The days may be numbered for the Third Avenue Roll-n-Roaster, the Heaven-sent East Village outpost of the Sheepshead Bay spot that has served up dirt-cheap roast beef, pizza, "cheez" and beer to broke NYU students and locals for a little while now. According to blog Evil Discussor, the place will be kaput soon. Now, is it safe to go on information being reported on a blog, when that anonymous blogger doesn't even say how he/she heard the news? In this case, probably so. Let's just say this blogger is somewhat a R-n-R loyalist, and would not want to see incorrect information passed on about the restaurant. How do we know? Here's Evil Discussor's reaction to the news:
WHY DIDN'T YOU FREQUENT THIS PLACE ENOUGH, EAST VILLAGERS? OR SHOULD I SAY, FUCKERS? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? WAS IT NOT DELICIOUS ENOUGH FOR YOU? WERE THERE NOT ENOUGH OPTIONS FOR YOU ON ITS INSANELY LARGE MENU? WAS THERE NOT ENOUGH GRAVY FOR YOU ON ITS DELIGHTFULLY JUICY ROAST BEEF SANDWICH? IF NOT, YOU COULD'VE GOTTEN SOME EXTRA ON THE SIDE, IDIOT! You should've been there for the Roll n Roaster when it was there for you. Shame on you.
Well, Roll-n-Roaster, apparently you'll be missed.
