Victor Walker, 47, an ex-con, turned himself into authorities on Saturday after confessing he was the gunman responsible for the November shootings at Juliet Supperclub. But this wasn't just any random shooting or any random victims. Walker said he did it "to send a message."

After a slew of drama and board approval issues, Amy Sacco and LDV Hospitality will open #8 tonight, a revamped version of former hotspot Bungalow 8.
Last Tuesday select friends and family were treated to a private preview of the new spot located at W. 16th Street. Early reviews have been favorable. This evening regular folk will be the judge, as #8 opens to the public.
And we say "public" loosely --getting past the velvet rope will be more annoying than having to type the # key (and simultaneously confusing your friends) every time you want to hit up the swanky new spot.

ID&T, the organization behind the massive music festival, reveals:
With production-quality at its height, Sensation America is sure to raise the bar for all future festivals to come. Domestic concert producers can wave goodbye to cleverly-lit DJ booths after Sensation tears through town, leaving attendees awestruck and hungry for more.

How will a European company conquer local and unfamiliar markets?
