I was somewhere in the Theater Distract / Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood when I snapped this photo of a Pink Neon Sign outside of a Japanese Restaurant. Because, Pink Thing.
This cleverly-name-drink menu was spotted outside McGee’s Pub, the bar that served as the inspiration for McLaren’s Pub on the hit TV series How I Met Your Mother. I wonder if they also host a Trivia Night?
McGee’s Pub and Restaurant is Located at 240 West 55th Street (Between Broadway and 8th Avenues) in Midtown Manhattan.
Photographed on November 8th, 2016 at 8 PM, near the corner of 14th Street and Avenue B. Looks like somebody knew something we didn’t.
Update 11/23/17: I just found out, Thanks to Instagram, that the artist is Matt Starr!

Since I can’t be everywhere at once, I have secret, Pop Culture spies located all over the country, who are always on the look out for Pink Things and Bacon Things that they can send me to put on this here blog. The above sign was spotted at a Green Market in San Diego, California. Thank you, Spies!
Our friends from Petersen Parts have mentioned an avid customer of theirs, Chinese artist Siu Lan Ko makes objects, public works, performances, videos and installations. Words and slogans as readymades are at the center of her art process. Living in both China and Canada, she enjoys wordplay and actions which reflect the misunderstandings and contradictions that result from different coexisting cultures, languages and social systems, stemming from her China East versus China West cultural experiences. Her performances, installations, objects and Public Works utilized the possibilities created by the impossibility of translation, and embrace the poetic limitations of speech.
