Tucker Carlson responds to CO shooting at LGBTQ nightclub with vicious attack on gender-affirming care

Quote
From the November 21, 2022 edition of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So those horrific murders in Colorado over the weekend quickly became an excuse for even more censorship of your speech. You are responsible for this, they told you, because you said bad things. You are guilty of stochastic terrorism, inspiring violence through your beliefs. Anderson Lee Aldrich committed mass murder because you complained about the sexualization of children. Every time you oppose story time for fifth graders or point out that female genital mutilation is being committed on minors – which it is – every time you say that, you put your life people in danger. Now that seems implausible and yet many make that claim. Many have done so in the last 24 hours. Take, for example, NBC’s Brandy Zadrozny.

[…]

When you state the truth, arguably, and the truth is that some adults in this country, apparently a growing number, have a deeply unhealthy fixation on child sexuality – when you say that out loud, you get people killed. So says Brandy Zadrozny. And in saying that, Brandy Zadrozny and the many like her are effectively defending this same deeply unhealthy fixation on child sexuality.

By the way, it’s absolutely real. You can’t imagine that. That happens. The evidence is everywhere. And it shows up on the internet. And Brandy Zadrozny and people like her hate that you see this.

Note that Zadrozny does not claim that Libs of TikTok invented this. She never even suggests it. She threatens them, and what she does threatens them, you should know, and she does it because they report it. Noticing what is happening is their crime. And again, it happens.

Boston Children’s Hospital, one of the most famous hospitals in the world, has admitted to performing double mastectomies on children for no medical reason. There is no scientific justification for sexually mutilating children. They don’t do it for a scientifically defensible reason. They do it because they believe in a very specific religious ideology. It’s true. Is pointing this out an attack on homosexuals? Of course, this is not an attack on homosexuals. It has nothing to do with homosexuals. It has to do with child genital mutilation, which is wrong, period. It should be a crime, period. And yet suddenly, it is very common.

Jesse Arthur Carroll: From Whistler Nightclubs to Netflix

Former Whistlerite Jesse Arthur Carroll stars in Smoke Eater, screened at the Whistler Film Festival on December 4

Hindsight, they say, is 20/20.

For Jesse Arthur Carroll, who has worked as a stand-up comedian, voice-over actor and film actor, it means he can relate his years in Whistler to his current life in New York.

If you lived at the station from 2011 to 2014, you might remember him from Maxx Fish, where he was a manager and ran a comedy night.

“Honestly, I look back on that time with so much fondness,” he says. “I partied like I was on tour with Mötley Crüe – I ran a nightclub, but I don’t know if I’d be there if I didn’t. When I was running these comedy nights, I had all these Aussies coming up to me and saying, ‘You’d kill in Australia’. You must come’… [Performing in Australia] eventually brought me back to Vancouver to resume acting. It was the start of a long journey to get to New York.

You can follow any of these interesting threads to learn more about Carroll’s captivating career, but the one people love to ask about is voiceover work.

It all started when he was nearing his late thirties and realizing that his days running a nightclub might not last forever.

“It’s hard to bear when you become an old man like me,” he says.

With some acting experience under his belt, he came across an instructional YouTube video on “how to get voiceover work from home” and reviewed it. Intrigued, he went all out, buying high-end recording gear and teaching himself how to use and edit it.

“The first month, I made between $50 and $100,” he says.

But then he signed up on various audition websites and started applying for every voiceover gig he could find.

“I was doing 20 to 30 auditions a day,” he adds. “It made me so much better. It took about 200 auditions or so, but then [the gigs] started rolling after that.

These days, you can find his voice on over 500 different credits, from commercials for Nintendo, Amazon, Walmart and Toyota, to the narrator of the TV series. Highway truckers.

After finding success in this area of ​​niche acting, Carroll realized he wanted to get back into acting on screen, which he had gone to school for in Vancouver in the mid-2000s.

“In order to reach the level of acting I wanted, I knew I had to come down to America. That’s what made me want to make the transition,” he says.

While he got his US work visa through an audio post-production studio and continues to work in that field, he also began studying acting at the Terry Knickerbocker Studio in New York, where everyone from Sam Rockwell to Natasha Lyonne and Emmy Rossum, have all been coached.

“He was the best coach in the business,” adds Carroll.

Although you can find Carroll’s acting chops on display in a range of places, including Christmas movies streaming this season like Mingle all the way, Christmas Pen palsand Christmas on Holly Laneas well as several Hallmark films and The imperfectstreaming on Netflix, he also stars in a short film that will make its Canadian debut at the Whistler Film Festival on December 4.

smoke eaterwhich takes place in 1981, chronicles the day of a young girl who follows her mother as the only female police firefighter.

