From The New York Shitty Inbox: Curtain Call For Club Exit?

Dear miss heather,

I live next door to club exit, last week there was a huge fight that left at least one bleeding in the middle of greenpoint ave. Today I noticed this sign on the doors as I was walking home. They finally lost their liquor license?

I have detected a lot of buzz about this online. I have been meaning to do some poking around to learn what happened but simply have not had time. Although I certainly would not rule out N’s liquor license theory (this club has long been a public nuisance and the location of many a violent altercation) fact of the matter is I honestly do not know. If anyone out there is “in the know”, please share via comments.* Inquiring minds want to know!

UPDATE, January 9, 2010: B writes;

Miss Heather,

I would not pop the champagne corks regarding “Club Exit Bites The Dust” because they are applying for a liquor license renewal (Alteration) at Community Board 1 on January 12 6:30 p.m. They are listed at number 13 on the Liquor License Renewals List.  See CB1 Agenda attachment…

Anyone wishing to comment for or against this renewal should attend the meeting and arrive early—at least by 6 p.m.—to sign up and speak your mind. I would also suggest you call or email CB1 with your opinions or questions.

After all, it is your  Community Board.

UPDATE, January 9, 6:19 p.m.: I have heard via the Greenpoint grapevine that Club Exit was shut down for drug activity. They are going to remodel and reopen (hence the license hearing) as a “new club”. I write “new” because this establishment will be under the same ownership.

*Or you can send me an email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will be kept confidential.

Grammatical error aside, I really like the way this person thinks. The arrow pointing to the offender’s residence is an inspired touch.

You know the budget cuts at MTA are beginning to hurt when you see something like this (which hails from Manhattan Avenue and Dupont Street). Then again, I suppose a Sharpie marker and address labels filched from the United States Postal Service are more cost effective than printing out a new schedule.

This evening I will conclude today’s truncated postage with the following three lovelies. Enjoy!

Now, if you don’t mind I am off for an evening of birthday merrymaking and hanging out with good friends. I have not done jackshit all day— and you know what? It was damned nice!

See you tomorrow.
