We’re pretty lucky to have some pretty cool friendsS
o, as you know—or now know—the Whalebone Shop on Bleecker Street is up and running and though it may not be a library or that one insanely comfortable pop-up shop anymore, it’s alive and well and still at 326 Bleecker Street and there are a lot of new things in store. Literally.
You’ll recognize some old familiar friends if you’ve been through the shop in any of its past incarnations. There was no chance we were getting rid of that pool table. And there are few new friends and goings-on to tell you about.
The fine fellows at Accidentally Wes Anderson will continue to pop-up with copies of Accidentally Wes Anderson: The Book on offer and other fun and shenanigans. And where there once was a hot chocolate stand, you will find Whalebone’s Montauk Brew Co. Outpost To-Go and NadaMoo! vegan ice cream. Up to you if you want them paired together. Ridiculously soft apparel, whiskey, absolutely no moos, local NYC small businesses, really good beer, maybe a yellow dog or two, a whole hell of a lot of (hopefully still living) plants, coffee, some pretty rad people, and probably a bunch of other things that should be included in this list. Be there or be square. Even though we love Square, the company powering our small business friends that you’ll find at the shop. And that, dear friends, is what it’s all about. We get by with a little help from our friends, and we may or may not get high with a little help from our friends.
See you at the billiards table.

Square Supporting Small NYC Biz
Square has been championing small businesses, especially those owned and operated by minorities and women. A few such NYC local businesses are gathered in the Bleecker Street shop. From handcrafted jewelry to a jungle of plants looking for a forever home. The list of businesses included could make all of your holiday shopping a breeze. The big corporations don’t do an “I made a sale” dance when they sell something, but Matt might if you take one of the plants before he has a chance to forget to water it. It’s the little things in life.
Small Biz Selection
Available now through the end of March, 2021.
The beautiful lovechild of golf and cornhole that makes it possible to work on your short game wherever the hell you feel like it. Bleecker seems to be an ideal location considering the Chippo logo is “Chip it and sip it” and we have plenty of fine things for you to sip while you chip. Confused on how someone could mash together the classic backyard staple and the country club life and what miraculous things can come out of it? Look no further. At home, at the beach, in the backyard, at the shop on Bleecker.
Available now through 2021.
Plastic straws suck. We all know that, but paper straws also suck. Good thing Eightysix Straws are made from grass. Yep. Grass. No you can’t smoke them—it’s not that kind of grass but it’s 100% natural and sustainable and they don’t disintegrate in whatever beverage you may be sipping on while working on your Chippo game. Available for purchase and used in any to-go drink that might strike your fancy in the Shop on Bleecker. Ever had a Montauk Brew Co. seltzer through a straw? Now’s the time. The turtles will love you for it.
Available now through the rest of 2021.
