Now Andre Balazs is Just Fucking With Us

HotelChatter checked out a launch party for the den of sin to be known as the William Beaver House, and, uh, well:

At the preview lunch, André and co had 4 Hanover Street (essentially rented promo space) tricked out to look like the proposed lobby/lounge of the William Beaver House. Modelesque waitresses flitted about serving cocktails in yellow uniforms--it appears yellow is the project's signature color. The crowd was treated to a buffet-style lunch which was followed by a short speech by André. Actually it wasn't a speech. Instead, he played a Roger Rabbit-style movie that consisted solely of him talking to an animated black beaver. (We kid you not. If you think we are making it up, we will gladly upload the .mov from the usb tchotchke they gave us.)

Um, yes please.
