Mellow Pages explains why they fibbed about turning down a $50,000 loan from Exxon: “We did it for the survival of the library. But we’re OK with the reality of the situation, that people will hate us now.” [Brokelyn]

After just a couple of weeks on Houston Street, the Katz’s Deli pop-up has its first celebrity buyer. According to its Facebook page, longtime Katz’s cat Jerry Stiller bought the Young and Sick piece that was going for $5,000.

1963 was a big year for pizza on the Lower East Side. That’s when a 16-year-old Salvatore Bartolomeo first flipped a disc of dough at Rosario’s Pizza, which quietly celebrated its 50th anniversary yesterday.
The neighborhood has changed since then, as has the pizza joint’s Houston Street location (it’s now at 173 Orchard). So is Bartolomeo nervous about the recent and impending closures of Max Fish (being replaced by Sweet Chick), El Sombrero (being replaced by Artichoke Pizza), Motor City, and all the rest? Or does he plan to go as long as Katz’s, which is celebrating its 125th?
