Today in Le Souk resurrections

Despite a rather permanent closure, Avenue B's former hookah hotspot continues to put the fear in nearby residents.... from an advertised New Year's Eve bash ... to hosting loud parties... Now comes a listing on the Joonbug website....

"Come listen to the hottest Rock/Electro/Dance music from past and present. Party with all the beautiful people and enjoy the sweet tastes of HOOKAH!!"

Perhaps this listing is a mistake, and intended for Le Souk's LaGuardia Place location... or, well, I guess we'll see some beautiful people on Avenue B tomorrow night....

The add is still on line. The pricing is now gone. So what's wrong with this? I'll tell you what's wrong. This place is supposed to be a restaurant not a club. Their hours of operation are: 11:00 am to 10:00 pm Monday-Sunday, 11:00 am to 11:00 pm Tuesday-Wednesday and 11:00 am to 12:00 am Thursday-Saturday.
I asked around and apparently businesses can apply for a one time extension of their operating hours. Residents who investigated said that the SLA did not approve an extended hours permit and have yet to issue a violation.
