    My boyfriend is working the overnight shift at a CVS in Park Slope tonight. I’m really excited about sending him out into a hurricane for the 1.5 customers who will actually be going to the drugstore at 3 am.

    American Beer Distributor (Thrifty Beverage) on Court Street has sign saying that they are open until 3:30.  I saw a lot of people buying cases and ice.  As of 10:30 am, Stinky Brooklyn on Smith was open (still had eggs, milk, bread, cheese, meat, etc.)  Smith Street’s Met Food was absolutely insane.  I’ve never seen it with lines like this.

    No sign of what they are doing at Cobble Hill Cinemas.
