As of 3:30 PM today the Mayor's office has officially closed Candy Bar. Update to follow.
I was passing the bar and was surprised to see City Officials posting their "Closed Order" to the door of the Candy bar. I thought they would be allowed to stay open and all was well. When I asked one official why he replied "they had a violation". I was not happy with the news.
Today at the Mayor's inauguration one comment caught my attention. When talking about the entertainment area he used the words "uncompromising" and "re-invent yourself". The rest was in Tagalog so I did not get the whole sense of the sentence. He was pretty emphatic though.
I think raids on other bars will follow. I have never seen it this bad before. I wonder if there is an underlying motive behind it all?
I have been told that some message boards comments are getting on Rockin Dave and calling him a liar. This is not fair and it is down right nasty. Dave witnessed what happened outside of the Baby Doll's Club at mid-night last week. No one was with him, 99% of the people making comments were not there. If you want to say something, conjecture that he might have misinterpreted what he saw or he did not see what happened 30 minutes later, but do NOT call him a liar. He passed on what he saw so people would know and learn from it. The man has no reason to lie. He was upset and worried when he saw what was happening.
Someone just sent me a list of bars to be raided in July. I will not pass it on because it was created by Road Slut. I will just keep it to see what actually happens. In a way I think that Road Slut wants these bars raided for whatever twisted reason he might have.
