NO MORE BACHELORETTES
The cavernous middle east-themed Avenue B restaurant known as Le Souk may be no more. An East Village institution most famous for its bachelorette and birthday parties (complete with roaming belly dancers), as well as drunken late nights for horny straight singles, had its liquor license permanently revoked by the state liquor authority this week for constant overcrowding. I've only been to Le Souk twice and both times it was jam packed. That said, it's one of the most amazing spaces in the East Village and I damn well hope it is put to good use.
