Donnie Wahlberg and Brothers to Open New Restaurant

Donnie, along with his brothers, Mark and Paul are opening a new restaurant in the Boston area called Wahlburger's. Here is an article from the Democrat and Chronicle:
Mark and Donnie Wahlberg make licensing deal with Tom Wahl's

Donnie and Mark Wahlberg have licensed the Wahlburger name from Tom Wahl's to open a burger joint in the Boston area.

The brothers, which also own other restaurants, do not have plans at this time to serve a burger with the name but plan to name the eatery Wahlburgers Restaurant.

Tom Wahl's owns the federal trademark rights to the Wahlburger name, so the restaurant group that includes the Wahlberg brothers, which also includes Paul, a chef.

“It’s a fun thing, out of the blue, to be contacted by a group surrounded by a Hollywood actor (like Mark Wahlberg)," said Keith Herman, vice president of Tom Wahl's. "He is well respected out there, it is kind of fun.”

Mark Wahlberg started his career as a rapper under the name Marky Mark, and Donnie Wahlberg is a member of the '80s sensation New Kids on the Block.

The two developed careers in acting, Mark as as star of Boogie Nights and more recently gathering acclaim as producer and actor in The Fighter and on the HBO show Entourage. Donnie Wahlberg was in The Sixth Sense and is now has earned critical praise for his role on the CBS show Blue Bloods opposite Tom Selleck.

Herman would not disclose the amount of the agreement, but noted that “it’s been a plus. the more restaurants they open up, the more opportunity we have from it financially.”


Here is a news story from 13WHAM about getting permission to use the name:

Donnie's Birthday Party Rescheduled for September 3rd

Donnie had to reschedule his birthday party in Virginia Beach due to Hurricane Irene. Here some Twitter updates from Donnie:

IMPORTANT- The threat of Hurricane Irene hitting VA Saturday has forced me to move my Party to next Saturday- 9/3- Your safety comes first!

Sorry for the inconvenience but I'll be more sorry if you all have to travel in, at worst a hurricane, at best horrible storms!

Contact @worldofjohnny for any questions & info! If its any consolation- I'm losing my first 3 day weekend in a year to move the party! :(

PS- all of the airlines are offering no change fees for flight changes because of the weather!! #justsaying!

The good news is... This gives me an extra week to make even more plans for surprises for Virginia Beach!

London Free Press: New Kid says it's not over

Here is an article from the London Free Press hinting about possible future plans for NKOTBSB

The boy band fans were sounding sad or sexy — or both — on Twitter.com and other social media over the apparent end of a supergroup on Sunday afternoon.

Maybe they should have been saying it ain't over till it's over.

Hours before the combined forces of NKOTBSB — The New Kids on The Block and The Backstreet Boys — were to play the final date of the 2011 tour at the John Labatt Centre on Sunday, the fans were tweeting in pain at saying goodbye or hot hot hot anticipation of the final show.

"Going through #NKOTBSB withdrawl again ;( blahkkk i wana go backkk!!!," tweeted @cassceccs, who — like many fans — saw Sunday's date at the downtown London arena as the end of a sweet and beautiful thing.

There were other fans, like @glovess22, who had tickets for the London show — and knew exactly what they wanted.

"#nkotbsb for the second time tonight! @nickcarter can't wait to see you and your sexiness ;)," that fan said, expressing feelings for BSB's Carter.

The actual NKOTBSB truth is out there. There are already rumours the supergroup will puts it nine-man lineup together again for a European tour.

New Kids on The Block lead singer Jordan Knight was looking well past Sunday's show in a pre-concert interview backstage.

"You'll definitely see us again, working together," Knight said Sunday of teaming again with BSB.

Asked about a European tour being next on the NKOTBSB playbook, he laughed for a moment.

"We're talking about it," Knight said seriously. Then he paused before adding, "If you ask me, 'see you in Europe,' " he said with the last four words in a much quieter, mock-secretive voice.

Sounds like a tweet, a backstage visitor suggested to Knight, who smiled again.

Only one question then — how long until an #nkotbsb tweet makes it official?
