Wetlands Preserve to Re-Open; Slight Name Change Necessitated by Economic Climate

New Yorks Wetlands Preserve will re-open next month, more than a year and a half after its landlord forced the venue to close its doors in order to ‘Make Way for Condos’ (soon to be a beloved childrens story). Owner Peter Shapiros ongoing efforts in the film world caused him to sell his interest in the club to former daytime television host Herschel Krustofsky who promptly cited ‘economic necessity’ and rechristened it the Verizon Wireless Tweeter Wetlands Center Presented by TDK. Tickets to forthcoming shows will carry a $1.50 facilities fee along with a $2.50 parking charge. When reminded that there is no lot or garage affiliated with the club, Krustofsky responded, ‘Who said there was?’ He also suggested that the new name may be a bit unwieldy, so ‘we may have to drop the word Wetlands. But other than that nothing will change, its all about the vibe. Oh yes and be sure to mention that the vibe will be enhanced by Microsofts Windows XP.’
