A while back we shared the unsettling news that rocker Andrew W.K.’s years-in-the-works performance/party venue, at one point called Santa’s but now called simply 100 Lafayette (after its location near Walker Street in Tribeca), had its liquor-license application rejected after initially having it approved in 2006. But we knew the man who said “when it’s time to party, we will party hard” wouldn’t fail us: The SLA’s site indicates that a license has finally been granted. We’ve heard that the venue will hold private parties as soon as this week. It’s enough to make us join A.W.K. in a chorus of “I Love New York City.”
