New, 2 comments

NYC?Mayors Bloomberg and Schmitt wagered over the upcoming game between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers. If the Giants win, Mayor Schmitt will send local cheese curds and Titletown’s Sno-Cap root beer. If the Packers win, Mayor Bloomberg will send Junior’s cheesecake and – in honor of the touchdown dance stylings of Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz – salsa from the Brooklyn Salsa Company.

PROSPECT HEIGHTS?Steel workers celebrated the topping out of the Barclays Center steel framing. The event marked the significant milestone of the completion of the 10,400 tons of structural steel for Barclays Center. To thank the approximately 500 steel workers who worked on the building, the Nets gave out 1,000 tickets to future weekend games. [CurbedWire Inbox]
