Benjamin Maisani’s New Bar Is Begging You To Scrawl ‘For A Good Time Call Anderson Cooper’

Benjamin Maisani, boyfriend to Anderson Cooper and co-owner of Eastern Bloc in New York’s East Village, is opening a new haunt in Alphabet City with partner Pablo Raimondi. It’s called Bedlam! “Expect a menagerie of taxidermy (North American animals e.g., moose, bear, ram, stag) as well as various other objects of fascination,” somebody in the know tells Michael Musto. At last, the bears in Anderson’s life won’t only be on television.
