STEVE WALTER'S CUTTING ROOM closed last night, and as expected, went out with a big blow out. When I arrived, they still hadn't let the audience in for the closing night performance of JOAN RIVERS ... making it body-to-body from the moment I entered. Many of the regulars showed as promised including co-owner CHRIS NOTH, DAILY NEWS-photographer DICK CORKERY, Public Relations Powerhouse CLAIRE O'CONNOR, Pasha DAVID SALIDOR, Times Square Gossip's JAMES EDSTROM, KEITH GIRARD from THE IMPROPER, Penthouse Magazine's LANIE SPEISER with Pet-JUSTINE JOLI and AMIE CAMPBELL, HENRY EDWARDS, Q104's KEN DASHOW, JUDY KATZ, Party King and actor KEITH COLLINS, JON MOORHEAD, DENNIS FERRANTE, RUSS TITLEMAN, SANDY HICKS, among others, and the always wonderful staff there, PETER ABRAHAM, SUSAN HATHAWAY, HOWARD MARK and owner Steve Walter. It's hard to believe that the club has been there for 10 years and in that time, certainly made its mark as the premiere live music attraction in NYC. Since The Bottom Line closed, The Cutting Room has been THE musical destination in the city. And, its presented some of the best music around, NEIL YOUNG,MAZARIN, BILLY J. KRAMER, DONOVAN, MELANIE, AL STEWART, JIMMY WEBB and, many, many more. Much of the conversation centered on what's next for the music mecca. And, while rumors will abound, I predict it will be re-open in the next several months in a new location. If you haven't given yourself the opportunity to sample this room's special magic ... make sure you're front and center for the re-opening. It always presents the best New York City has to offer musically.

Another highlight of the evening was when singer-performer the Marvelous Tomaczek Bednerek sang "Happy Birthday" to friends in the audience. Ian Miller of " I MILLER INTERNATIONAL" also attended the event.

Dominic Chianese

Dominic Chianese is tough in real life, too. "The Sopranos' " Uncle Junior stopped midsong during his show at the Cutting Room to tell James Edstrom to stop taking pictures. Later, Chianese told the editor, "Sorry about that, baby," and let him snap away.

What a night it was, I'm telling you. I stopped by the Cutting Room to catch Soprano star Dominic "Uncle Jr." Chianese's show after having a few drinks already at Langans and Dina Lohan's party at Nino's and the drama never stopped. After a few more drinks with Cutting Room owner Steve Walter, I ventured into the back room where Dominic was performing for the likes of Parco PI star, Vinny Parco and a sell out crowd. I started to take pictures then all of a sudden Dominic raises his hand, say's "Stop the show" and points at me and say's "Could you please not take pictures" . The crowd looked like they wanted to kill me as I slithered out of the back room to the safety of my drink at the front bar. A while later after the show, Dominic came up to me and said, " Now we do photos". I was impressed as I put my Budweiser into my suit pocket and started taking pics of him and Parco. I told him how sorry I was for stopping the show and he was so kind and nice and just said, "Now you know" . Yes Dominic, I do !
