cuts, will reopen using a loan from the city. Like other Upper West Side institutions that serve low-income residents, it was de-funded because the city thought it wasn’t in a “high-need” area. (Columbia Spectator)

Cesare Casella of Salumeria Rosi on 73rd explains to the New Yorker how he makes sausage: “We sat down with him to see how sausage is made at his restaurant, and find out why so many people are so obsessed with his luscious links.” (New Yorker)

      Re: “Cesare Casella of Salumeria Rosi on 73rd explains to the New Yorker how he makes sausage:….”

      Which recalls the adage, attributed to Mark Twain:
      “Those that respect the law and love sausage should watch neither being made.”

      Especially fitting as we watch the spectacle of the lemmings in Congress heading toward the Fiscal Cliff.
