It's Back -- Folks who remember the slightly seedy, always intimate Baby Bar on First Avenue will be happy to hear it's making a comeback. Mark Henriksen, the man who brought you Slick Rock Burrito, reopened the Baby Bar a few weeks ago in its old location across the street from the Davenport Hotel. They've been purveying the finest in brews and microbrews since opening and just got the okay from the state liquor board to sell the hard stuff in the very near future. Henriksen reports that old fans of the Baby Bar are happy to welcome this new incarnation, and that filling the place to capacity has been no problem. "It seats about 20, but during the grand opening I think we had about 35 people back there."





Where Is It? -- Don't panic, folks. If you go the stands looking for us on Jan. 2, only to find us (gulp) not there, it's because we're taking a week off. We're just giving ourselves a much-needed break from the turbo-charged pace and nonstop glamour of making newspapers. We'll be back on Jan. 9 with more hard-hitting news, scintillating arts coverage and sundry bits of gossip from our travels. In the meantime, why not savor our current double issue -- which you are right now this very minute holding in your hands -- like the delectable banquet of words that it is?





Speaking of Double Issues -- Because film bookings are such a last-minute affair, we weren't able to get confirmations for some of the films we suspect might be coming to town over the next few weeks. Call your closest cinema for up-to-the-minute movie information.





Night of the Divas -- We're happy to say a good time was had by all at Cyndi Lauper and Cher last week. A lot of the buzz working its way up and down the rows of the Arena during Cyndi Lauper's performance was of the "How does she do it?" variety: she looked better in 2002 than she did when she first came onto the scene in the early '80s. Gone were the rubber bracelets around her ankles and the orange hair. In their place was a new, mature Cyndi, but still with enough energy to dazzle the filled-to-capacity crowd. By the time Cher made it to the stage, the crowd was sufficiently worked up to appreciate her myriad costume changes, dozens of wigs and a big-screen retrospective of her TV and movie appearances, from Mask to David Letterman.
