Dude Falls Through Floor At Ruby's

Apparently a dude was taking a leak at Ruby's on Saturday when the bathroom floor collapsed, and he fell 10 feet through a gaping 6x6 foot hole and landed in the bar’s murky basement.

The basement itself was once a hopping nightspot several decades ago, where even today, amid “rats ... bigger than dogs,” as veteran Ruby’s bartender Frank Gluska once told New York Magazine, “you feel like spirits are still there drinking.”

When the dude finally emerged he was, in the words of one Ruby’s employee, “literally covered in shit.”

Yikes, I took a leak in that bathroom about 2 weeks ago. Umm, yeah.
