A Fan Reviews Avery's New Bar

Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants has Ranger season-ticket holder Dave's take on opening night of Sean Avery's new Tribeca nightspot, Warren 77...

"Anyway, so we walk in and the first person, and first cool moment of the night, we see is Shanny standing against a wall talking playoffs with someone. The place was crowded, but not too crowded. So, as we make our way towards the bar, we pass Avery, who was chatting with some of the people. He was all Vogued up with his outfit, too. A nice, button down with a zipper kind of vest. He's about 5-feet-10 but real stocky. We get to the bar and standing right in front of us is Henrik. I didn't notice him at first because he had a black fedora on but my wife, who is madly in love with him and would've left me there for him, noticed him right away. He was talking with Larry "Ratso" Sloman and a few other people about music and hockey. We got there late, so we didn't hear him play. Someone said that he played an acoustic set earlier in the night. So, we bellied up to the bar literally right next to him. He was really nice, talking with everyone, and even signed someone's CD. We introduced ourselves to him and, like I said, was really cool. He's tall, about 6-1. We even met his girlfriend Therese."
