A new IHOP pancake house is soon to open soon on 14th Street in Manhattan's East Village, the downtown epicenter of college kids and other tight-jeaned menaces.  Managers are expecting so many late-night customers streaming in from the bars they've hired security.


Yes, they'll have someone - presumably big and strong - to man the door every night from 11p.m. to 7a.m., so waitstaff and managers and other employees won't have to deal with drunks acting stupid in the middle of the night.

And who can blame them?  Anyone who's ever been to NYC knows the late night bar and diner scene is a horror show. With a security guy at the door, though, the drunk and obnoxious can be bounced away and sent home before they cause trouble inside.

Of all places!  An IHOP gets a bouncer.  No place but New York.   You gotta love that town.
