"We put in on Facebook.... We don't know what else we could've done."
Seriously?! I wasn't aware that Facebook was an official mode of government communication. Total bull...
I don't really think it is appropriate for a city government to condemn business in that way, but why not have a couple extra police patrolling around and keeping people from congregating around private residences and also keeping drunk pedestrian traffic moving? Also, no matter what regulations the city imposes, the kids are going to move the party to their own houses and act a fool on their porches until 2-3:00a.m. My fiance and I are young professionals who live in Corrine Square, and I have had the house for almost a decade since it was first built. Countless times we've been greeted by cigarette butts and empty beer cans on our own doorstep, or chalk drawings on our garage door by an anonymous "artist," and while I do agree that it comes with the location, I think the biggest issue is that college kids treat this city like it is their toilet and have no respect for privacy or property. It is as if whatever etiquette or courtesy they were brought up with is thrown out the window because they wander around drunkenly vandalizing property without any consequences.... Anyway, my point is, it is extremely unfair to punish a private business for the stupid decisions of a bunch of 18-22 year-olds.

"Pissedoff yankee," I'm sure you would feel SO different if it were your father or husband (or wife, whatever). This is in no way about "milking a cash cow;" HOW insensitive can you be for not sympathizing with a family? Regardless of WHAT the victim's profession was, a life was lost due to an idiotic mistake. If that were you, would you expect your wife or husband to just shrug his or her shoulders after your murder and say, "oh well, i hope that jerk pays his hundred bucks..." You may be as much of a moron as the man driving that AT&T truck.
first night open was a disaster, three people behind the bar and it took over an hour to get our first round of drinks after we ordered them. however, realizing things were a little chaotic our server made it up to us by giving us some desserts... SO good. my friends and i were definitely excited about this place so, obviously, we will give them more chances. the first night is always pretty crazy anywhere. the drinks were great though, i am excited to try more of them.