Carroll plays Kurt, a firefighter who seems like a good guy on the surface, but takes a less likeable turn.

“It was shot in Langley at two different fire departments,” he says. “It was good because the fire department was there and there were a few calls while we were there… They’re serious. I spoke to one of the guys when they were hanging out between shots and as soon as the alarm went off, they were gone.

Working with Kaylah Zander (who plays the title character), her on-screen daughter Maria Frazer and director Gloria Mercer was a highlight, he says.

“They were so collaborative and open to ideas,” he says. “They had their own vision, but they accepted mine…I didn’t want to play Kurt as if he was a villain, which he is, but it was too obvious. I thought it was more faithful to the reality that he didn’t think he was doing anything wrong.

To catch smoke eater at the Whistler Film Festival on Sunday, December 4 at 1 p.m. at the Maury Young Arts Center.

The festival runs in person from November 30 to December 4 and online until January 2. For more information or tickets, visit Whistlerfilmfestival.com.

Emo Nite Resumes Groundbreaking Zouk Nightclub Residency in Las Vegas

Morgan Freed and TJ Petracca are not DJs, musicians or producers. They’re the engineers of the party known as Emo Nite, a cultural phenomenon that Las Vegas is suddenly very familiar with.

Not being a DJ duo didn’t stop Emo Nite from landing a residency at Resorts World’s Zouk Nightclub this year, launched at last month’s emo and pop-punk music festival When We Were Young on the Las Strip. Vegas.

“There were hundreds of thousands of emo kids in Las Vegas,” Petracca says. “The festival was canceled on Saturday [due to high winds], and so many people were disappointed, including ourselves, but that kind of made it even more special for us on Saturday. We were able to bring in a few extra special guests to play during our set, and we got a lot of feedback from people saying, “You saved us the weekend,” which was really nice to hear.

Known for regularly incorporating a wide range of artists as guests at their parties, Emo Nite has brought together Boys Like Girls singer Martin Johnson, State Champs singer Derek DiScanio, Neck Deep singer Ben Barlow and the duo electronic 3OH3! for the beginnings of Zouk.

Freed and Petracca founded Emo Nite eight years ago as part of a party at a small dive bar in Los Angeles’ Echo Park neighborhood, a celebration of the often maligned rock genres they never stopped loving. It wasn’t designed or intended to evolve into a big Vegas nightclub, but the guys never imagined they’d be playing Coachella either. Welcome to 2022.

“TJ and I started doing Emo Nite because we wanted to give space to people who didn’t fit in. It’s not a normal nightclub. You don’t hear that stuff in the clubs,” Freed says. “We didn’t know we’d grow up to be entertainers, but that’s kind of what we are. Whether you know Emo Nite or not, you’re going to have a great time.

The Coachella set actually paved the way for the Vegas residency; attentive curators from the Zouk Group attended the show and began to imagine how the enhanced experience would play out in Resorts World’s high-tech environment.

Petracca says this stage of Emo Nite is all about evolution: “How do you take those anthems that everyone comes to sing along to and combine them with house music, EDM, the club hits that everyone comes to everyone wants to dance? We had to create a whole new product here [at Zouk].

“When we got the residency, we had to double the amount of music we created for Coachella, work on a whole bunch of new mixes and mashups, and create new visuals to go along with it all,” he continues. “It’s a unique thing for us, and I don’t think it’s like anything else Zouk has on the roster.”

Emo Nite is actually unlike anything in any Las Vegas nightclub, given the inbuilt culture of its core genres. And with at least half a dozen dates coming up next year at Zouk and Ayu Dayclub – and When We Were Young returning to the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in October 2023 – there’s clearly plenty more room for emo. on the Strip.

“I think when the world went through a lot of big changes, people were more willing to feel more emotions, and maybe they would go back and listen to how they felt when they were growing up,” Freed says. . “We hate the word ‘resurgence,’ because it never went away for us, but in the mainstream there’s been a bit of a resurgence, because people have been through all of these things that these songs are about. “

Historic Black-Owned Myrtle Beach Nightclub Inducted into Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – For decades, Charlie’s Place has been the go-to place for black musicians, showcasing live music and insight into a community’s unique and complex coastal experience.

The Carolina Beach Music Board inducted the first African-American building, Charlie’s Place, in the Hall of Fame.

