Could Karma Be The Next Jersey Shore Business To Go?
Karma had a very rough Memorial Day Weekend and now it is being seriously discussed whether or not the hot spot will lose their liquor license.
Borough Administrator Christopher Vaz said that he, "will recommend that their license not be renewed" and is trying to clear the town of its "bar atmosphere" reputation given by the old MTV television series, The Jersey Shore.
On this past Sunday evening, cops raided this bar and discovered that minors who had been restricted upstairs had been mixed in within the drinking areas with those who are 21 years or older.
While owner John Saddy admits that minors were mixed in with adults and he was doing damage control, he believes that the town is on the hunt for a reason to shut down Karma. Click here to check out video he took during the police raid.
"Minors got mixed in with adults and I was running around trying to shut all the bars down," Saddy said. "I am running the club the way it's been run for the last 15 years. The town is just coming after us. They call in all these cops for a bunch of kids dancing."
Now don't get me wrong, being caught with underage people drinking is probably one of the worst offenses a bar can be caught with.
However, isn't there a simple fix? Instead of having designated areas for those that are legal and those that are not, simply turn Karma into a 21+ spot.
And I hate to say it, but I feel like Karma would plummet to the ground without their liquor license so this could be a real game changer.
So what do you think? Would you be sad to see Karma go if they can't get themselves out of this mess? Cast your vote!
