Don't expect to see Sean Avery disappear from sight anytime soon. The notoriously temperamental hockey player's stint as a Vogue intern last summer may still become the basis of a movie. (The working title is Puckface.) And he'll be adding restaurateur to his resume soon, too. He's teamed up with Beatrice Inn co-owner Matt Abramcyk and former art dealer Chris Miller to open a new restaurant and bar called Warren 77. [NYT]
