Sean Parker retains his party boy image, STK Midtown throws a party celebrating the grand opening of their new restaurant, a hangover cure-all is found, and some devastating news hits both the East Village and the Bronx.

1. Sean Parker celebrated his 32nd birthday at "Sleep No More" this past weekend. Ready to party with fire extinguisher in hand, Sean yelled "Get ready. Here comes my big exit!" then thanked the cast for their performance, gave a couple toasts, and was eventually persuaded to put the extinguisher down. Sure to say, it was a sight to see. [NY Post]

4. The FDA has approved Blowfish, a new hangover cure. The over-the-counter drug contains a mix of aspirin, caffeine, and antacids to combat the many symptoms of a hangover. Just dissolve the tablet in water, and in about 30 minutes, your symptoms should disappear! As of now, Blowfish is only available at Ricky's NYC stores and online at ForHangovers.com, but should be in Duane Reade's and other pharmacies soon. [NY Daily News]

5. Sadly, the owner of Joe's Bar passed away on Thanksgiving. The dive bar has been closed since, and as of now its future is not certain. Past employees could end up taking over ownership, but no one knows for sure. [Eater]

6. Early Sunday morning, a bouncer was shot and killed outside of The Pit Lounge. After breaking up a fight, 26-year old, Terrance Drayton, was accidentally shot by the man who had been thrown out of the bar earlier in the night. Sources say that the gunman meant to shoot the other bouncer, who threw him out, but either way, it was a rough morning for partons and workers at The Pit Lounge. [NY Post]
