goodbye old friend?

after being on the front lines of this fight for several years, looks like they'll finally be shutting the doors on my old client and neighbor, cbgbs. i'm of two minds about this:

1) it's a historical landmark that should be preserved in nyc. but they've got to give him some help, cuz hilly hasn't been able to make his rent for YEARS. i'm cool with that as a nyc taxpayer.

2) if the name is spared by the club's move to vegas, does that mean i'll have to watch the likes of paris hilton and tara reid partying there? because honestly, i'd rather let rock 'n roll die than let it party with a bunch of moronic skanks.
