"They're Picking on Us!"
The city is cracking down on a certain nightclub - gotta be racist you know:
- A Chicago nightclub is saying enough is enough.Nouveau Tavern was already vandalized with the N-word, but managers say the city is also harassing them, and they’re suing.
Planters decorate the front of the 400 North Ontario apartment building, which was replaced after cell phone video from last weekend captured workers sweeping up broken planters and witnesses explaining who did it: two Caucasian males.
The next night, Nouveau filed a police report when a manager parked in front of the apartment building and found her car covered with raw eggs. And then Thursday morning workers were greeted by racial slurs sprayed across the front of the building.
The club has filed a lawsuit against the city for, among several allegations, pulling the club’s liquor license for a weekend; “conducting unfounded over-crowding investigations”; and using tactics “clearly meant to harass, intimidate.”
The lawsuit specifically names Ald. Brendan Reilly.
Problems establishments create their own problems and overreaction from the neighborhood is bound to occur if the problems are unaddressed...or appear to be unaddressed.
- Four men were shot — one fatally — at a lounge early Sunday in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood.
The men were inside the lounge in the 8300 block of South Halsted about 2:40 a.m. when someone inside a passing vehicle fired shots into the club, police News Affairs [...] said.
A 30-year-old man was shot in the chest and taken to Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later, authorities said. His name and home address were not being released Sunday afternoon.
So...can we expect a civil discourse regarding this club? Or will the neighborhood react the same? Differently? Might we have a serious discussion at some point? Or is someone else going to sue the city because their clientele just can't behave?
