    Does anybody out there know the truth about Limelight in NY City?

    I had one of the best nights of my life there about a year & 1/2 ago ... was introduced to Green Velvet (behind the tables, where I feel he's a master) amongst a fantastic crowd, good vibe & tons of great techno.

    His enthusiam was contagious & the setting was top notch. Just the right size to enjoy & not have to fight for space. (Not to mention the building itself ... nothing like groovin' inside the remains of an old church ... slightly sinister but unforgettable!!!) I will never forget wandering around New York at 6:30 a.m. feeling extreme bliss & being blown away by how much fun the night had been.

    I'm trying to find out if it's true that the club has been closed down. I've heard conflicting reports. Can anyone out there tell me? I do believe it's time for a return visit.

    I heard it closed down months ago soon after twilo.

    Re-opening would be news to me.

    So it's true ...

    Ah well; I'm glad I was able to experience it. Guess this means 1 thing for sure: a lot more investigative work before the next trip to NY. :D

    Thanks for the info!
