I like food. I like hammers. I like bunnies.

Village Pet Store & Charcoal Grill

without comments


I stumbled into this today, and it was a complete sensory treat.

This is definitely something I’ve had dreams about before, a pet store filled with hot dogs, sausages, fishnuggets, bunnies, chicken nuggets, deli meats, plastic plants, and other goodies.

Okay, perhaps I did not dream about the masturbating monkey, or the aged Tweety bird, or the CCTV nest, but perhaps it’s better that way that I didn’t.

This was put up by the Wooster Collective, and i’m really glad that they did it. Apparently the owner behind all of this is Banksy. This display brightened up what was a fairly hectic and wild work day. Tomorrow, i’ll try to take my colleagues there for lunch and try to impart some of the non-sequitur goodness that it has to offer upon them.


89 Seventh Avenue South, New York, NY (Don’t forget the SOUTH part)

It is conveniently between West 4th and Bleecker Street in the West Village.

For those who operate on landmarks, it’s right next to Jekyl & Hyde’s.

What To Do

Bring a camera. Preferably something that records video.

The quality of the animatronics is very good. No visible wires or servo sounds. Study the mechanics of everything in action.

Taking pictures of the people’s reactions is something I should have done. People for the most part are generally amused by the exhibit, and their reactions border on hilarity. I’m sure I was like that too.

Bring a marker, and be prepared to tag the signature books that are at the cashier counter (No, it does not cost anything).

Some More Pictures…
