Whoa! What was that? QUICK HITS! Lots of goodies to report on from around the way, so let's get to it.
- Is it officially over for the Bea? According to Page Six, the answer is a resounding Yes, with NIMBY's lined up to do everything in their power to prevent our little girl from ever re-opening. Sounds bleak, but perhaps their is some light at the back of that little dark room. A Little Birdy on the inside told DBTH recently that it may not be curtains for the Beatrice, so flame away if you want, but we hold out hope. [P6]
- Our main main Steve Lewis sits down with Genc Jakupi to talk about how amazing the Box was, is, and always will be. As for people who have to wait, well, everyone waits or pays the consequences. Is it just us, or do his interviews break some kind of world record for the most statements and fewest questions? So it's not just us? [BB]
- Mr. MePa has the juice on what to expect from the Meatpacking District 3.0, including the planned retractable roof on Provocateur, and the 18th Floor Standard cocktail lounge that is coated in gold. [GSNY]
- Speaking of gold, have you heard about this new hot spot, Goldbar? Did you know Lenny Kravitz loves it there? What do you mean you do? That's old news? You don't say? [NYT]
