1st Annual Cancer is Ugly! Ugly Sweater Party – Not Ugly Hop Sing Laundromat

I heard the news today, oh boy
that Hop Sing Laundromat will open by New Year’s Eve. I have no idea of the time frame, it’s a mystery.
Butt you can bet that your gonna love the place. It’s eclectic, and while you nurse your favorite drink there’s plenty to see on the wall, on the bar, in the chairs around you.
Speaking of chairs, Lee knew I’d be perfect for checking out the constitution of the chairs.
This was my favorite one. There’s a couple of couches too. Follow the progress on twitter at @HopSingLaundry or at the website (The site will probably solve the mystery of when the much anticipated bar opens to the public. No doubt both will go live the same day.) Check out Michael Klein’s column to see how you can snag a first entrant ticket to enter.

Now check out the Ugly Sweater Party which benefited The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, plus they’re a hoot!
