Casa Romana’s Wet T-Shirt Event Cancelled

Flyer for the Previously Scheduled Event

Oct. 1, 2010 By Christian Murray

The owner of Casa Romana, the Queens Boulevard restaurant where a huge fight broke out last month, has had his plans to rent his establishment to a raunchy promoter thwarted.

The owner had rented the bar to 4Skin Productions, which was promoting a party on Oct. 8 where scantily-clad woman would provide “Body Shots”, “Lap Dances” and “Oil Wrestling.”

However, upon getting word of this event, Jimmy Van Bramer’s office and the local police were able to convince the owner of Casa Romana to call the party off.

The proposed party would have come just weeks after the community called for the bar/restaurant to be shut down, following several stabbings that took place there on Aug. 28, which led to 14 arrests. Other parties held there have also turned ugly, elected officials have said.

In a statement about the proposed 4Skin Production event, Van Bramer’s office said the following:

“Our office has been working closely with the community affairs unit at the 108th (police) precinct to address the issue. The owner of Casa Romana and the promoter for the event in question have been contacted to discuss community concerns about this proposed event, after which the owner is stating that he will not have the party. Council Member Van Bramer is still in conversations with [local precinct] Captain Powers to make sure that the owner follows through with his promise. We will be following this situation closely.

gotta say, the building owner has some set planning an event like that just weeks after the brawl. Its one thing for him to try to rent it out for appropriate events, but to rent it for this type of event shows that he really doesn’t care what the community says. Hopefully the community will keep the heat up on him until he sells.


This is truly a fantastic day for sunnyside. our town sticking together to prevent bad situations from happening. Now if we can prevent 5 phone stores from opening up in our town and killing comepttion from happening. What about a crime watch for our area. A volunteer group of people to cover our streets with loosing day light in a month. This would be great to organize now
