Nightlife Notebook: Linsanity In the Clubs, Bungalow 8

New, 10 comments

CHELSEA— It was Linsanity at Avenue last night when Jeremy Lin, savior of the Knicks and New York's most popular person, showed up last night to celebrate the team's seventh straight win. According to reports, the entire club began chanting "All I do is Lin Lin Lin"!!! when the new King of New York walked into the club. [EaterWire]

CHELSEA— In the midst of issuing a comment about her former customer Zelda Kaplan's death, Amy Sacco casually let is slip out that she would be reopening Bungalow 8 in New York again, lamenting that she is devastated that Kaplan "won't be the first one through the door.” It certainly won't be the door at the old location, which is now an art gallery, and follows years of rumors that the Bungalow was coming back. If Double 7 can pull it off, why not this? [NYDN]

LOWER EAST SIDE— Here's something we thought we would never write. The Box celebrated its five year anniversary this week. Simon Hammerstein's den of adult performance debauchery celebrated in typical Box fashion, and it's amazing to see the club continue to pack it in and even expand after all of the various scandals and tribulations the place went through during its opening few years. Huzzah. [EaterWire]

ATLANTIC CITY— Three words: DJ Pauly D!!! America's favorite DJ has been booked as a summer resident at the Pool After Dark at Harrah's Atlantic City. Pauly D will debut on March 31st and return several times throughout the year. Sorry Hamptons, it looks like 2012 is shaping up to be Atlantic City's year to shine. [EaterWire]

LOWER EAST SIDE— Noel Ashman's soon to open new lounge the Elsinore hosted another "pre-construction" event last night for Richie Rich & Ross Higgins Fashion Week event. Party guests were greeted at the door by hastily printed signs begging them to "Pardon Our Appearance." The club will spend the next few weeks finishing construction, but for a sneak peak inside, take a look here. [Bowery Boogie/EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE— The Coen brothers are filming a new project in the East Village and have created an exterior set for a bar called Kettle of Fish, despite there being an actual bar with the same name in the West Village. Ah, the magic of Hollywood. [EVGrieve]
