New York Post has reported that multi-millionaire rapper, businessman and new father Jay-Z has had his 40/40 Club shut down by health authorities due to healthcode violations. Food in fridges at â€˜dangerouslyâ€™ warm temperatures and hot food left out on counters.
To make the story even crazier, it was only reopened the night before last after being closed for 10 months whilst it was given a $10 million dollar makeover. Jay-Z held an A-List party to celebrate the reopening of the 40/40 club which included guests such as Def Jam records founder Â Russell Simmons, Â respected film director Spike Lee and was even attended by one of the wealthiest man on this planet, billionaire investor Warren Buffet!
Following the health hazards, health authorities stepped in and closed the restaurant. A source said:
Â â€œIf you have a walk-in place with food like this, you put a hell of a lot of people at risk,â€ said the source. â€œA night of dinner and dancing should not include the risk of contracting food-borne illness.â€
Ron Berkowtiz, a spokesman for 40/40 club insisted there was no interruption in sales or service.
The 40/40 club is facing a further Â 69 violations points as it was slapped with 39 points back in March at its last inspection due to improper handling of food and sanitation problems.. Not cool!
So $10 million went to refurbishing the club, what about investing in quality chefs that know hygiene regulations and know how to correctly store food! Shameful to say the least!
