Correction of the week: Trump is NOT opening a tiki bar at Trump SoHo™ Hotel Condominium New York

Ha! We love Scoopy for this one... in this weeks's issue of The Villager...

A Scoopy’s Notebook item last week wrongly reported that a ground-floor space in the new Trump Soho tower at Dominick and Spring Sts. is slated to be a tiki bar. Eve McGrath, a P.R. spokesperson for the project, set us straight. "First, the property is Trump SoHo™ Hotel Condominium New York," she said, regarding the edifice complex's proper name. Second, she said, "There is no tiki bar planned for Trump SoHo." In fact, according to an explanatory press release McGrath sent us, the spot will be home to a lounge named Bazaar, "created by the team behind South Beach's hottest nightspots, Miami-based restaurant and hospitality group, KNR… . Bazaar will be the place to see and be seen while enjoying impeccable cocktails and playlists by renowned DJs. Luxuriously textured wood walls have a split-face finish, with a simple polished dark charcoal concrete floor continuing the raw and rich design elements in this posh lounge designed by Rockwell." Maybe the construction worker who gave us the wrong information was basing his opinion on the "textured wood walls" with their "split-face finish," which probably look — we're just taking a wild guess here — tiki bar-ish. On the other hand, maybe he was just an "apprentice." Ka-ching!

My, how I hate PR people, and Donald Trump (TM). I cannot think of a more disreputable career -- in both cases.
