Since 2010, PJ’s Cocktail Lounge in Harlem “has been the scene of four separate shootings, a stabbing, an assault, a gunpoint robbery, and an attack on two police officers,” DNA Info reports. Before that, it was closed temporarily for selling alcohol to minors, and the NYPD is moving to have it shut down again for at least another year, charging its owner with going about “business as usual” in the face of violence. Either that or it’s time for Road House 3: Seriously, Last Call … Don’t Shoot!
