The other shoe has dropped

Well, it seems to be official at this point, that as of today the end of July, Rififi has closed its doors. After months of living month-to-month but seemingly stable, the owner is calling it quits...and gave all of the employees and show producers just about 24 hours notice that they no longer had a job, or a venue for their show, as of tonight. So, yeah, that is pretty much the worst fucking way possible to handle an already lousy situation. And now, one more venue for independent, live entertainment in Manhattan is gone.
