Randolph Country Club Closed (For Now)

Posted by Emily Sweeney February 7, 2008 04:12 PM

The Randolph Country Club, the South Shore's most popular destination for gay folks, has been shut down.... at least for a while.

Here's the story that appeared in today’s Globe. And here’s the email that the club sent out to its mailing list last week:

February 1. 2008

Hi Everyone:

Yes it is true; RCC has temporarily had its license suspended by the ABCC as of January 31, 2008. The reason being that they do not want us to operate with out the fire safety equipment in working order, and a properly secured occupancy certificate approved by all departments that are necessary form the Town of Randolph.

The Sprinkler System is currently 55% installed, and will soon be completed. The estimated time from the contractor is February 28, 2008.

RCC is temporarily shut down, however the Management and staff want to thank everyone for their support, and we look forward to doing so once again when we re-open. I think you will all agree that installation for this equipment is in the best interest for our wonderful customers, employees, and all associated with RCC.

We hope to see you all soon, but until then be safe, stay health, and be happy. We will keep you updated via e-mail and on the
web site.

That's too bad....Hopefully everything will get worked out soon. Two years ago I wrote about the Randolph Country Club's drag queen bingo games. My story and audio slideshow are still online, if you want to see some photos of the club during happier times.
