Good news, Seinfeld fans: There’s now a designated spot where it is socially acceptable to drape yourself in velvet — while drinking.

In Melbourne, Australia, a new bar opened on New Year’s Eve that is basically a monument to the show’s (arguably) lovable idiot, George Costanza.

The joint, which is bluntly named George’s Bar, is an anything-but-subtle homage to the classic sitcom character, with Constanza’s face lining the walls and watching over you as you indulge in snacks and boozy beverages named after his most memorable moments.

If, for example, you’ve always wanted to pretend you’re an architect (/marine biologist/importer-exporter/latex salesman), the double cheese “Art Vandelay” toastie may just be for you.

Or if you, like George, come from a long line of quitters, that tomato, mozzarella, and pesto sandwich has your name on it.

On the beverage side, you can get yourself one of their specialty cocktails like the “Marisa Tomei” (George’s inexplicable-but-fleeting secret lover) or the “Hand Model” (his equally short-lived career path).

And, of course, no authentic Constanza-themed bar would be complete without a game of Frogger — just be sure not to unplug it and lose your high score.

Jason Alexander himself even got in on the buzz around the place, Tweeting his delight that his character is finally getting the recognition that the Emmys always overlooked.

There’s no indication of whether Ring Dings and Pepsi will make an appearance on their menu, but in the words of George, they would certainly be the hit of the party if they do.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
