PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.
wyclef-for-haiti.jpgWyclef Jean, he who recently celebrated his birthday by posing in his skivvies next to his Ducati, will soon be giving New Yorkers something it so desperately needs: a celebrity-endorsed restaurant. The singer told the folks over at Power 105.1 that "in six to nine months, I will be opening my own place in New York City...I feel that we can use a spot in New York that has culture...where it's DJ culture, it's band culture, it's lounge culture, it's vibe." We'll give you a second to stop laughing. Are you done? Okay, great. So you'll never guess what this vibin' lounge/band/DJ culture spot will be called: The Refugee Lounge.

Well, assuming the name is a nod to his band (and not, you know, the state of many citizens of his native Haiti), we have a few menu ideas:

-"Killing Me Soft-(Boiled Eggs)"
-"Fu-Gee-La(sagne)"
-"The Sweetest Thing (Chocolate Lava Cake)"
-"Strumming My Pain With His (Chicken) Fingers"
-"Ready Or Not (Twice Baked Potato)"
-"No Woman, No Fry (Baked Chicken)"
-"Gonna Find You And Take It Slow (Cooked Braised Ribs)"
"Bless You If You Represent the Fu(silli with Grilled Chicken and Pesto Cream Sauce)"

We'll even waive our consultation fee.
