    So a young woman was stabbed in the parking lot of another establishment & yet no ban issued for that establishment?

  2. Triangle Drifter says:

    How many altercations requiring police attention have there been at the EEMYC vs the Rum Bum Bar?

  3. Beach Bum says:

    Yeah @TimeShallTell that same person has fights right outside his club and police right there to see it and his place has never been closed but a place like EEMYC (mini) that has never or rarely had incidents gets closed down talk about backwards. But I guess you can’t ruffle the feathers of the people that contribute to the government purse #FACTS
