I heard over the weekend that the house party/venue the Funhouse (also here) has been temporarily shut down, and the MySpace indicates as much. The rumor mill intimated that the owners of the Chestnut Street house were told that, though they're safely away from noise ordinance issues, they still need a proper business license (and things like running water) to keep the fun alive. Apparently, they were working from the assumption that by taking donations rather than charging a cover, that they could exploit some kind of loophole. Hopefully they'll get things figured out and up and running again.
