The closing of the famous Central Park eatery Tavern On The Green on December 31st, 2009 was a sad moment for New Yorkers. This iconic restaurant which was a favorite of screen star Grace Kelly as well as John Lennon of the Beatles was a New York jewel for over seventy five years. Yet the closing isn’t bad news for everyone. Meet Theodore “Red” Skair owner and operator of Tavern On The Groin, a midtown gentleman’s club. “Yeah, well those jerks over at Tavern On The Green kept on us with an army of lawyers because of our name. We’re a high class place, we’re not some clip joint. We have top flight entertainment, exciting lunch special, and the hottest women allowable by law. Those bastards over at Tavern On the Green thought they had us beat, well look who’s standin’  Tavern On The Groin, that’s who. Be sure to visit our Diamond Pole Room.”
