More Trouble for Ludlow Manor as State Revokes Liquor License

Seems like the troubled new spot, Ludlow Manor, just can't catch a break. Last Wednesday, the owners faced a hearing before the State Liquor Authority following the Community Board 3 complaints of “multiple misrepresentations” by the owners, which include Georgie Seville and allegedly Lady Gaga's ex Luc Carl. According to Blackbook, a $10,000 fine was assessed.

Ludlow Manor was approved for a ground-floor liquor permit last fall. However, they did not receive a permit for the second or third floors (though rumors are they were serving liquor illegally on both floors, leading to complaints by CB3.) Another curveball was thrown in court when the club's attorney said Carl was not actually an owner, and anyone claiming such was “making an erroneous statement.”

In 1985 through 1994 he was a resident DJ at several clubs in the Netherlands. He played weekend sets from 10pm-4am at a small nightclub called The Spock in Breda, where he was really able to settle into a style of his own.

Enjoy cocktails, cutting-edge science, and conversation at this popular after-hours series, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month.

Highly publicized diseases like Ebola and swine flu are only some of the many viruses that spread from animals to humans. Join virologist Nathan Wolfe and computational biologist Daniel Janies as they discuss their efforts to track infectious agents in animals before they reach people. Traveling from the jungles of the Congo to the marketplaces of China and using supercomputers and Google Earth, these two virus hunters are on a mission to stop the next global pandemic.

Nathan Wolfe is the founder and CEO of the Global Viral Forecasting Initiative, an organization that studies emerging diseases in animals to curb infectious threats before they become pandemics. He spends much of his time chasing viruses in Africa. In 2011, Wolfe was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. Daniel Janies is an associate professor at Ohio State University. Along with colleagues, including researchers at the Museum, he created a web-based application called Supramap that tracks and maps pathogens as they evolve, providing crucial information for public health officials and national security experts.

Proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.

This program is made possible by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
