Pick of the Day: Elizabeth Knight: The Claw

This one's for the boys, we could never forget y'all! Elizabeth Knight makes these oxidized silver claw cuff links...yeah that's right, I said CLAW cuff links. So hard! So good!

And while we're speaking of claws, guess who popped into the Greenpoint store last week! None other than DR. CLAW (NY Mag wrote an awesome article about him this week). If you haven't heard of this man, then listen up. He runs an underground lobster roll business out of his basement in Greenpoint and it's pretty much the BEST THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD, so I've been told. I haven't had it yet, but my friend Lee rolled up one day a few months ago licking his fingers and bragging about this amazing, secret lobster roll he just ate, so I'd been wanting to get this guys number for a long time!

The whole operation is super secret hush hush. To order, you have to text him what you want, he tells you to walk around the block a few times till your food is ready, then he meets you on the corner, you give him exact change and he hands you the sandwich.

The best part is that Dr. Claw (aka Ben) gets into character when working and dresses up as a drug dealer who weara a lot of bling. Which is where Old Hollywood came in. Our big gold, Anomaly anchor necklace caught his eye and is now part of the Dr. Claw outfit!

Anyways, since I haven't tried a roll yet and Dr. Claw is pretty much the nicest/coolest guy ever, he gave me his number and promised me a roll and a tour of the infamous lobster roll kitchen. It's actually kind of retarded how excited I am for this! I'll keep you kids posted!