“The path has already been paved. We just have to walk in it,” said Cookie Goings, Neighborhood Services Manager for the City of Myrtle Beach.

The 28th Annual Carolina Beach Music Awards hosted its prestigious event at the Alabama Theater.

Its mission is to bring beach music to life and give recognition to artists. For the first time, Carolina Beach Board members recognized what Charlie’s Place has offered the African American community for decades.

“We didn’t expect it and I’m so happy. It’s an honor it’s a blessing. It’s amazing and we’re very grateful for that,” Goings said.

Goings has worked for Neighborhood Services for years, focusing on preserving the history that Charlie’s Place has to offer.

“I feel like we were given a mission. We stand on the shoulders of Mr. Charlie and Ms. Sarah, but of everyone who came before us,” Goings said.

It was a popular African American nightclub and small hotel. During Jim Crow, it was listed in the “Green Book” as a safe place for African Americans to visit.

“He created an atmosphere and a space for everyone to come together and have a good time. That’s all they wanted to do,” Goings said.

Enriched by music, Charlie’s Place was a place where famous African American singers like Dizzy Gillespie, Little Richard, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday sang.

“I am so grateful that we, Neighborhood Services, April and I, and the City of Myrtle Beach have been selected and chosen to carry on this legacy,” Goings said.

Vikings’ Kirk Cousins ​​Explains The Origins Of The Shirtless Celebration

Kirk Cousins ​​has made quite an impression on and off the pitch this season.

His 7-1 Minnesota Vikings enjoyed a prosperous season with the Cousins ​​airflight celebrations made headlines after road victories. The 34-year-old caller spoke to Peyton and Eli Manning about his viral shirtless look on ESPN’s “ManningCast” during the Ravens’ win over the Saints on “Monday Night Football.”

“It really started coming back from our game against the Saints a few weeks ago, coming back from London we had the eight hour flight and they kind of turned first class on that boxed flight back from night,” Cousins ​​said. Before I knew it, I had Christian Darrisaw’s channel around my neck and everyone was taking pictures and posting them on social media.

Cousins ​​added that it wasn’t until last week’s win in Washington over his former team the Commanders that his teammates encouraged him to take off his shirt and sport the chain shirtless.

Cousins ​​has been effective this year. He scored 13 touchdowns and completed 64.3% of his passes. Since a three-steel clunker against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2, Cousins ​​and Vikings haven’t lost a game.

The viral postgame celebration inspired some Minnesota Halloween costumes, according to Cousins. It also inspired NFL insider Adam Schefter to go shirtless with chains around his neck on the “Monday Night Football” pre-game show.

Cousins ​​has already left his mark on the 2022 NFL campaign, but the quarterback mentioned he’s still unsure what to make of the in-flight celebrations.

“If we keep winning these away games, I don’t know where it’s going to take us,” Cousins ​​said. “But I’m a little nervous about where this might end.”

A Russian soldier starts a fire in a nightclub, killing 15 people

A Russian soldier starts a fire in a nightclub, killing 15 people

At least 15 people have been killed in a tragic nightclub fire at a prominent Russian establishment.

An inferno raged in the Polygon club in Kostroma, causing a ceiling to collapse “after a military man fired a flare into the ceiling from the dance floor”.

A further 60 revelers are thought to have suffered horrific burns and other injuries as more than 250 people were evacuated from the nightclub hellhole.

Police seized a married man named Stanislav Ionkin, 23, on suspicion of starting the fire with a flare, used by hunters.

The soldier was then questioned about the fire.

The reason for the event was unknown, although other reports indicated a disagreement that escalated into a “mass brawl”.

Hero Andrei Kuzmin saved dozens of lives by kicking down a door, allowing clubgoers to flee, although the death toll was reportedly higher due to the closing of four fire doors.

To rescue the victims, firefighters had to use specialized cutting equipment.

Andrei recounted: “When the fight started, they turned on the lights, there was a pop and there was instant smoke.

“It was instantaneous. There was a bang, there was smoke, panic, smoke.

He added: “The only thing I said was ‘calm down’. Then I went and kicked down the door. I kicked down the door and people came out.

“There were a lot of people in the place because it was very popular.”

“I can’t say for sure, but roughly there were about 300 people there, as everything was packed, both the bar and the dance floor, and the tables were all taken.”

He continued, “[After the fire started] I thought of nothing. I was thinking how I was gonna get out of here, that’s what I was thinking.

“I took it [the door] outside and the crowd rushed through. If I hadn’t removed it, it would have been terrible.

