Backstreet Update

Posted By on Fri, Sep 11, 2009 at 3:42 PM

Backstreet owner Shane Trice was set to appear in Environmental Court Friday morning, but the case has been reset until September 25th. The club will remain closed until then.


The city's largest gay dance club was raided and temporarily closed last week as a public nuisance, the result of a months-long undercover police operation. Trice was arrested and charged with aggravated gambling promotion, storage of liquor for sale, possession of gambling device, and unlawful sale of alcohol.

According to Backstreet's e-mail newsletter sent out on Thursday, patrons are encouraged to hang out at Metro (1349 Autumn) on Friday night and Mary's (405 N. Cleveland) on Saturday night.
