A while back we reported that Le Souk’s liquor license was stripped by the State Liquor Authority — the club, predictably, fought the cancellation, and the Observer is now reporting that it will stay open at least until Thursday, thanks to a stay granted by Manhattan Supreme Court. Just a few blocks away, Death & Co. owner David Kaplan is suing the SLA, just like he told us he would, over its refusal to renew his liquor license. We’re all for tort reform, but in this one case we’re hoping legal red tape allows us to have many more mescal old-fashioneds.
