Sidney Torres IV, the former trash stallion who nows has his hands in a big Bayou St. John development and in eradicating French Quarter crime, might soon be in the gay bar business. Torres announced he'd be among the ones bidding on the bankrupt French Quarter gay club Oz in a planned July 22 auction, according to NOLA.com.
If he wins Torres plans to continue to operate the club as Oz, but will make minor improvements to the space. You might even see Mr. Torres up on the bar in a thong — he's just that committed.
"I can tell you one thing: When I buy something, I'm committed to it," Torres said. "If the numbers don't work, I will get in there and work the bar myself."· SDT Waste & Debris to be acquired by IESI Corp. [NOLA.com]
