It's not your Uncle Jimmy's convenience store.

Last Friday I read in The New York Times about tomorrow's opening in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (New York) of Brooklyn Standard, a bodega/small grocery/convenience mart. Well, apparently GLUTEN FREE PASTA will be among the foods available at the new bodega. Sheez. When I was a kid my friends and I used to walk to "that store down the block" to buy slushies, Bazooka bubble gum, Pixy Stix and such.

Thanks for passing the link along last week, I really enjoyed reading her interview and now I am a fan of her blog. She's really talented!

bodegas in brooklyn are great -- i was there a few weekends ago and found gluten free items in almost every one we went into.

I haven't seen that brand of pasta here in Oregon, but my cousin found it in California. Is it any good?
