Jimmy Fallon

Ruins Local Haunt

8/29/2007 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pete's Tavern near Gramercy Park used to be the local joint of New York local joints, exactly the kind of place everyone wants in their neighborhood for a cold pint and warm banter. At least it was, until Jimmy Fallon decided to pimp it out.

Jimmy Fallon
Okay, that's an exaggeration. But still, in a new campaign for NYC & Co., the New York tourist organization, Fallon gives up Pete's address, 129 E. 18th Street, and advises people -- tourists?! -- "Tell them Jimmy sent you." So much for that.

Some edification is supplied by Julianne Moore, who in her spot suggests visitors always keep their baby carriages, and by Robert De Niro, who breaks down what TriBeCa stands for (Triangle Below Canal, if you must know).

Awesome! I'll go when I get back to NYC. I'm sure the business wouldn't mind MORE CUSTOMERS. And young girls with money who want to get drunk.

Pete's Tavern has been around since 1864. I doubt it needs promotion.

I'm sure the business won't be crying when they look at their financial records. You're a business - you want customers - Economics 101.

Why would you give out a celebrities house adress? That should be against one of his rights.
