Looks like Dame can now pop them bottles again. Yesterday, a Lower Manhattan judge agreed to settle the restraining order, which the city placed on his DD172 establishment last week for selling and distributing alcohol without a permit. Let’s have a drink and celebrate.
Dash’s lawyer Joshua Seidman told us that the city had never served his client any papers and that “selling liquor was never a part of the business model of that location.” (Two police documents from April and May obtained by the Voice list Dash by name on reports of an illegal bottle club/alcohol warehousing.) Seidman added that “the company hasn’t operated out of that premises since the beginning of summer.”
