    Cavomay31.jpgToday, Eater receives paperwork about a sexual harassment lawsuit filed between Mandalyn M. Devagno, Cavo Restaurant in Astoria, manager Toni (last name unknown), and owner Tommy Demaris from attorney Maimon Kirschenbaum. Devagno was a server employed at Cavo from August 2010 until last February, where both Toni and Demaris were present nearly every night of service supervising employees. The list of allegations against Demaris and manager Toni include a lack of payment for tips and hours worked along with some scandalous sexual abuse charges. Here are a few of the really R-rated accusations:

    · Defendant Demaris routinely told Plaintiff that he "wanted" her and regularly subjected her to unwelcome sexual grabbing.
    · Plaintiff was required to wear a short, black dress while performing her job. On several occasions, Defendant Demaris forcefully put his hands under Plaintiff's dress.
    · On several occasions around January 2011, Defendant Demaris put his hand on Plaintiff's groin and grabbed Plaintiff's hand to place it on his own groin.

    · On one occasion, Defendant Demaris unzipped his pants and removed his penis in front of the plaintiff. Defendant Demaris then told the Plaintiff to touch his penis.
    · Toni (manager) routinely told Plaintiff that he could fire her.
    · On or around January 2012, Toni told Plaintiff he was feeling upset, and the could help him feel better by rubbing his body...Toni chased Plaintiff, admonishing her not to walk away from him. Toni then touched Plaintiff's back, and said, "Let's flip a coin. Heads, I do whatever you want. Tails, you do whatever I want."

    Happy 193rd Birthday, Walt Whitman! On May 31, 1819 Walt Whitman was born in Huntington, Long Island (which has been in the news lately for less auspicious reasons). From there, the second of nine children grew up to become one of the America's greatest wordsmiths, not to mention arguably the patron saint of Brooklyn—as the editor of the Brooklyn Eagle he helped push for the creation of Fort Greene Park in 1843! So how are you going to celebrate the 193rd birthday of the man? We've got some suggestions! [ more › ]

    Today we took to the streets to ask big sugary beverage drinkers have to say about Mayor Bloomberg's proposed ban on large sugary drinks. The ban would outlaw sweetened drinks larger than 16 fluid ounces from all eating establishments regulated by the Health Department. While some New Yorkers appreciated the sentiment behind the ban, many were skeptical about of the actual impact it will have. Others were firmly opposed to the government meddling with their right to choose whether they want 470 calories in one foul gulp. [ more › ]

    Name: Clem & Louisa
    Location: Cape Town, South Africa
    Type of space: Urban Backyard

    Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: At the end of a major renovation project we were left with a serious mess and zero cash. Our space is tiny and we were determined to maximize every inch, to include a minute plunge pool and still have loads of seating and lounging options (relatively speaking of course) and a seamless indoor-outdoor flow. Low maintenance being key…

    enterprise.jfk.file On Sunday morning, the Space Shuttle Enterprise is tentatively scheduled to begin its barge trip along New York City waterways toward its new home at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

    If the weather and tides cooperate, the shuttle will depart JFK on Sunday at 7:45 a.m. The shuttle will not be covered during the trip, but rather will be exposed for full public view, a museum spokesman today told NewYorkology.

    A Weeks Marine tugboat will tow the barge from JFK along the shore of Queens and Brooklyn, passing the Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge at 3:30 p.m., Coney Island at 4:19 p.m. and under the Verrazano Bridge at 5:34 p.m. It will dock at 6 p.m. at Weeks Marine in Port Elizabeth in New Jersey, where it will remain until Tuesday morning.

    On Tuesday — again dependent on a number of factors including the weather — the barge carrying the Enterprise will depart Weeks Marine at 9:15 a.m. and pass the Statue of Liberty at 9:50 a.m. and near the the World Trade Center at 10:40 a.m. The barge will continue up the Hudson River and arrive at the Intrepid Museum at 11:30 a.m.

    The next three hours will be spent lifting the shuttle by crane onto the USS Intrepid’s flight deck. It will face out toward the Hudson River.

    The Enterprise is the original NASA test orbiter for the space shuttle program. In recent years it has been on display at the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington Dulles International Airport.

    On July 19, the Enterprise will go on public display at the Intrepid in a temporary climate-controlled pavilion. Museum officials continue to work on a permanent exhibit facility to showcase the Enterprise.

    Married "Horndog High" Teacher Turns Herself In, Faces Statutory Rape Charges This morning, the Daily News featured a 36-year-old married English teacher on their cover: English teacher Erin Sayar, who teaches at "Horndog High" James Madison High School, had allegedly been instructing a 16-year-old student in the finer points of sexting, late night SUV sexcapades, and smoking pot in school.

    Tomorrow morning, Anshu Jain will start his new job as co-CEO of Deutsche Bank. Despite having previously overseen operations that produce 90 percent of the firm’s profits in any given quarter, sitting on the management committee, and generally being considered a “star” both within the company and among those who follow his work, chief executive officer is a title no one thought AJ would be given if he remained at DB, because 1) people back in Germany don’t like that he’s an investment banker and 2) “In Germany, no one can imagine an Indian working in London who does not speak German being CEO of Deutsche Bank.” To the haters’ chagrin, though, that’s exactly what’s about to happen. And if they want to continue bitching about it, they can be Jain’s guest– their insults go in one ear and out the other.

    While Mr. Jain has taken German lessons, he doesn’t speak the language, and Der Spiegel, the country’s best-selling weekly magazine, ran a 12-page cover story earlier this year laying much of the blame for Deutsche Bank’s troubles at Mr. Jain’s feet.

    Mr. Jain, 49 years old, played a central role in building Deutsche Bank’s investment-banking business over nearly two decades as it reached beyond its staid commercial-banking roots. Investment banking now generates about 70% of the overall bank’s profits most quarters. He takes the [CEO] post at a time when many analysts consider the lender one…

    MTA Workers Win Right To Wear Turbans In $184K Settlement A long legal battle with the MTA has ended favorably for Sikh and Muslim transit employees who, until now, have been denied the right to wear turbans on the job. The turban ban was implemented after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and workers who refused to remove their turbans or attach the authority’s logos were transferred to nonpublic positions. The Sikh Coalition subsequently filed a lawsuit against the MTA alleging religious discrimination, and yesterday the Justice Department announced a fat settlement in their favor. [ more › ]
