Soooo… Some of you may remember our Best Bodega in NYC Contest. I know I do (professionally, I’ve been required to remember it). The winner of this contest was On the Corner in Windsor Terrace, thanks to the heartfelt write-up by Ryan McManus. Well, as promised, Ryan received a week’s supply of beer (from On the Corner, of course) hand-delivered to his boudoir. Truly, an awkward situation for all involved! Photo evidence of just that, after the jump:
