    Siberia, AER Get Second Incarnations; BED Space Donated to CharityThe 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!).

    Siberia: Not Banished Yet!Beloved dive Siberia recently closed its doors at its second location when a long-running feud with the landlord ended in the nonrenewal of its lease, but rest assured owner Tracy Westmoreland isn’t leaving the business for his budding acting career. “We’re running around negotiating for another space,” he tells us. Although he’s been “all over town” looking at spaces such as Martignetti’s Liquors, Westmoreland doesn’t yet know where he’ll end up (“It’s not about where it’s at, it’s about what it is,” he tells us) or whether he’ll end up with enough space to continue to host bands, and he isn’t putting a time frame on the reopening: “It’s like trying to say when you’re going to get a new girlfriend.” When he does get hitched, we’ll be the first to raise our bottles — and smash ‘em against the wall.
