And they’re bringing you Fools Gold
, a low-slung new beer hall on Houston from the guys behind
Alewife and the Jeffrey, opening tonight.
You’d be forgiven for missing this place, what with its entrance being unmarked/covered in graffiti right

showing early-morning European soccer matches.
Don’t forget to thank your local authorities.
