Boss Tweed’s Saloon Raided in Multi-Agency ‘MARCH’ Sting Last Week
Boss Tweed’s Saloon met the wrath of the authorities last week, falling victim to a multi-agency raid that resulted in dozens of violations and fines.
The sting apparently transpired as a result of the drunk 20-year-old who allegedly passed out in the bathroom last week and remained trapped behind locked security gates. The story hit the ground running, appeared in all the local publications, and landed the bar in some deep shit.
In the immediate aftermath of the underage drinking incident – New Jersey resident (and law student) Therese Hipolito alleges her drink was spiked and threatened legal action against ownership – the establishment remained closed for much of last week. But when Boss Tweed’s decided to reopen for business on Thursday evening, the authorities pounced big time.
We are told that the action led to some 40 police department violations, plus another 20 SLA infractions.
This surprise inspection reportedly fell under the Giuliani-era program, code-named Multi-Agency Response to Community Hotspots (MARCH), whereby the alphabet soup of city and state agencies (NYPD, SLA, DOH, DOB, etc.) collaborate to visit bars with documented complaint history.
Boss Tweed’s, meanwhile, has been closed since the raid…
