    Another great memory! Danceteria was my favorite club back in the day, and I spent many an amusing and entertaining night there. (Only looking back have I realized what a firetrap it was – omg, the elevator.). I sent this article to the friend that I always went with, jokingly asking if she’d left something behind. She told me that the only thing she ever left there was her dignity. Ah, the old days!
