While ListenUp strongly believes in the power of professional journalism and the merits of reporting all sides of a story fully, we'll readily admit to occasionally getting caught up in juicy gossip from time to time.
And it's with this in mind that we couldn't help but post something about the ongoing war or words happening virtually this week between some of the former owners, workers and patrons (and some other random people) about the recent closure of the club, which was located inside Kono Asian Grill, 1901 N. Kings Highway.
It all stemmed from the posting of another massively tagged event flyer on Facebook (check out last week's post "Is Facebook Tagging a Crime?"), about the re-opening of what will now be called Kono Ultralounge.
From this posting by Micahel Fluharty, owner of the local Paparazzi Stand photo-taking business, stemmed a back-and-forth the likes of which we hadn't seen on a Facebook post of this type. At the time of posting this, the number of comments were hovering right around 100 and still growing.
Now, we're not sure exactly what happened behind the scenes to prompt all this, but it seems the basic understanding is that there was a disagreement between the folks who owned and operated the club and those who owned the building which housed both Kono and Tunnel.
We'll leave it up to you to decide what really happened, but trust us when we say that if you like gossip (and really who doesn't?) This Facebook post is worth your time, complete with lots of accustations and random hearsay to boot.
If you get a chance give it a read or if you're the type to take the high road, maybe just skip it and go check out the opening of the new ultralounge this Saturday.
