Borderstan Town Danceboutique Christopher Wiggins

Saturday night: MPD cars in front of Town Danceboutique following reports that a patron collapsed on the dancefloor. Town is at 2009 8th Street NW. (Christopher Wiggins, Washington, DC)

UPDATE: Washington Blade has more information.

A patron at Town Danceboutique died after suffering a heart attack at the popular dance club on Saturday night. A source has told Borderstan that he believes the response time from emergency personnel may have been unusually long.

The following message was sent to the club’s email list:

On Saturday night, May 1st, a 58 year old patron had a heart attack and collapsed at Town Danceboutique.  The club contacted emergency personnel who responded and worked extensively trying to revive him.  He was transported to the hospital where he later passed away.  We closed the club early due to this horrible event.  Our thoughts are with him and his
family.

We hope to have more details later. Town is located at 2009 8th Street NW, just north of  U Street.

  2. 58 years old? Ahem, maybe he was too old to be tripping the light fantastic.

    • If you think 58 is ancient, you’re going to have a tough road ahead of you.
