Two representatives of the City of Dallas fire marshal office and four Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission officers stopped off at Club Dada within the past hour--and are still there at the time of this posting--saying they are undergoing an "investigation" and "following up on a complaint," although the TABC officers still on the scene won't specify the extent or details of either and deny further comment.
The venue will be closed for the rest of tonight--a decision made by Dada's bar manager, not the officers.
Dada co-owner Ben Tapia could not be reached for comment.
Tonight's two shows scheduled for the long-running Elm Street venue have been moved to the Doublewide--both the Listening Room show with Nicholas Altobelli and Jon Lefler, and the Kid Rock after-party show with Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, We Are Villians and RTB2.
