Friends, if you are debating where to go tonight, consider that this Saturday might be Campo’s last. After hearing rumors that Campo is going to be shut down, Bwog called the restaurant for comment. The gentleman who picked up the phone was emphatic that the restaurant isn’t going anywhere, but continued, “We are simply modifying our late night arrangements.”
It turns out that Michael Wetherbee, the man who coordinates Campo’s late night scene, is “moving on to different opportunities.” We also spoke to Rashad, another manager at Campo, who said that due to Mike’s absence, “We don’t have anyone to coordinate late night the way it has been.” This means that right now, they are unsure whether or not the college bar scene will die down completely in the future or if they will hire someone to pick up where Mike left off.
There will be a “last night hurrah” for Mike at the bar tonight, so go out there and make some memories!
@Anonymous thank god
@ugh if this makes 1020 even more crowded i’m gonna cut someone
@Anonymous There goes my free steak dinners and endless drinks. I’ll miss you Mr. Wetherbee ;)
@Eliza We’re deleting comments on this post that make accusations about Campo or Michael Wetherbee and that suggest places to get fakes/bars that don’t card. Trying to have the War on Fun die peacefully.
@hmm EC, Heights or……..
@naughty boy does that mean Laura will have to pay her bill? hahahah
@irreplaceable Campo can’t be replaced. It’s a close knit family and that no bar can offer. Michael we will miss you and all you have done to make this place so beloved
@Perhaps Columbians will finally realize that there’s much better nightlife beyond Morningside. It’s time to explore what downtown Manhattan has to offer! And trust me, you can always find places that don’t card. Otherwise, you might now consider getting that fake…
@Anonymous campo carded though
@question how does one find places that don’t card?
@GASP Will Columbia students actually have to venture out into scary NYC, past 3 blocks away from their cozy dorms, possibly take a SUBWAY with other people, to head … dare I say it … DOWNTOWN ?!?!?!? This is a catastrophy! Why isn’t this news as big as the drug bust or sex scandal? It clearly affects the student body more …
(disclaimer: sarcasm used heavily above)
@The commenter below AMEN TO THAT!
@Anonymous I couldn’t pick up on that sarcasm.
@lame why are you so angry people like a bar?
@Your spelling is a catastrophe.
@OH NO Isn’t it an absolute travesty that Columbians like to patronize their pathetic, local dive bars? We live in New York Fucking City, right? So Columbians should be spending every night heading all over the city so that they can go to cooler, more obscure bars? Really, if you’re not going to drink somewhere that takes at least 20 minutes to get to, you should probably just transfer to Dartmouth, you fucking sheep.
(Disclaimer: I am not actually an NYU douche, so there’s sarcasm used above.)
@No... They’ll just go to 1020.
@This is the real disaster. Because 1020 needs hordes of freshmen trying to dance.
Sarcasm used above.
@Anonymous have to say that I’m pretty upset about this.
@WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK
