The spoils of the Tavern on the Green dissolution debacle were on view yesterday, in preparation of the big three-day sale — in the Crystal Room of Tavern —set to begin 1 PM on Jan. 13.
I'm tempted to attend the auction and bid on something small, just to have a historical keepsake. The only thing holding me back is that most of the stuff in Tavern was, well, how should I put it?—such crap.
I mean, big white stag statues? Garish chandeliers, ludicrous animal-shaped topiary, a giant bear sculpture-aquarium, yards and yards of mirror and glass? What house would take in this vulgar junk? Maybe a samovar or a champagne bucket or something. But save the rest for Donald Trump's summer home. He'd appreciate it.
