Deal to bring SPiN to BayWalk falling apart

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

I spoke with one of the principals involved with the proposal to bring SPiN, an upscale table-tennis themed club and restaurant, to BayWalk.  That deal was dead before Sandra Gadsden wrote about it last week, although there is talk of bringing SPiN to a different location in St. Petersburg. By the way, as someone who travels to New York often, describing SPiN, as Gadsden did, as “one of the hottest spots to open in New York City in the last…

5 things I think about today’s St. Petersburg Times (6/13)

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Wouldn’t the St. Petersburg Times just save a lot of time and money if it could figure out a way to sick PolitiFact onto the Scientologists?  And the Navy Veterans Association, for that matter.  Can you imagine if you live in Clearwater and you are, in fact, a Scientologist and a donor to the Navy Veterans Association…you must be ready to paint-ball the entire Times building Anyway, the absolute must-read in today’s St. Petersburg Times — and a great example of why…

In the wake of the police raid on the Bottoms to the Top club, one thing is clear: Bill Foster sure is a sanctimonious SOB

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

What a sanctimonious son-of-a-bitch! Damn right I am talking about Bill Foster, who has so little to show for his five months on the job that he found it necessary to stand outside the Bottom to the Top club on Friday, as it was being raided by the police. With arms crossed in righteous indignation, Foster is reported to have said: “That is a nasty place inside. Nothing good happens inside those walls. Quite frankly, these places aren’t welcome in St.…

5 things I think I think about today’s St. Petersburg Times

You don’t realize how lacking for original commentary the St. Petersburg Times is until Howard Troxler goes on vacation.  This is the Achilles Heal of the newspaper — the holes in its lineup of columnists.  Sue Carlton is the Columnist Who Isn’t There and Ernest Hooper is, like the dude in this spoof of The New York Times, just a Cool Black Guy. PolitiFact may wins awards, but columnists sell newspapers and there isn’t a metro columnist writing for the…
