LOWER EAST SIDE— LES bar and raunchy burlesque host The Slipper Room is undergoing some serious renovations: "...the landlord of the one-story building is adding a second floor to the club.

LOS ANGELESTop Chef alum Fabio Viviani on receiving a zero star review in the LA Times: "I don't give a sh*t. I was looking forward to her [S. Irene Virbila's] review; she can be tough, but sometimes she's got her point.
