Reader Ian Dutton sends these shots of the pop-up café that just went up at "local" -- a coffee shop on Sullivan Street in SoHo.

Their bid was the only one of six applications to withstand the onslaught from local reactionary Sean Sweeney.

In related news, a new pop-up café also went up at Ecopolis in Cobble Hill today.
