This place just won't die! Mr. Pink's kitschy kitchen kingdom on West 16th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues has put up a sign naming a definite day for their final closure: January 28. We've reported on the end of this store twice before, first in April 2007 and again in June of '08, but it seems that they're finally ready to give up the ghost. Whatever green glass tumblers and ceramic carafes are left are now 70% off and cash only, so head to this little hamlet before they close for good.
