Sunglass Hut makes it official on Bleecker
In the West Village, rubbers are out and Oakleys are in. Yes, that's right, our new favorite whipping boy Sunglass Hut has hung a shingle at 351 Bleecker Street. You may recall that the address used to belong to jimmy hat emporium Condomania. Flavored lubes, ball gags and prophylactics of all sizes can still be found in a few stores in the area...but for how long?
