Nice Bar Scene Rahm

  • Hundreds of people spilled into the street and broke into fights outside of a River North bar early Saturday, according to witnesses and police.

    More than a dozen Chicago police officers flocked to 149 W. Kinzie St. at the Old Crow Smokehouse bar on the Near North Side around 1 a.m. to try to disperse the unruly crowd that spread across the block near Kinzie and LaSalle Street.

    Patrons of Old Crow Smokehouse said some customers grew rowdy in the bar, and people began fighting, until police officers flooded the establishment.
A dozen officers are now considered a "flood" to quell a riot of "hundreds."

If only there was enough manpower to have a citywide response unit.

Who are we kidding - they'd all be ducking at 1230.

to hire security
hundreds?: how many more before it's declared
a nuisance bar
hundreds? get the healt dept. over there and
culture everything, especially the ice machines.
something has to be wrong with that type of volume

Normally, Old Crow is a "country" bar. However, on the night in question it seems that a "hip-hop promoter" decided to have a little party, with bottle service of course. Hip-Hop draws a certain type of crowd, (most of you know what I mean). Anyway, there were problems all night long, but when you pay $500 for a bottle of "Henny" you don't want anyone telling you that you can't finish the bottle because a few of your "friends" fucked it up for everybody. Funny thing is several fights started AFTER the police arrived, further proving that this segment of society doesn't give a shit about the police. Just remember boys and girls there are cameras everywhere. Stay safe.

>>>>> 'The country venue can be described as the ultimate blend of home cookin and a lively saloon.' <<<<<

Ah-ha! There you have it, it's a 'Lively Saloon'.

Some folks take things waaaaaay to literal today and the yuppies & snowflake millennials 'prolly' thought they were back in 1878 and figured every Saloon needed a good old fashioned 'cowboy brawl' before the night was over. (LOL)

btw: I was told growing up that after Prohibition was repealed, one of the new laws/rules/reg's was all bars / 'liquor establishments', were barred from using the word, 'Saloon'. They had to use 'Tavern', Tavern being more respectable than 'Saloon'. But hey, this is Chicago, who cares about silly 'old' laws.

Good point.

Still, it's better than listening to the now defunct TRU/MSF Hairgels and current 3 Year Wonders that populate every tactical team regale anyone within earshot with 'war stories' of 'wolfpacking' into 'dope tips' to grab 'shorties' with 'jabs'.

Thug night rears it's ugly head at old crow this time. Cash is king. These greedy bars don't care who they cater to until someone is shot and killed inside the bar or out front and then they're surprised when the city shuts them down. A bar overcrowded with assholes and not enough security to keep things under control equals the shitshow that occurred Saturday morning. The moment you start allowing there to be thug night at your bar is when things quickly statt going downhill and you get shut down. It's happened time and time again.

CO’PRA sent out a communitay complaining witness response team for video.

Yes in deed, back in the day.
There never was a bar fight that wasn’t dispatched in short order with a minimum dozen in the wagon, including the lingering onlookers.
Hope the taxpayers and tourists are satisfied with Sanctuary City so far.

Thought this was basically a restaurant.
Licensing needs to be amended to reflect social media frenzies.
If they’re going after hours hip-hop, they’ll need a 6 a.m. license for starters.
Guaranteed there’s a going to be a Cat-5 when the posse starts to arrive an hour before closing with m’own juice.
Never hear of bar fights in 011, 015, 002-007.

Another fat envelope dropped off at Brendon’s Office of Tolerance, No Law and No Order, everything’s cool now.
So I axe, Old Crow...was it worth it?

So long as there’s no Tough Cookie™ the feral urban mayhem will continue.
Hands off. Please stand by.

There's a reason why Medill grads are referred to as "Medilldos" - they spread into every news organization and it's the key to "success" in journalism. Meanwhile if you went to a normal journalism school and learned to write well and not be part of the story, you're not going to have a career in journalism.

That could have occurred anywhere. Rednecks down here in the South do the same shit. Doorman/security at that club should have been ready for 'retribution.' In that kind of job, there have to be guns at the ready which work for the management as well. Can't hire police, hire armed plainclothes security. It pays to have a plan, always.

Probably because the Department does not release those body cam videos unless forced to do so like the JVD video.

The daily two dead tree media outlets have no staff photographers anymore. The only photos they print is what politicians, police or citizens provide. The TV stations rely a lot on cell phone videos from citizens. Does the media pay for any of these?

I remember 1978, getting my Physical for the job on Hubbard, The first time in the morning I was told I had a Heart Murmur by Doctor Finks and they threw my ass out the door, 4 hours later and a $150.00 short, I walked in and Dr. Ross now touched my chest and said you are cured and will be hired next week.

Anyway, don't the copper' that work special on Hubbard work to 0400 on weekends ?

Love all you fine people here on the only TRUE news source in Illinois. SCC - Give us 30 more years...Please. Hope I am alive to see the CPD rise from the ashes. You guys stay alert and keep that F U attitude to the alleged brass and the hood rats.


Stay warm and hit the shows when working VRI after roll call on Hubbard in the Loop. The Chicago and Michael Todd Movie house on Clark has the balcony open for us special employment guys. Some poor copper' found the house so homie they sleep to the 3 rd watch and got paid for working a double, We were over worked from laughing till we pissed our pants.
