Neither shaken nor stirred

One-time James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore was honored with a lifetime membership to a some club in Gramercy Park, and he was kind enough to let The New York Times tag along for the paper's "Night Out With..." series.

Unfortunately, the report contained nothing scandalous, and hardly anything even interesting. I enjoyed that the 81-year-old Moore ordered a club soda with lime, disappointing a bartender who wished to make Mr. Bond a martini shaken, not stirred.

I guess the best detail is that at some point early in the evening, firefighters rushed past Moore into the club on a false alarm. This would remind any true Bond fan of Moore's turn in A View to a Kill, when he and Tanya Roberts escape the burning San Francisco City Hall. The NYT writer lets this reference pass.

Not to mention the fact that the only Bond Girl he can get these days is Miss Piggy. Sucks to be this guy.

The Grey Lady should rename herself the Red Light District Working Lady for missing the Bond reference. How I loathe sloppy journalism.

(As an aside, the N to the B does an excellent job with its Bond references. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is my favorite: Bond’s memory of Theresa pushes him to constantly kill evil men and take down beautiful women.)
