News broke early Monday that trendy frozen yogurt shop Pinkberry on 82nd and 2nd had rodents, quite a few of them, running all over, in a scene that brought Taco Bell to mind. 78th and 2nd posted an item a few days before the news broke, that showed the line at Pinkberry, which ran out the door, down the street and was 40-45 strong.
It’s three days after the news broke and I’m guessing business at Pinkberry is bad. I bet they’re PR department is scrambling to get people back in the door. It’s probably tough to build credibility and trust with customers when you’re a so-called provider of healthy treats and vermin were (or still are?) running around the same areas and surfaces you use to store, prepare and serve food….right?
This is Wednesday night. Rats Monday = line 50 deep on Wednesday.
And from the right side.
I’m at a loss here and honestly think the people who came up with Pinkberry are human history’s greatest geniuses, probably capable of curing AIDS and cancer in an afternoon if they weren’t busy with frozen yogurt. It’s either that or they got their recipes from Pablo Escobar, because I’ve never seen anything like this.
Meanwhile, three doors down from Pinkberry is Chinese food place Empire Wok. I’ve never heard that they have rats…
but on the same night, at the same time, they also have no customers. And by “no” i truly mean not one. It’s a dark photo but believe me when i say no one was in there.
Are “rats” the new “good review in the New York Times?”
