Mikey Palms, co-owner of the now-defunct Southpaw, just got married on Saturday night to Nicole Gunther, a source tells us. But there’s more: “I was at Southpaw’s final night on Monday and was informed by someone there that he’s going to be a father soon. So it seems that Southpaw’s transformation into a child-activity center will benefit him, surely.”
Surely? Maybe. It’s true that the Southpaw space will be subletted starting next month to New York Kids Club, an “enrichment center” with kids classes, day camps, birthday celebrations, and even rock climbing, according to some reports. The announcement led the New Yorker to pronounce Park Slope “dead.”
But Palms said he was “over” Park Slope and eager to focus his efforts on another music venue, Public Assembly in Williamsburg. So they may not be so interested in hanging out in Park Slope after all… though if they did, maybe they’ll get to skip the line and get into the kids club free?
Congrats to the happy couple–now go buy them that Cuisinart® PowerEdge™ 700 Blender off their Bed Bath & Beyond registry.
