Catastrophe at Beer Island

Amy found a double apostrophe catastrophe at a Coney Island liquor store called Beer Island. What a cool name for a liquor store, right? Too bad about the punctuation errors.

On the left, we have it's rather than its, and on the right, today's is missing an apostrophe. "Maybe the apostrophe jumped from one sign to the other?" Amy wonders.

The sign on the right quotes the NY Times. I wonder if that mistake was in print, too. If so, we can't blame Beer Island.

Speaking of which, it's almost 5:00 on a Friday -- nearly time to take a sail over to Beer Island.

Thanks, Amy!

Oops, I'm an idiot. Thanks for pointing that out. I fixed it.
