TIMES SQUARE—Look! A picture of an AC/DC Wal-Mart pop-up! It's not actually the one from Times Square, but you get the idea. The photo arrived with information about the roving AC/DC truck, which will be in Times Square tomorrow and Sunday and spend Saturday canvassing the city. In the truck, you can listen to AC/DC's new album, play their special version of Rock Band, and, best of all,"meet other AC/DC 'super fans' to test their fan knowledge." If you happen to spot it, do send us a picture, SVP. [Racked Inbox]
GREENPOINT— A short but lovely Brooklyn fairytale: One day, Miss Heather spotted some men renovating a garage in her neighborhood and asked them what it would become. "Why, it's a beer spa," one replied. "Greenpoint has enough bars. We're selling boutique beer. You'll be able to knock back a beer and get a nice massage." And they all lived very happily ever after.
