New York Loses a Legend

Elaine-Kaufman.jpgSome sad news out of New York: Elaine Kaufman, owner of the legendary Upper East Side haunt Elaine's, died today. She was 81. We know this isn't about someone in Chicago, but Elaine's was one of New York's great spots in its day and impacted so many people. We're sure there'll be a big party, and maybe Billy Joel will sing "Big Shot." [~ENY~]
