The Village Casino is a teen dance hall rumored to be haunted by the ghost of former teenaged chef Jordan Basile, who died in an explosion due to a malfunctioning oven. The ghost makes himself known by causing food to disappear and dancers to trip over nothing on the dance floor. His apparition is said to be seen every two years on August 16, the anniversary of his death, cooking lobster.

  1. Basile doesnt just trip dancers, he trips anyone. He doesn’t come out only on the 16. Us workers see him about once a day. The “mop room” or broom closet used to be the kitchen. It’s an eerie feeling in there, like someone is always behind you. I’ve seen boxes move and paper towels be knocked down by some unseen force. The sinks in the new kitchen turn off and on by themselves. Just today the building was eerily on edge. Everyone felt something. Guests and servers or workers were cranky (I know that’s not very uncommon) but multiple times, servers with full trays slipped today, tripping over an unseen thing, all in the same spot.
