VICTOR a loser at crobar?

Heard from Victor Calderone (via a mutual friend) last night that he is OUT at Crobar. Crobar will be doing NO MORE afterhours parties on Saturday nights. They told Victor that there are issues with the city and the community board and neighbors about staying open after hours.

I'm not entirely sure I believe this explanation, for reasons including the fact that there are no neighbors, at least none I'm aware of; Crobar's in a totally industrial/art gallery neighborhood. It's possible that they lied to him for whatever reason.

If they really are having trouble with the city over afterhours, that bodes ill for Alegria as well.

But definitely, Victor is out of there as of immediately.

Another one bites the dust. It's fascinating, in a rubbernecking-car-wreck sort of way, to watch how mismanaged this business is getting.
