Kevin McCrea and his wife went down to Suite in the Alley off Boylston last night for some dancing. Then the fire alarms started blaring. For 10 minutes. Firefighters arrived. And the whole time the DJ kept playing music and almost nobody left:
... People from the club were telling people trying to leave that this problem had happened before and that everything would be fixed in a couple minutes. By now the alarms had been going on for about 10 minutes. A few people were in the lobby trying to decide to come or go, looking a bit concerned but also peer pressured into going in as they had paid their cover charge. Then three fire fighters came in the front door, with full regalia. They were escorted by one of the nightclub workers and they went down the side hall not seeming to mind there was a nightclub full of people in front of them with the alarms going off and no one leaving. ...
Of course, you know what happened
about a mile away basically right around the corner.
