The Trader Joe's cometh.
Opportunistic fat cat Boro Prez Marty Markowitz will make political hay on the corner of Court and Atlantic this morning, officially hailing the arrival of Brooklyn's Trader Joe's. There will be a "parade," beginning at Marty's office on Joralemon Street. At the present Independence Bank, he and someone from Two Trees (ooh!) will make the proclamation. There will be a Caribbean steel drum band, as cheesy as you like it. I'm happy it's official, but I think I'll skip this event.
