Code Blue?

For the second time in a couple of weeks, somebody has bought the entire back page of the Nashville City Paper to advertise a dance club called Code Blue. The only information on the page is a web site address:

Both times I've gone there, the site has an "under construction" site place holder and an anticipated launch date of 4/1/06. This is either a really expensive April Fool's joke or some really stupid marketing people in inaction.

Just remember when you hipsters are paying a $20.00 cover charge to go see and be seen in this place whenever it does open, that the owners wasted a crapload of cover charges before they poured the first Jager bomb.

I think you're probably right that it's an April Fool's joke. Code Blue is used in hospitals to describe a crash-cart emergency -- imminent loss of life requiring sustained intervention. If you work at a major retailer like Wal-Mart, Code Blue is the signal for immediate evacuation due to a bomb threat. You'd have to be utterly stupid to name a dance club Code Blue.

Stupid enough to keep buying the back page of the newspaper to advertise a web site that isn't up yet? I think they're exactly that stupid.

It was in the paper again today with no change in the link.
