Lobby Bar – A Skeptical Synopsis of FBT News and Views

Slay Rosebud. Jonathan Spira gets in the driver’s seat of the 2016 Ford Mustang GT Fastback California Special. The car, dubbed “Little Red Wagon” is actually nothing more than a motorized Radio Flyer wagon, but thanks to its size and efficiency, gets an astounding 10,000 miles to the gallon. And that’s gallons of lemonade, supplied to the 10-year-old child pulling the wagon.

Battle for the ages. Jesse Sokolow prepares for his stay at the Holiday Inn Brooklyn Downtown by traveling back in time to the 17th century when the Boerum family, which the Boerum Hill neighborhood was named after, settled the area. Quickly recognizing that the hill that gave rise to the town’s name was starting to topple, he reinforces it on the exact spot where, some 350 years later, the hotel would be built, creating the battle of Boerum Hill.

Dual mode. It took years, but we’ve finally made it onto a Boeing 717 aircraft. As everybody knows, the middle numeral stands for the number of seat rows on the plane, meaning each seat in the 717 is actually a dual aisle seat, and passengers are served by flight attendants on both sides – one for drinks and one for snacks.

Screech. Join us at the theater for “Falsettos,” two one-act musicals that have been combined into one epic show. Be prepared, the whole show is performed in falsetto voice, so please bring earplugs and be sure to leave your dogs at home.

Hello, it’s me. Apple iPhones now have a built-in emergency option: press the power button five times to summon local law enforcement. This explains two things: why the volume wasn’t increasing when I was trying to boost Adele earlier, and why police vehicles surrounded me shortly thereafter. Luckily, they were Adele fans and let me go.
