    Until now, all the people from 1414 would come to Mikvah Meir on Shabbos to take advantage of the lack of turnstile.

    Iím not from 1414 but I come to MM to take advantage of the better towels, I donít care much for the turnstile :P

    Someone just put in an order for me to pick up from sweet expressions (didn't go yet) so I assume they are still taking orders. And I believe they do deliver as well.

    Was thinking the same, you can also check if they have any options on UberEats.

    Good rumor, anything is better than these places staying shuttered. Letís hope the prices and quality will be reasonable.

    My sources say that HOG will be a butcher shop with a simcha hall on top. But as with his other places he can either change his mind or do nothing with any of these locations.
