Congratulations, New York City, you're now parodying your own SNL sketches: CNN Money brings word that exclamatory "nightclub" Fuzipop! takes over popular Manhattan clubs during the afternoon to throw dance parties exclusively for kids between the ages of six and 12 (and their parents). On its Facebook page, Fuzipop! claims to recreate "the spectacle of a real nightclub experience" for the under-12 set, who represent New York City's "next generation of electronic music fans."
April's event, at the West Village's Pink Elephant, featured eight- and nine-year-old DJs, served juice boxes to the kids, and provided boozy cocktails to their adult chaperones. (Juice boxes apparently help clubgoers' demeanor; per CNN, "the bouncer working the door said the toddlers and elementary schoolers were better behaved than the adults who had waited in line for entry just 12 hours earlier.") Fuzipop founders Jesse Sprague and Jenny Song tell CNN they haven't turned a profit from the business yet, but two more dates are on the calendar for May and June.
