Roger Stone will make his first New York appearance since being graced at Boozy Bash


You can’t hold back a good man. Or Roger Stone, apparently.

The notorious dirty tricks artist was convicted in 2019 of obstructing Congress in its investigation of then-President Trump, only to have Trump commute his sentence in 2020.

Stone is now set to make her first public appearance in New York since the brouhaha.

Page Six learns that former “Twinks for Trump” noisemaker Lucian Wintrich and the New York Young Republican Club are throwing a joint party to welcome Stone — who is in Florida — back to the Big Apple.

We’re told he’s going to teach the revelers Richard Nixon’s secret martini recipe. (Lobbyist and political consultant Stone’s first job in politics was in the Nixon campaign in 1972, and he infamously has a huge tattoo of the disgraced president’s face on his back.)

Meanwhile, we hear there will also be suitably nasty diversions, including a “Russia vs. Ukraine Burlesque” and DJs including one by the name of Chinese Spy Balloon.

Apparently the bash was already started from a location after hearing about the entertainment, and moved to another location down the block.

There’s also a slew of right-wing young stars from various podcasts, YouTube channels and FBI investigations on the guest list, we hear.

It looks like Stone is ready to return to the scene. Local reports say Trump is set to deliver a speech in Fort Myers, Florida in April, and Stone will be the warm-up act.

He also appears to have made the rounds on right-wing podcasts, giving his thoughts on a potential matchup in 2024 between his own Governor Ron DeSantis and his longtime friend Trump.
