Last night: putting the finishing touches on Painkiller, the Essex Street tiki bar to be officially unveiled on Thursday, but (just in time for Cinco de Mayo) already open to ‘friends and family.”  More thunderstorms today and a high of 80. A reminder for LES business and property owners: tonight’s the night you’ll be able to ask questions of New York City’s finance commissioner. Click here for more info. Also this evening: the LES Food Co-op has an organizing meeting.
