Even if you’re a huge NBA star, you still may get blocked in Hollywood … all for wearing a hoodie.
If you know anything about fancy LA eateries, then you know Katana is one of the top sushi spots in the city. Hence why Anthony Davis and a few of his New Orleans Pelican teammates stopped by for a late-night snack after playing the Lakers. Unfortunately, no one got to try the White Lotus Roll because the security at the door wouldn’t let Davis in wearing his Pelicans hoodie.
A witness told Page Six, “Davis was pleading with the doorman, saying, ‘Me and my teammates just want to get something to eat.’ He said he couldn’t take off the hoodie because he was wearing a sleeveless T-shirt underneath. Davis even offered to spend a fortune to rent the private room, but the doorman said, ‘No, you can’t come in wearing a hoodie.’ So Davis got back in his SUV and left, and only then did the restaurant manager come running out, freaking out at the doorman.”
Since Davis isn’t from LA, he may not have know about the strict dress code. If you check out Katana’s website though, it states:
Dress: Upscale Casual
We kindly ask that our guests abide by the Upscale Casual dress code at Katana. The following items are not permitted in the restaurants:
– Athletic Tops & T-Shirts
– Flip Flops (Including Rubber & Plastic Thongs)
The dress code is strictly enforced and management reserves the right to refuse service to patrons who are inappropriately dressed.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
