    1. Is Kate Moss back to her old ways? [PageSix]

    Time for another trip to rehab?

    "Witnesses said Moss showed up late for the YSL bash at Le Trianon on Monday. She appeared unsteady as she sauntered up to the front of the room near the stage, where a rock band performed. "She danced so hard that she had to be helped up several times by security," said a witness. "She went a little crazy." Paris fashion week insiders were still snickering about Moss's boozy behavior days later, after she walked the runway in the Louis Vuitton show smoking a cigarette."

    The after-party was originally supposed to take place at the Soho Grand but a water main-break left the room covered in two inches of water. Luckily the Tribeca Grand was quick to respond by converting its lobby into a lounge.

    3. Naked Cowboy loses out out the Naked Cowgirl. [Huffington Post]

    Robert Burck better known as the Naked Cowboy sued Sandy Kane, the Naked Cowgirl, for a 5,000 franchise fee for allegedly infringing on his "Naked Cowboy" brand. Instead of collecting the fee, Burck agreed to settle the lawsuit for free as long as Kane remained silent about the deal.

    Angelo Sosa, a contestant on Top Chef All Star's, has just opened up his new restaurant "Social Eatz" on 53rd street where you can get a variety of burger'z, taco'z, soup'z and sald'z.

    Two alums of the Cipriaini empire, Andree El Garrachy and Franceshini, are the chefs at the new "Bar Italia Madison" which offers patrons gluten-free Italian options.

    The folks of "9" in Hell's Kitchen opened up "Pier 9" this past Monday which offers an environment of re-purposed sails and driftwood and a menu full of varied seafood options.

    "Tenpenny" at the Gotham Hotel aims at bringing back the oyster-and-martini lunches of New York past.

    The sister-brother team of Naama and Assaf Tamir have traded in their day jobs at Employees Only and Macao Trading Company in order to open up the new restaurant "Lighthouse". Also joining this venture is Chef Nicholas Cox formerly of La Esquina.

    "The space formerly housed "a drug-infused Dominican club," said Naama. "An upstairs neighbor told us the music was so loud her dishes used to rattle. It was a totally illegal operation; we found gas tanks in the basement so they were running the place off of generators. I can't imagine what was going on here."

    7. The best way to celebrate the Allman Brothers Band's triumphant return to NYC is with the All-Allman's Happy Hour. [Eater] The Fatty Crab on the Upper West Side will be serving a special All-Allman's Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 4pm to 7pm from now until March 22.
