The dance floor at Brooklyn disco Odyssey was responsible for making John Travolta a freakin’, dancin’ movie star. The multicolored, Plexiglas-covered fixture with its synchronized lights will go up on eBay in April. It’s what Tony Manero won the dance contest on. With the lights. That flashed like a Simon game. In Saturday Night Fever. The club was sold to a real estate investment company, and the 24′ X 16′ floor with its 300-plus colored lights was removed by owner Jay Rizzo, who told the NY Post, “It has literally been the heartbeat of the club.” Literally? That would explain why bids of $80,000 and up are expected. Three hundred possible heart transplants. (Ananova)
