According to the Observer, Coney Island institution Ruby's Bar & Grill closed abruptly on Saturday when a patron fell through the floor into the basement: "'One guy was taking a leak, the floor partially collapsed, and he fell 10 feet.' He landed in the bar’s dank basement...amid 'rats ... bigger than dogs'...When he finally emerged from the gaping hole in the floor...he was, in the words of one Ruby’s employee, 'literally covered in shit.' When the floor gave way, apparently, so did the plumbing." [NYO via Gothamist]
