Transfer: Over?


Well, flip-and-skip realtor Greg Bronstein's done it again -- but this time he's fucked with the wrong peeps. I got word on Sunday that he'd sold the Transfer -- out from under the noses of the staff. Nightlife mogul wannabe Bronstein and his horridly named organization, Flavors You Crave (gag), also owns Lime, Bar on Castro, Crave, Jet and probably a million other places as well -- and he's known for selling things at a moments notice. Sell those! Close those! He sold Castro restaurant Blue, Sneaky Tiki shut down within moments of opening, and Bronstein came really close to pissing me off when he bought and sold Hush Hush in turnaround fashion, effectively closing it down for good. But the Transfer, under fab and canny manager Shawn Vergara, has become ground zero for nonpretentious party people in just one year -- and was going strong. Most of the party promoters working with the Transfer have said they'll jump ship with out Vergara at the helm. No word what the new owners intend yet, but we'll be following the story closely, marke my words ...

Better days?
