New York, NY. December, 2006

Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed these simple steps. Or at least that’s what the owners of this short-lived but earnest automat on St. Mark’s Place had hoped. Alas, for all their burger sliders, their peanut-butter-and-jelly tidbits, their mac and cheese offerings, the place failed. Still it was fun (and pink) while it lasted. And their attempt to revive the automat trend of the early 20th century was admirable but not all that sustainable. The backwards cap on the “how it works” fellow should indicate the demographic they were hoping to capture. Didn’t work.
