SNAP Bar Opens in Meatpacking District

Poison Ivy trekked to the Meatpacking district Wednesday night for the soft opening of the Steve Lewis-designed, sports-themed SNAP bar and lounge (Sports Nightlife and Pastime).

The brains behind the bar - Matthew Isaacs, Justin McManus, Jordan Harris, Danny A. and Jed Stiller - left no stitch unsewn, dishing out plushy bar stools to mirror basketballs and hiring "ball girls" to serve drinks in vintage baseball uniforms.

DJ Phresh and NFL great Larry Johnson manned the turntables during the launch, while select media and friends were treated to free cocktails and pub-style hor d'oeuvres.

SNAP will officially open its doors to the public November 1.

Justin Timberlake Cheated with Olivia Munn

Us Weekly is reporting that Justin Timberlake cheated on long-time girlfriend Jessica Biel last month with TV personality Olivia Munn during a three-night romp in NYC.

The mag says:
After exchanging numbers, JT "started chasing Munn immediately." Munn resisted his advances, telling him it was a no-go if he was still with Biel, 28. But Timberlake "has been telling people it’s over with Jessica, even though "the reality is he's just doing it behind her back."

Believing he had left Biel and that her relationship with Timberlake might develop into something serious, Munn took him to her hotel, the Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC, Sept. 27 and 28, where "they were openly affectionate."

The insider tells Us that the two "had amazing sex" that night.
While we're surprised saddened to hear the news, we hope Biel realizes she's got a snake in her yard!
