“It’s so hard to get in there in the first place, then you finally make it in and this happens.”


-a 20something who patronised the new hep spot Socialista, when a bartender infected with Hepatitis A was working at the club.

Hepatitis A is a virus that is usually spread by contact (stop eating NOW if you are reading this) with the infected’s stool by eating food the infected has handled after not washing their hands. (Explains why there are signs everywhere imploring restaurant and bar employees to wash their hands.)

In other words, hep A is gross.New York City’s Department of Health is offering free vaccines for any patrons who hit the club during the days the bartender was working — February 7, 8 and 11. Patrons who might want to get their free shots include Madonna, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Lucy Liu, Salma Hayek, Kate Hudson and Bruce Willis. They were loving life on February 7, celebrating Ashton Kutcher’s 30th birthday.

The free vaccine and maybe a handwritten note of apology from Socialista’s co-owner and NBC Entertainment president Ben Silverman might make up for putting a damper on the good time?

This is why Tallulah is a big proponent of drinking at home. Maybe the company isn’t famous and can get quite belligerent but I always wash my hands when fixing the drinks.
