Another One Bites The Dust

Written by

It seems the curse of the closing restaurants has again struck Morningside, and this time, under- (and over-) age drinkers university-wide will be feeling the pain.  According to a notice spotted this morning at La Negrita, Bwog’s go-to boozerie will shut its doors “indefinitely” next Saturday, the 11th of April. While they couldn’t be reached for comment, Bwog would find it totally unsurprising if this tragedy turned out to be the fault of the big R.

Regardless, should you need to drown your sorrow in liquor, well, La Negrita will be there for you one last time, as they’re hosting “‘Drink us Dry'” specials on Friday (the 10th) and the fateful Saturday.

  2. you know,  

    as annoying as the poster above me is, i have to agree.

    FUCK.

  3. next thing you know  

    HamDel will be gone...

  4. same

    normally i would complain about the excessive "nooooo," but i think it just about sums up how i feel about this.

    negrita is one of the only bars near campus with character, why the fuck is it closing?!

  5. what is  

    Negrita and why have I never heard of it

  6. tonight  

    Come see Orchesis tonight and tomorrow at 8pm in Roone Arledge!

  7. Bwog  

    Your Top Stories headline for this post is excellente and is much better than the actual headline. I won't blog-judge you if you change it.

  8. FUCK

    I'm sure this isn't the only Morningside Heights bar that opens at like, noon. Probably the best one, though...

  9. ignorant  

    what is "the big R" ?

  10. little to eager for  

    your "go-to" bar, Bwog. Next Saturday is the 4th, Negrita is closing in two weeks.

  12. Hmm  

    I recently read that "Another One Bites the Dust" plays at 100 beats per minute, which means it can be used to time CPR chest compressions perfectly.

    Now the song just seems creepy.

  13. The King of Spain

    Aw fuck it all.

  14. bar sucks

    More likely it was the result of poor management. The place didn't have liquor half the time becuase it didn't pay its suppliers.

  15. ...

    there's always the cougariffic ding dong lounge!

  16. clicker

    bwog, are you sure? according to their website ( http://www.lanegritanyc.com/ ), everything "is functioning normally".

  17. This is  

    a fucking tragedy, but I'm actually not that surprised. These past few weekends the place has gone dead before 1am. I guess it was just a matter of time...

  18. I expect  

    realtime housing data, updated every 3 minutes, starting 9:30:01 AM DST

  19. HAIKU  

    oh la negrita
    with you i worshipped bacchus
    1020? i weep.

  20. any idea  

    when housing will shut the heat off?

    i'm sweating my ass off with my heat on at full blast in 50 degree weather. and because columbia's housing is so awesome, one of my windows doesn't open. if they're complaining about finances being tight, why don't they save some by shutting the damn radiators off...

  21. yes

    it's you fucking suburban people moving into the city that cause these stores to close. rents go up because you morons can't stay in Hartford oh Washington State, so places can't afford it. NYC used to be last place in the country to resist your bland, mass-produced liberalism, your wonderbread interests in yogurt and cappuccino, and everything else. GO HOME already. Im sick of seeing this city destroyed by narcissistic outsiders. That means you too, julie weiner.

    • dear  

      go fuck yourself. Rant about "suburbanites" on Gothamist with the other 7 people who still think that the reason New York City is so interesting is because no one EVER comes and leaves. Let us talk about our under-age drinking woes in peace.

    Got raided last night. hit with a $10,000 fine. As a result, they are going to be slightly tougher with IDs lately.
