LOKOWIREEddie Huang writes in with a clarification: "the NY Daily News misquoted me. I told the writer really clearly that the party was still going on but that I would change the special from all-u-can-drink to something else. We're doing $3/Four Loko at the bar." A Facebook event page has been created, Huang also penned a blog post about the incident today. [EaterWire]
