The words "Yale Club" have new meaning! An American Studies graduate student named Madison Moore (whose name you may or probably may not recognize from his contributions to the millennial listicle farm Thought Catalog) is teaching a third-year seminar at Yale on clubbing, titled "Dance Music and Nightlife Culture in New York City." Its syllabus contains journeys from New Haven to clubs in New York City, including the Boom Boom Room at the Standard. As if you needed another reason to never go there.
