Sopranos charity auction is drawing flies

Steven Van ZandtAccording to The New York Post (the business page, not Page Six), an eBay auction promising the winner a magical New Year's Eve with some of the secondary players on The Sopranos, isn't doing as well as hoped. The auction, done in conjunction with the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, promises a great evening watching the ball drop from the Hard Rock's marquee, and sharing the night with Stevie Van Zandt (pictured), Tony Sirico, Vincent Pastore, and others. The reserve for this "Wiseguy's New Year's Eve?" $100,000. I'm sure you're scrambling to eBay as we speak, right?

Anyway, only one bid was posted, and the writer of the article was suspicious of that bid. I'm suspicious of the whole thing, since I can't seem to find it anywhere on eBay. But I do agree with what the writer of the article, Peter Lauria, said about why the evening might not attract much interest, even if it was for charity. "Perhaps that's because you can get most of that, and even the company of actual mobsters in may cases, at the New Year's Eve bash at any restaurant in the five boroughs for a hundred bucks."
