MIDTOWN EAST—Midtowners are about to get a taste of the Rockies...via some weird pop-up store! A Racked informant has forwarded us the promotional materials for the Let’s Talk Colorado brand store, which opened yesterday at 317 Madison Avenue and 42nd Street. The pop-up, open 'til the end of the month, offers "amazing vacation ideas, exclusive Colorado gallery images by Nikon photographers and more." And indeed, there is more. You can also: "Have your photo taken in front of your favorite Colorado backdrop." Can't you almost smell those fresh mountain breezes? [RackedWire]
BOWERY—The debut of Think Coffee Bowery is nigh. Writes owner Jason Scherr: "We'll be open tomorrow morning at our new location at the corner of Bleecker and Bowery." And downtown residents gain another much-needed wifi-enabled cafe. [RackedWire]
