Though Postcrypt opens its first show of the semester this weekend, the coffeehouse continues to struggle to stay up and running in the face an endless stream of administrative hurdles.
After meeting with Columbia administrators on Tuesday, Postcrypt members inform us that they will not be serving alcohol this or next weekend, since they failed to meet the Liquor Authority’s shorter and stricter application deadline. While dry, the coffeehouse will not be required to staff an alcohol proctor, though it will still be required to staff a security guard, following a decision made by the Chaplain to have a security guard at all evening events in St. Paul’s Chapel – an additional cost which would drain both Postcrypt and Security Fund resources. Once Postcrypt does start serving alcohol again, they will need to have two proctors – one to give wristbands and monitor the bar and another to watch the rest of the tiny area. (more…)

Listen, new owners of 999 (at least, that’s what we think it’s called), formerly La Negrita: when New York Magazine names you “The Happening Bar” in the neighborhood, you give thanks and go about doing the things that, you know, won you the distinction in the first place. Or you could go ahead and change the name, we suppose. Photo evidence at right, and a look at their new bizarrely Anglo (Steak and Kidney Pie?) “Pub Grub” menu after the jump. (more…)
