TOY STORY: A SpongeBob SquarePants figurine given a makeover by Karl Lagerfeld (think dark shades, a towering starched collar and fingerless gloves) attracted the highest bid at a recent Paris fundraiser for WWF, generating 1,000 euros, or about $1,500 at current exchange.
Numerous local personalities had autographed iconic objects linked to the cartoon character for the auction, which altogether raised 7,000 euros or about $11,000 at current exchange, including Inès de la Fressange, French singer Patrick Bruel and Greek TV presenter Nikos Aliagas.
This was the first time I had ever been to this tiny venue, which is probably one of the weirder spots in Salt Lake. Aptly named the Sponge Bar, it was SpongeBob themed: Stuffed SpongeBobs lined the shelves behind the bar, which didn’t actually serve any alcohol, plastic SpongeBob figurines, and SpongeBob pictures on the wall. There was only room for maybe thirty at most in the room, and the Sister Spit members sat at the bar or in the booths with their audience when they weren’t up at the mic.
