Chocolate Altoids Anti-Valentine Coffee Shoppe

When Altoids introduced their chocolate-covered mints for Valentine's Day in 2007, they set up a pop-up coffee shop in New York City's Greenwich Village with an anti-Valentine theme. The windows were totally blacked out and you didn't know what it was until you entered. They had gold and black wallpaper, a steampunk video game console, statues and paintings of stabbed hearts and Red Riding Hood figures, and an espresso bar serving free coffee and samples of Chocolate Altos. This is a statue by Markus Pierson with the espresso bar in the background. It appears to be one of his coyote figures standing in for the Big Bad Wolf.
