LPR At Night

JANUARY 16, 2005 --

Last Wednesday, LPR discovered "Siberia," a Manhattan nightspot on West 40th Street.

A few months earlier, Siberia had been discovered by Regis Philbin, LPR
learned from owner Tracy Westmoreland, who has been moonlighting as an actor.

He is in the upcoming independent film "Never Down," with Kurt Vonnegut, and is pursuing tv roles.

LPR got some photos of Mr. Westmoreland with Emily Fitzgerald, a filmmaker herself, whose group, "Keltic
Guru" performed on the Siberiia basement stage, that night.

To find Siberia, open the door below the red light on the south side of 40th Street, just east of Ninth Avenue.

The newest nightspot in midtown must be "Temple" which had its openintg January 14. The event was occasion for a party in the Temple VIP section, on the second
floor, hosted by Renata Lorenc, Brendan Macdevitte and Jerry Lopez.

Among those on hand were independent
film director Alan Chan, actor-model Ariot Myrtaj, the talent director J.T., Veltis Harrattan, and Leslie Watson, who, LPR thinks, could be sister to Law and Order's Elisabeth Bohm.

Temple was packed on opening night. Located at 340 West 52nd Street, it is
next door to the musical Hairspray.

And, LPR was impressed with the friendliness of the club's staff, including
the guys at the door!

Note: Veltis and Renata will begin a Mayhem Party Series at Temple, January 21. Please use the LPR link to Veltis for details.
