MEATPACKING DISTRICT— Dreams of a Timberlake nightclub have just been axed: "Meeting an immovable wall of community opposition, Justin Timberlake and partners apparently have been scared off from opening a new nightclub in the former Manor space on Eighth Ave. between 13th and 14th Sts....the neighborhood coalition of residents, as well as business owners, that rallied around the issue collected 650 petition signatures against the proposed nightspot." [Chealsea Now] UPDATE: Eytan Sugarman contacts us to make a correction to the Chelsea Now article. He tells us Justin Timberlake was never involved in the project nor did he know anything about it. Secondly, while Sugarman and his partners were interested in the Manor space, they pulled out three months ago after learning of community opposition.

My companions and I, all steak lovers, were thrilled with it." [Diner's Journal]
