If you were one of the people who thought, “Ugh, that’s the end of that place” when the Bossa Nova Civic Club got that write-up in The Times last month, well then you’re probably also the type that will say, “See, I told you so,” when you hear that, according to the Bushwick boite’s Facebook page, it got a visit from the FDNY and now must limit capacity at its sweat-drenched dance parties.
Cue the message that went out earlier this evening.
UNFORTUNATELY FDNY WAS NOT FEELING OUR VIBE AND WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO RESTRICT CAPACITY FOR A MINUTE UNTIL WE GET A 2ND EXIT IN PLACE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HANG OUT HERE THIS WEEKEND PLEASE COME EARLY AS WE DON’T ANTICIPATE WE CAN LEGALLY LET ANYONE IN AFTER MIDNIGHTISH. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. WE LOOK FORWARD TO RAVING WITH YOU FULL THROTTLE AGAIN IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.
Sorry to hear it, Bossa Nova, but what’s with the all-caps? Ease off on that Club-Mate!
