CW Update: 80's Night At The Groove Cancelled
After a 3-year run on Thursday nights, CityWalk is pulling the plug on their 80's Night at The Groove event. The event premiered on January 29, 2009 which was just a few months after Pleasure Island clubs closed and was designed to draw 8TRAX fans. It featured DJ Doc Wells from 8TRAX. There were a lot of crowded Thursday nights but there were also a lot of duds. Groove management tells the Blog that even with the duds the night was pulling in more revenue than they used to make on Thursday nights. And to be fair, the duds were usually off-season and on cold or rainy Thursday nights. About a year ago they introduced a few 70's Disco tunes into the mix but it was minimal and the night never did draw many 8TRAX patrons.
The final 80's Night will be on March 15th. Big thanks to our roving reporter Thommy who alerted us to this cancellation.