A video shows the bodies outside the club.

Melbourne nightclub king George Zogoolas dies leaving behind Real Housewives ex-wife Janet Roach

The ‘mad hatter’ behind some of Melbourne’s most popular nightclubs has died, as friends recall the party king’s antics.

George ‘Ziggy’ Zogoolas, who held the keys to the city’s hippest club in the 2000s, was bid farewell by friends on Wednesday after dropping by in his sleep in Bali.

He left behind three children, including sons Jake and Paul Zogoolas, whom he had with his ex-wife, Real Housewives of Melbourne star Janet Roach.

Mr Zogoolas ran the trendy Love Machine club on Chapel Street in Prahran. The club hosted the popular ‘Gossip Sundays’ – with revelers known to party until the early hours of Monday.

The charismatic owner of the venue was known for the energy he brought to the club during the 2000s, drawing celebrities and football stars through the doors for years.

He also owned Chasers further down Chapel Street, turning the downtrodden place into a bustling nightclub.

He died of an apparent heart attack, the sun herald reported.

Close friends remembered Mr Zogoolas as the ‘king of clubs’.

“You always ran your own running mate, you taught me a few things about our beloved Melbourne nightclub scene,” wrote friend and DJ Peter Apostle.

“My deepest condolences go out to Paul Zogoolas and the rest of the family.”

Local journalist Luke Dennehy left a touching note for his companion on social media.

“Sad to hear of the passing of one of Melbourne’s first nightclub kings, George Zogoolas.

“I first met George in the mid-2000s when he was turning Love Machine on Sunday nights (ironically it was called Gossip) into a celebrity-filled place we wrote about all the time. RIP, says -he.

Other friends called him “Melbourne’s iconic personality in the nightclub industry” and a “genius storyteller”.

A former Mr Zogoolas performer has recalled how the nightclub czar gave her a chance as she started out in the hospitality industry.

“You saw something in me and always treated me like a princess and often called me that,” she wrote on social media.

‘The phrase ‘Baby!! Go upstairs and work in this room” will forever be in my fondest memories, a weekly occurrence that will always make me laugh.

“Thank you for everything and for the huge hand you had in shaping me into the queen I am today, it’s a sad day for many. Here comes the king of clubs and the mad hatter of our little wonderland .

He had his two sons Paul and Jake with reality star Ms Roach, 58.

Ms Roach appeared on the Real Housewives of Melbourne and was romantically involved with drugstore tycoon Sam Gance during her appearance on the Real Housewives of Melbourne.

She had known the Chemist Warehouse co-founder for about 30 years before the two got together.

She and her son Jake together run their brand of tea, which is supplied by the drugstore chain.

Jake also founded a burns charity after he was set on fire by burning petrol while standing by a campfire in rural New South Wales in 2011.

The 22-year-old was airlifted to hospital, put into a coma and treated for his severe burns.

Mr Zogoolas’ former club still operate as the Love Machine but have been embroiled in scandals in recent years.

A deadly double shooting in 2019 sparked the nightclub’s woes when two men walked past the club after midnight and opened fire, killing a security guard and a club boss.

In 2021, a glazing in the club caused a violent fight before the attackers were kicked by the bouncers.

The bloodied rivals, however, disappeared from the venue only to later engage in a shootout in the suburbs.

Earlier in 2022, a corporate banker killed himself while facing charges of sexual assault which allegedly took place at the club on New Years Day 2020.

Police alleged that two assaults occurred just 10 minutes apart in the day, infuriating a friend of one of the alleged victims.

The club still operates under its license and is a lively venue on the bustling strip.

Two Singaporean men arrested in Bangkok for selling ‘Happy Water’ to nightclubs

bangkok the police arrested two men from Singapore yesterday for allegedly producing a drug known as “happy water‘ and sell it to entertainment venues around the capital.

Happy Water is made by mixing various drugs with sugary drinks. The drug cocktail is not for the faint-hearted: it usually contains ecstasy, methamphetamine, caffeine, diazepam and tramadol all rolled into one.

Police arrested Lo Jin Ang, 63, and Ong Chao Xiang, 34, both Singaporean nationals. The men allegedly produced happy water and sold it to nightclubs, including the illegal Jinling Pub in Bangkok’s Yan Nawa district, which was raided Wednesday morning. Police found ketamine, nimetazepam and “Happy Water” formula inside the site.

Hundreds of revelers in Jinling were arrested in the raid, with 104 of them testing positive for drugs. A total of 99 people who tested positive were Chinese nationals.

