CBGB Opening Restaurant at Newark Airport

BY: BUZZ60

CBGB was once a very famous punk rock music venue in New York City, but closed its doors in 2007.

Until now, we've just learned a form of it will be opened at the Newark Airport where it will be a restaurant. Which is about as punk rock as getting a Facebook request from your great uncle.

CBGB was where bands like The Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads and Patti Smith got themselves going. Now it will be a place where people can get $13 roasted beet salads.

A "No Stage Diving" sign is posted at the bar area of CBGB nightclub in New York Friday, Aug. 19, 2005. The club's lease expires on Aug. 31 and a longstanding rent dispute could convince the landlord, the Bowery Residents' Committee, to shut down the venerable birthplace of punk and find a new tenant. Negotiations are ongoing over the new lease, with high-profile rockers Little Steven Van Zandt and Blondie's Debbie Harry coming to the aid of owner Hilly Kristal and the club. Although CBGB's won a recent court decision regarding its back rent, there's no guarantee that a new deal will be reached. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)

The news was first reported by Gothamist. Many are sad to see such an institution "sell out."

The other important feature of the old CBGB to mention is how terrible the conditions were in the bathroom. Now it better be clean, because CBGB is no longer about angst and fighting your way through all of life's garbage. It's about uniforms being on time and sweet talking the health inspector.
