Stop the presses and hold the phone: Union Square's incoming Best Buy, the one taking over the former home of Circuit City, is going to stay open all night long. This means you could be at the Coffee Shop at 4:30 am on a Friday night that's really a Saturday morning, get suddenly struck by the need to price dishwashers, and have someone explaining to you the difference between a Maytag and a KitchenAid before the taste of mojito has even left your lips. We're not saying that anyone is ever actually going do to such a thing—but isn't it nice to know that somebody could?
