A case of measles has been confirmed at Barcade in Fishtown. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health is urging anyone who was at the bar on May 12 or 13 to get checked out by medical professionals if they have any of the following symptoms: fever, rash, watery eyes, and a runny nose. Sadly, this also sounds like allergies, so we're sure there will be more than a few cases of hypochondria around the neighborhood, as well. Most people have been vaccinated for measles, though, so your chance of catching the disease is fairly low.

So how did this happen? One of the patrons of Barcade recently visited Thailand, and has been confirmed to have the disease, and unknowingly went out drinking before symptoms appeared. Barcade is still open for business, though, so you can continue your quest to finish Double Dragon on one quarter.
