The Observer today claims to have the “exclusive” that Tracey Westmoreland is planning to revive Anthony Bourdain’s — and just about everyone else’s — fave dive, Siberia. Of course we already told you that back in May, but there is the news that Westmoreland has decided to settle in Hell’s Kitchen, possibly in the same space on West 40th Street he vacated to begin with. Westmoreland’s also working as “minister of propaganda” at the club Charity, opening in the former BED space, where clubgoers will be able to allot a portion of their boozing money to a good cause (like elevator safety!). Also in clubland, Guest of a Guest has it that Kiss and Fly will open soon where Aer Lounge used to be. Sounds like it’s going to be an overpriced bottle-service spot, which is why our name for it is going to be Dine and Dash (to Siberia!).
