The enigmatic left winger recently celebrated the opening of Warren 77 in New York's TriBeCa neighborhood, and the New York Observer was there to observe it all.
Avery, a former intern for Vogue Magazine and connoisseur of all things fashion and New York fancy, is a partner in the bar -- the details of which were divulged in this New York Times piece from March.
For those wondering, here's how you greet your guests at your bar opening if you're Sean Avery ... From Observer.com:
"'How do you say 'cheers' in the Jewish language?' the flashy forward asked guests at the opening of his new Tribeca bar and restaurant Warren 77 on Friday, May 15.
'L'chaim!' the crowd replied.
Other highlights of the party, according to the article, included an acoustic set from Rangers goalie Henrik Lundquist. Hear that, Nikolai Khabibulin? Cover songs. Acoustic guitar. No wonder they call us the Second City.
'There ya go,' said Mr. Avery, who further encouraged attendees to "just keep buying drinks because I didn't open a f***ing bar for nothing."
