Howard At Scott Greenstein's Son's Bar Mitzvah. 02/11/08. 6:25am
Howard said on Saturday night he went to Scott Greenstein's son's bar mitzvah. He said that they held it at the museum of natural history and really made a big deal out of it. He said it was more like Scott's night, not even his son's. Gary said they were going to try and rent out that room for Howard's birthday one year but it was $20,000 just to rent out the room.
Howard said that they have a big room there and there weren't any dinosaurs or anything up there. Artie said that's a pretty special thing for him to do for his kid.
Howard thought that Scott's salary was in the paper. Artie said he thinks that he read about it and it was like $700,000 per year. Howard said he thought that's what it was about and he thought about the kind of money he was spending on this thing. He rented out that room and he had Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes there performing. He figured he had to spend about 20 grand on them too. Then he was leaving and he saw this big black guy calling his name when he was leaving. Then he realized that it was LL Cool J. He was also at the party as a performer. Robin didn't believe that but Howard said he was pretty sure that's who it was. He wasn't positive though. Howard said that he and Beth were leaving before LL did his thing though.
Howard said that he wasn't even going to go to this bar mitzvah but Scott called Beth and told her he wanted them to be there. When he got there he was seated at the same table as Bam Margera. He had no idea why he was there but the guys heard that Scott likes Bam because he's way into Swedish music like Scott is.
Howard said that Scott's wife was wearing a nice dress that Beth told him was $28,000. Howard said that he thought that Scott was in the mob or something. He said that $700,000 isn't a lot of money to be making if you're living in New York. He was trying to figure out how he can afford that stuff.
Gary said that Scott used to own a movie company but he sold it. It was a major film company that made some hit movies. Howard said that he didn't know that.
Howard said that Scott is into the whole star trip and he's got a godfather for his son. He said that he got Little Steven to be his son's godfather, even though there are no godfathers in the Jewish religion. Howard said that Little Steven even got up at one point and said a few words. He's actually involved with the kid's life like he's supposed to. He said that he's not sure if Scott has any real friends or just the celebrities.
Howard said that Tony Hawk was at the party and he was another one of those guys who can't possibly be friends with Scott. Howard said he was at the table with Ross Zapin, Bam, some NASCAR guy whose name he didn't know. He said that he really wasn't at the right table. He said he should have been at the table with Mel Karmazin.
Howard was also complaining about the music and the constant pounding. He said that he night actually turned out to be really nice. He said that he had a few vodka and cranberry drinks and he was so wasted he was talking about everyone and being too loud with his comments. He said Beth had to drag him out because of what he was saying. Howard said they had a really nice time there though.
