Boxers Will Stay On, After All

Boxers, a gay bar that has been trying to open in Hell’s Kitchen for months, has been denied a liquor license because of its proximity to two schoolyards. Hundreds of people packed a heated Community Board 4 meeting last night debating the bulky issue. Parents from both P.S. 111 and Sacred Heart of Jesus School have been fighting Boxers — which has another location in Chelsea — for months now, while the supporters have done everything possible to make things work, including the construction of an innocuous taco stand, which would create more physical distance between the bar and the schools. Alas, it looks like there will be no such Mexican food or boy boîte, and that everyone should just switch back to briefs. [DNA Info]
