This is very last minute but I have heard through the grapevine that Ruin, a nightclub for the gloom cookies and darker souls of Los Angeles, may be shutting down if the numbers don’t improve on attendance. A number of nightlife spots are struggling during this time as people aren’t playing in their usual sandboxes with any regularity but there aren’t very many playgrounds of this ilk. If you are a member of my tribe, come out tonight (the earlier the better) and save our little black sandbox.
Ruin is held at the Monte Cristo located at 3100 Wilshire Blvd. Entry is free if you arrive at 10 pm when the doors open. It is $5 before 11 pm and $10 after that point. There is valet parking for $5 in a safe, enclosed parking lot just below the club.
