KK suspended – where will the jersey chasers go?


That’s the question one commenter asked on the Herald article about the Kollege Klub’s one month suspension.

Surprising to see only one council member voted against the suspension. You’d think Bryon Eagon and Bridget Maniaci might have voted against. Of course, even a very pro-bar alder can make a good case for supporting the suspension – fights. Even those who oppose police raids and underage citations can say that the KK had legitimate security issues and there needed to be consequences. In fact, if you oppose bar raids for underage drinking, you can point to the KK as a place where cops actually should be.

UPDATE: According to Eagon, the vote on the Council represented an approval of the deal worked out between the KK owner and the City Attorney’s office. Therefore, a vote in favor was in many ways a vote to accept a sort of plea bargain.

The Herald also discussed the prospect of a student member on the ALRC, but anybody who read the article is probably extremely confused:

Ald. Bryon Eagon, District 8, had made a motion during the previous CCOC meeting to have a student have a vote on the CCOC, but the motion to amend the proposal failed.

The second CCOC should be replaced with ALRC.

Keep in mind: the suspension will take place in December and January, when many students will be away over break.

    Yeah, it was a little tricky to get the gist of the suspension vote, but the quotes from the one council member who voted against made it clear that she didn’t think the deal went far enough in punishing the KK. I’d have to agree.

    Ugh. Fixed online.

    Last night was sort of a disaster (didn’t leave until 3:45 in the morning), apologies to anyone for the confusion.

    I cannot but exclaim my utter jubilation that this place has been shut down. Thank God.

    Clegg, one of these days I’m going to get you in a room with a bunch of bros and not let you leave until you’ve assimilated.

    There in lies one of my issues. Seems like a big break to let the bar cherry pick the months to be closed.
