All The News That's Fit To Print
Our roving reporter Thommy was on the Island last night, scouring the crevices looking for news stories. Here is the latest from Pleasure Island. First of all, two reliable sources say that the dance floor inside Mannequins is still there. You'll recall prior rumors that it had been sold and shipped away. Unfortunately, Mannequins will NOT be open tonight.
The Pleasure Island water taxi stop is again operational. It's free and you can use it to go to Downtown Disney Marketplace or to Downtown Disney Westside near the House of Blues. The stop is adjacent the new Paradiso 37 Restaurant & Tequila bar, which opened for business this past Thursday. Thommy reports that it is really cool inside; they had a guitar player playing. Supposedly it will not be a night club later at night.
The club formerly known as Motion will be open tonight for techno DJ Manny Lehman. Tickets are $40. The famous Motion DJ booth is back place on the stage and ready to go. I have no idea how many advance tickets have been sold but they're competing with other long-scheduled activities. Maybe they'll offer a lower price at the door but $40 is just way too much, IMO, since it does not include any drinks. Motion still looks pretty much the same except that "Motion" sign at the entrance is no longer there.
