  11:18pm Phil:

Wow, this is one outrageous number.
Avatar 11:19pm jt:

The entire set reminds me of the old Passerby days when we would spin records, drink well and dance a lot even though technically the place didn't have a cabaret license and in the later years Mayor Rudy (Yes THAT POS) would send his goons around..
  11:19pm phat:

I'm always going to be a sucker for four on the floor.
  11:19pm Charles:

I feel like I'm being lulled into a false sense of well-being!!!...:)
