0807fpan.jpgNew York's beloved little wine, dine and party boat, The Frying Pan, has finally opened up for business after being anchored by permit problems. After they didn't open up in May or June, things were starting to look grim. Today brings good news from Grub Street, however, as they report the Pan "quietly reopened last Thursday" and now sports "a fancier covered bar area, some new antique bar stools, a central fountain, and Ping-Pong and Foosball tables." As previously reported, closing time has been moved up to the respectable hour of 1 a.m., and the boat is now docked at Pier 66.
