It appears that the over-the top eighties club scene in New York is coming back. Back in the eighties, while New Yorkers were indulging in every imaginable flight of fancy, Washingtonians (or at least the ones whom I knew) were achingly politically correct and simply sat around disapproving of everything.
So we were spared the horrors that everyone knew would come from the club scene, right? As it turns out, Washington got an extra helping of those horrors. Keep up the good work, puritans.
