Word on the street is that Mike Satsky and Brian Gefter may have lost control over Lily Pond. And if that wasn’t juicy enough, the Cheshire Cat sent over an email that added fuel to the fire.

To the extent that any person attempts to negotiate, interfere, or enter into a similar agreement for the operation of a nightclub or similar venue at the Premises, such person will be sued on the basis of, among other things, tortious interference with a contract.

Now I don’t know much about buying clubs, but I’m pretty sure if you’re in a solid contract and have control over your venue, you don’t have to send out an email to owners who may be looking at properties out East, reminding them that your space is unavailable.
The owner doth protest too much, methinks.
