In a shocking PR war twist, Phillip Baltz (& Co.) have replaced Bullfrog & Baum as the PR company of record at the one day old Lonesome Dove. As Jennifer Baum explained to Eater, "The deal is simply that we have wrapped up our official work with Tim now that he's open and we're very happy to have Phil Baltz and his team taking over from here." Indeed, Baltz confirmed the love-in with, "We're thrilled to be working with Tim and Lonesome Dove."
Isn't it nice when one firm being ousted and another swooping in on the eve of an opening can be so amicable and nice and happy and friendly and happy friendly? In light of such happiness, we imagine it was just a coincidence that during their opening night party, Baum was spotted in a heated exchange with Lonesome Dove chef/owner Tim Love (an extremely rare pose for Baum, it should be noted). And it probably wasn't awkward having both PR camps in the room for the party either.
