Lindsay Lohan Parties With the Old School at the Plumm

Last week we broke news that late gossip gadfly Baird Jones may not have wanted his memorial party thrown at the Plumm, a club he was helping fellow promoter Ivy Supersonic try to close down. Either way, the party went off without Supersonic unleashing a swarm of locusts, and our sister blog Daily Intel reports that Lindsay Lohan even made a surprise appearance in one of her first outings as a resident of midtown. Then again, we already knew LiLo’s taste in hang spots was a little … dated.

Lindsay Lohan Pays Fitting Tribute to Baird Jones

Baird Jones
On Friday we dropped by the Plumm for the memorial celebration for Baird Jones — the promoter, art collector, and gossip reporter who was a New York party-scene fixture for three decades before being found dead in his apartment last month. We expected a sea of eighties clubbers, fellow gossip writers, and open-bar-hoppers. We did not expect Lindsay Lohan. Yet as the aging crowd nursed its final free drink, the starlet arrived and installed herself on a couch in the back. It was surreal yet, in a way, the perfect homage to a man who devoted himself to celebrity gossip and often put random kooks in the same room as A-listers at the parties he threw.

Baird Jones Memorial Party at the Plumm Might Have Actually Pissed Him Off

Baird Jones
So on Friday night there will be a big, open-to-all bash to celebrate the memory of New York nightlife mainstay Baird Jones at the Plumm. The art collector, promoter, and gossip stringer died two weeks ago of a heart attack, and now everyone's invited to toast his memory. Except, according to Grub Street, the venue might not be one that Baird himself would have been too happy about. In fact, at times he even worked to shut the club down. Baird called New York to complain of some of Plumm owner Noel Ashman's poor business practices, including paying for underage models to visit the club and ripping off promoters. (He didn't complain about how Plumm publicists incessantly exaggerated celebrity items to gossip columnists, but we'll throw that in there because it's always annoyed us.) Baird's fellow promoter, Ivy Supersonic, says that she and the Webster Hall curator had a whole bunch of correspondence over the issue. Click on through to Grub for the whole story and Noel Ashman's response.

Baird Jones's Memorial Party to Be Held at Club He Secretly Tried to Close

Yesterday "Page Six" touted a farewell party for Baird “Bucky” Jones, perhaps the most ubiquitous person on the party circuit until he died of a heart attack last month. It will be at the Plumm, but there’s evidence the Yankee-capped art collector and gossip wouldn’t have wanted it that way. Last November Jones called to tell us that the Plumm’s owner, Noel Ashman, was ripping off promoters and paying wranglers thousands of dollars to bring underage models into the club (take this for what it's worth: Jones himself promoted parties that were “easy on I.D.”). At that time Baird was corresponding with Ivy Supersonic, who goes to court today for vandalizing the club after (according to her) Ashman stiffed her on $1,000 she was owed for promoting a Halloween party (Ashman has refuted that claim and others).

Calvin Klein and Donna Karan's Bentley Accident: Hilarious!

Donna Karan rear-ended Calvin Klein's Bentley while in her own Bentley. And get this, she was actually driving herself! Don Imus will have a co-host for the first time in his career when he returns to the air on December 3. Bryant Park charges the crew of Sex and the City $100,000 for each day they film there. (Also, the film's ending is supposedly not yet written.) NBC Universal Jeffrey Zucker bought Kitty Carlisle Hart's East 64th Street co-op for $12.3 million, "Page Six" reports, making us happy to see that they're catching up on two-month-old Daily Intel posts. More Secret Service guards have been hanging out on Barbara Bush's West Village block, perhaps because Janeane Garofalo gabbed on Bill Maher's show that she's Bush's neighbor. Downtown promoter Ivy Supersonic spent a night in jail after being accused of stealing $7,000 by the owner of the Plumm. 'Mocialite Kristian Laliberte hosted a party with BlackBook magazine for Carlos Campos at Upstairs in Soho.
