Uh…maybe? Thanks to one of our faithful tipsters, we got a link to this hi-LARIOUS real estate blog post/property listing this morning, which seems to imply that it’s a done deal and that Starr himself is already in the kitchen making the tamales. Dig it:
This property [1525-27 Frankford Avenue] is a prime example of the Real Estate lingo Location! Location! Location! It is in the center of the The Frankford Avenue Arts Corridor. Neighborhoods that are touched by rich history, exciting new development and Investment Opportunities. A diverse mix of artists, working families, and young professionals that line the area of Fishtown, East Kensington, and Port Richmond who support Frankford Avenue and call it home. This is where you want to open your new or existing business. As you know, businesses feed off of each other and along the Frankford Ave Corridor, we have many successful businesses such as Frankford Hall by “Steven Starr”, Johnny Brenda’s, East Side Bottle Cap featuring a variety of micro brews, art studios, coffee shops and more. New businesses are popping up everyday on this up and coming Corridor, one being Steven Starrs latest project, a Mexican Themed Restaurant just 200 ft. away from this prime location. Get it while the price is right, the market is on the rise!
Oh, there is just so much to make fun of here. Like the random capitalization, the awesome misspellings, the fact that “Steven Starr” is apparently an imaginary character requiring quotes around his name. Or the fascinating information on East Side Bottle Cap which apparently features “micro brews, art studios, coffee shops and more.” I want to go to there!
But anyway, being the thorough researchers that we are over here at Foobooz World HQ, we put a call in to Starr this morning and asked two questions. First, has he recently changed the spelling of his name for no good reason (no), and second, is he opening a Mexican restaurant in Fishtown?
And that’s where things got weird.
