102 norfolk street, nyc 10002

enter through the small gate that says

"lower east side toy company", walk through

the alleyway and up the  stairs at the end. this is

the same hidden entrance used during prohibition

by meyer lansky and other gangsters, though the

space at that time was just called "the back of

ratner's". ratner's was a famous kosher

dairy restaurant on delancey st.

from 1905 to 2004.

i look forward to spending valentine's day with you!


the DRAGON BALL is coming up in march.

it'll be a little late this year, as we are still looking

for the right venue, but it will be happening.
