You're never too old to appreciate a little tasteful T&A, which is exactly what Ray's Candy Store owner Ray Alvarez enjoyed this week to celebrate his 82nd birthday! The Avenue A fixture was flooded with a bevy of buxom broads on Tuesday night—Juno who?—when the shop's weathered counter saw a lot more action than the regular hot dogs and beignets.
This year, six performers took the "stage"—there are more and more each year!—bringing plenty of boas, pasties, tassels and smiles to the diminutive lunch counter. It was also cause for celebration for the restaurant, which celebrated 40 years last year, a big deal milestone considering all the upheaval in recent memory. Alvarez was presented with a scrapbook for the occasion (aww) and some titillating memories to last him to 83.
