"A Run on Earplugs" at Smith & Union?


Our Carroll Gardens correspondent caught the building of a new outdoor bar at Union Smith Cafe on Friday and by Saturday it was complete and awaiting nice weather. One of the partners in the cafe is Jim Mamary, who is behind a number of eateries and is not universally loved in Carroll Gardens. Our correspondent writes:
It seems the Jim Mamary entourage has liquor on the brain. Not only will residents of Carroll Gardens near Union and Smith have to deal with noise and filthy trash from Smith & Union Cafe and The Gowanus Yacht Club, there will be something new to groan about. Smith and Union Cafe is building an outdoor bar to compliment their al fresco diners. I see a run on earplugs... Mamary's partner owns the cafe and Mamary is the behind the hated Hoyt Street Oyster Bar plan.
A sure sign that good weather is right around the corner.

I know everyone just loves the al fresco dining and drinking...but it is about time laws enforced or more restrictions placed on hours of operation , extent of operation.
This goes for all the restuarants/bars with backyard usage also--- which often is worse than the street side because backyard noise seems to echo/amplify from enclosed areas.

The outdoor area also sits on con ed equipment or MTA junk. note the grids and baracades around it when the tables are out. I also must complain about the fake jazz that wafts through the air in the summer months..and the smelly oil that runs onto the sidewalk and into the bus stop...and the fish heads..and the general yuck. I will never eat there..and calls to 311 do nada.

I don't understand why they're not going up to 4th Avenue to take advantage of the density of the new condo buyers who will be clamoring for bars and restaurants with fake themes. I mean, there's nothing on 4th, and Smith is becoming over-saturated. Why don't they leave the quiet blocks alone and go to noisy 4th Ave?
