The Howard Stern Show personality “Ronnie the Limo Driver,” a frequent Rick’s Cabaret & Steakhouse/New York visitor, will host the party and greet guests Wednesday, October 16th. “We always make a big deal of our anniversary because it is truly something to celebrate,” says Shaun Kevlin, general manager of the club at 50 West 33rd Street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway, across from the Empire State Building and down the street from Madison Square Garden.

Rick’s Cabaret & Steakhouse/New York opened in the fall of 2005 and quickly established a reputation as the top club in the city for businessmen, professionals, athletes and couples, with a red carpet entry hall, plush seating, Zagat-rated steakhouse restaurant (now with a new dinner menu by Chef Jose Joey Lopez), roof top smoking deck and gorgeous entertainers. Playboy.com calls it the “#1 strip club in New York City” and it is frequently mentioned in newspapers and on radio and television programs.

Biron was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the first round (16th overall) in the 1995 Entry Draft. He reached his peak as a starter with the Sabres during the 2001-02 season. He played 72 games that year, garnering a 31-28-10 record with a .915 save percentage and a 2.22 goals against average. Biron would also play for the Flyers and the Islanders before being signed as a free agent by the Rangers on July 1, 2010. He made 24 saves in his first start as a Ranger, winning 2-1 in overtime over the Maple Leafs in Toronto on October 21, 2010. Biron has a career record of 230-191 with 25 ties, 27 overtime losses, a .910 save percentage, and 2.62 goals against average. 22 of his 230 career wins have come with the Rangers (22-15-3). According to the NY Post’s Larry Brooks , “if Biron clears waivers and is assigned to the Wolf Pack, his cap hit would be $375,000, while Ashams would be $75,000. Brooks continues, “If the Rangers call up Cam Talbot from the Wolf Pack to replace Biron, the cap hit would be $562,500, saving the team a pro-rated $362,500.” Meanwhile, Nash’s head injury issues are lingering, which led to the Rangers placing the power forward on injured reserve. According to Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News , the Rangers wanted to add two forwards to the lineup right away. By placing Nash on injured reserve, this is possible. A player would have to remain ineligible to play for seven days. After that, if the player is healthy, they can return. Also, injured reserve can also be retroactive to the day Nash was injured. If the Rangers did so, Nash would be eligible to come off injured reserve on Wednesday.

14, 2013, 4:38 PM EST By Sara Morrison TheWrap Capital New York is using its Politico money to expand its ranks: Jim Windolf, Glynnis MacNicol andAJoanna Molloy have been hired to write weekly reported columns for the publication when it re-launches in November. The three have some impressive experience under their belts: Windolf is a contributing editor to “Vanity Fair” and senior editor at “M;” he’s also written for the New York Observer and will continue to teach at Wesleyan University. MacNicol co-founded The Li.st with Rachel Sklar and has worked for Business Insider and Mediaite. She also wrote a weekly review/recap of “The Newsroom” for Capital New York over the summer. Also read: Politico Buys Capital New York, Plans to Expand And Joanna Molloy wrote “New York Daily News'” longtime gossip column “Rush and Molloy” until 2010. For the past three years, she’s written a column for NYDN about city affairs. The columns will be New York affairs-centric, as the Huffington Post first reported . Capital editor Tom McGeveran told TheWrap that he wants “columns speak for themselves in specific” when they debut sometime in the fall (their exact start dates and Capital New York’s relaunch are still being worked out, he said). All three, he added, will continue with their other projects while writing for Capital. “I’d expect most of the columnists to have a lot of irons in the fire,” he said. Don’t expect the three to be Capital New York’s only columnists, either. “There are more columnists still to be announced as we work out details,” McGeveran said. Related stories from TheWrap:
