Something MAJOR is going to happen within the next 24 hours, and this can either affect us positively, or something really bad is going to happen.
I, of course, am talking about our beloved Odyssey.
We all know what’s going on with that place. It was supposed to close in October, got an extension. Then again in December, got another extension, and finally in January, but it got a third extension to the end of April. At first I was so OVER it getting extensions, but that was because I worked for a competing club. After the first extension, I actually started to think about it.
The Odyssey is legendary. It is like the dive of all the dive’s, but its OUR dive! It doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not, you know what you’re getting when you walk in the door, and let’s face it; we’ve ALL hooked up with someone from there. God I remember back in the day when I was young and attractive, I was getting with a man every Thursday, Friday & Saturday (Does that make me seem like a slut?), and I don’t want it to go away.
So what do we do? Well, instead of bitching about having no where to go (YES! I am guilty of it too), we need to do something and show our support! Tomorrow afternoon (Thursday March 26) at 2pm at CITY HALL, 3rd floor council chambers, there will be a council meeting regarding the new location.
We’ve all talked about how it’s going to lose what it has, and sure it will. But it will be something new, and something we can’t live without. We’ve only got the O and Celebrities left for good dance venues, we can’t lose either one of them! Quit bitching about the noise (because it REALLY won’t be that big of a deal) quit bitching about not having anywhere to go. If we don’t show our support we REALLY won’t have anywhere to go.
