...And at that address, the Manor club has replaced its Seized by the Landlord signage with FOR RENT. The Manor was described thus: "Over-the-top perks befitting the wealthy bachelor theme--phone lines connected to charter jet companies, Escalades to swiftly deliver VIPs home...bottle service (starting at $1,600)." Also say goodbye to their "24-karat gold-gilded DJ booth":

I'm sure you'll post something regarding your piece in the Daily News today, but let me be the first to congratulate you on making it to the big time! I picked up the early edition after I got out of work at 4 AM and while skimming through the opinion section at a breakfast spot in Penn Station noticed the intriguing title. Like an idiot I never bothered to read the author's name until by around the second paragraph when I realized this sounded all-too-familiar. I let out a hearty laugh when my eyes finally crossed your name on the page. Good going, man. The Daily News must have somebody with good taste on their staff. Now my only fear is that the blog will become overrun with irate yunnies (not that I think many of them bother to read any part of the paper besides the celebrity sightings and fashion sections).
