City Investigates Continental’s Door Policy


According to the Local East Village, the City Commission on Human Rights is now investigating accusations that the Continental has a racist door policy, and further demonstrations are planned, but owner Trigger Smith, who has been investigated by the commission before, insists “there’s not a prejudiced bone in my body” and says he’ll continue his unwritten dress code of “no baggy, saggy jeans” rather than complying with a protest group’s request that he host multicultural-themed nights.
