2010_10_chichiz.jpgChi Chiz bar is in danger of losing its liquor license after NYPD undercover detectives conducted multiple drug buys with dealers in the bar. Chi Chiz contends that the police were the ones who suggested using the bar to the dealers, and are counter-suing, claiming that the entire suit was "motivated by racial and anti-gay animus". The NYPD denies that claim, saying that Chi Chiz was the dealers' locale of choice. It is likely that the bar will go out of business if the SLA strips its license, but the owners hope to sell before a final ruling. [Villager]
