It looks like the Penis Festivals and the Hot Pot Parties are over at the Matsuri restaurant inside the Maritime Hotel.

Guest of a Guest reports that both Matsuri and the Hiro Ballroom at the hotel are closing at the end of March. And in their place will be two new spots from Marc Packer, who helped launched two of NYC's hottest nightclubs, Lavo and Tao.

While Hiro and Matsuri were beloved places in their own right (and not just because of penis worshipping), we're guessing they just could not compete with the PH.D, the nightclub at the bumpin' Dream Downtown.

The Penis Festival usually happens during the first week of April. Maybe Matsuri will celebrate a week early. After all, what could be better than a final send-off surrounded by penii?
