From today’s Portsmouth Herald:

Portsmouth Sues The Page Bar Over “Dancing”

The city has filed a lawsuit against the owners of The Page Restaurant and Bar for allowing dancing in the restaurant’s basement nightclub. But Page owners said they have no control over whether their patrons bust a move.

“We don’t promote it, we don’t encourage it, we don’t advertise as dance club … We don’t want to be known as a dance club. If people come down and wiggle a little bit, what do we do? Tell them to stop? Throw them out?” said [Page owner] Dussi.

Maybe Gloria Estefan was right – it seems the rhythm really is going to get you.

P.S. Extra credit to Portsmouth Herald writer Adam Leech, for working the phrase “bust a move” into the lead paragraph of a feature news story.
