LOOKOUT PM: A graveyard performance, chicken sandwiches and 4/20 deals

Happy Friday, folks.

The sun is doing its best to peek out from behind those rainclouds that soaked the city last night, but it looks like more is on the way tomorrow!

As you may have read in Morning Lookout, this week’s MVP Giovanni Moujaes has been tirelessly working to resolve a persistent technical issue with our email provider. Now, it appears that he just might have found a solution.

Still, please let us know if you got the newsletter via email by shooting a text at our breaking news Subtext channel. Let me know what your favorite Boardwalk ride is. Personally, I’m partial to Logger’s Revenge ... aside from the Giant Dipper, of course.
