Prospective owners not (exactly) naming hotel after Lorje

The prospective owners of a Riversdale watering hole say they're serious about changing the name of the Barry Hotel to Lorje Place, but insist they are not naming it after city councillor Pat Lorje - at least, not exactly.

Meanwhile, Lorje has a lawyer on the case, in an effort to halt what she considers a tasteless joke and theft of her name.

"I've got a partner, her name is Lorraine Sadler, and we tossed names around like 'Larry's Place,' which is my name, or 'Lorraine's Place,' " said Larry Bozek of L & L Holdings in an interview with the StarPhoenix Tuesday.
