Seen & Heard: Rumble Boxing will reopen
RUMBLE BOXING STILL WITH US
Despite signs that some commenters noticed, Rumble Boxing — which opened in November 2019 — is not closing. From their PR folk: “Signage is being upgraded in anticipation of their reopening.” And the signage to the left of their door, she said, is for the space next door — and that certainly isn’t doing them any favors.
HEYDAY FRANCHISES THE BIZ
Heyday, which opened here in 2016, has just franchised up the business. The fee is $50k, and their estimate for a build out ranges from $500k to $700k. The company was founded by Adam Ross and Michael Pollak first in Nomad and then on Reade Street.
SEEN AT THE ODEON
The Broadway stars and singers Orfeh and Andy Karl posed with Odeon maitre d’ Roya Shanks at the restaurant last week. The couple met on the stage in Saturday Night Fever, and were both cast in Legally Blonde, Pretty Woman and — this can’t be coincidence — the rock musical Bright Lights, Big City.
