Susan Sarandon eyeing Boston for Ping-Pong parlor?
Actress Susan Sarandon and her partners in SPiN Galactic, a series of popular Ping-Pong parlors, are indeed considering opening a location in Boston. But they’re looking at options all over the world. It was reported Wednesday that Sarandon and fellow investors Franck Raharinosy, Andrew Gordon, and the actress’s boyfriend, Jonathan Bricklin , want to open one of their Ping-Pong clubs in South Boston. (They currently have locations in New York, Toronto, Milwaukee, and LA.) A source close to Sarandon told us “SPiN Boston is a top priority, but the executive team is still looking for the right space. They absolutely love the city.” SPiN spokeswoman Cassie Mead declined to talk to us, perhaps because she was unhappy with the Boston Herald’s spin on the story, suggesting the Boston site location is a done deal. “What I like most about my job is when reporters quote me but leave off the end when I say ‘but this story is not true’,” Mead tweeted Wednesday.