The investigation led officers from the Narcotics Suppression Division yesterday to raid Lo Jin Ang’s apartment at Ratchada Soi 5 in Huai Kwang district.

Inside the apartment, officers found the Happy Water formula – in the same packaging as the Happy Water found inside Jinling. Police arrested Lo Jing Ang and Ong Chao Xiang and seized the drugs as well as the loudspeakers the defendants used to smuggle Happy Water into entertainment venues. Firearms and ammunition were also seized.

The men confessed to smuggling drugs into northeast Thailand from neighboring countries by hiding them in loudspeakers. Then they brought the drugs to “three or four” condos in Bangkok. The men admitted to mixing the drugs and distributing them at entertainment venues. However, they neither admitted nor denied selling Happy Water to Jinling Pub.

According to the police, Lo Jin Ang entered Thailand illegally almost 20 years ago. Over the years, Thai people have helped him rent accommodation and helped him get around and go unnoticed by the authorities. He never had a real profession in Thailand and has no relatives here, police said.

Regarding the Jinling drug raid, a police chief was removed from his post (a kind of slap on the wrist for the criminal police) for allegedly accepting bribes and allowing the nightclub to open and operate illegally. The place belonged to a Chinese national.

The defendants face a heavy prison sentence in Thailand for their crimes. However, it will be much worse for them if they are extradited to Singapore for trial, where drug trafficking is a crime punishable by death.

Parker allegedly beat Mr Pleasure to the head at the local Pier nightclub in April this year.

The multi-instrumentalist, who has also played with Michael Jackson, moved to the area two years ago as his wife grew up there.

At the time of the alleged attack, he said: “It was a deeply moving experience.

“My wife and I have a baby girl, so we feel we have a responsibility to speak out against racism when we see and hear it, in the hope that our daughter doesn’t have to endure this kind of abuse in his life.”

The star’s wife, Kedma Macias, said he came home “very upset” from the club after being slapped on the back of the head and racially slurred.

She said: “What he went through was absolutely disgusting. As a black man from America, he’s been through this stuff all his life.”

However, the couple thanked the local community and club bouncers for their support.

They also thanked the police for calling the incident a hate crime.

MyHouse nightclub will reopen for reunion weekend

Owner Dan Rader wants Columbia to come home, or rather MyHouse.

After renovations that promise to double the size of the Seventh Street nightclub, MyHouse will reopen on Friday, just in time for the University of Missouri homecoming weekend.

“We will be welcoming our guests beginning October 21 to experience the energetic new atmosphere we have created in our indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces,” Rader said in a press release.

Opened in 2016, then closed in 2020 for a pandemic hiatus, the club underwent approximately $7 million in renovations and additions, according to the statement. New features include a “two-story addition to the main building with a rooftop terrace and retractable exterior wall that allows for indoor and outdoor live musical performances of ‘theatre-in-the-round’ from the stage,” the post notes state. .

Lighting, sound and other audiovisual elements have been updated, and a mural by artist Alex Eickhoff of area landmarks colors the walkway wall near the site’s entrance, adds the press release.

Before officially reopening, Rader and Co. hosted an outdoor concert series this summer featuring recognizable electronic and country music acts; the shows caused logistical problems from the neighboring State Historical Society of Missouri on street closures and access.

Set in post-World War I London, Atkinson’s final film follows a nightclub owner

“Sanctuaries of Cheerfulness” by Kate Atkinson (Penguin Random House/TNS)

Wonderfully balanced between the literary bravery of novels like “Life After Life” and the more mundane but expansive pleasures of its Jackson Brodie mysteries, Kate Atkinson’s “Shrines of Gaiety” puts an irresistible cast of characters into an intriguing, convoluted plot unfolding in the afterworld. War I London exudes a Shakespearean air of ancient enchantment about the proceedings, and keeps you guessing until the end – even if something tells you it will be fine. Most.

Nellie Coker – apparently modeled after Kate Meyrick, for many years the ‘Queen of Soho clubland’ – is the operator of a series of nightclubs that mix London’s underworld and glitz, and the fierce matriarch of London. ‘a large brood which is often variously involved in it. harmful companies.

Chief Inspector John Frobisher is the “new broom” brought from Scotland Yard to clean up the criminal underpinnings of Ma Coker’s business, his job – to say nothing of the story – hugely complicated by all the devious doings of his underlings.

Miss Gwendolyn Kelling, a former Yorkshire librarian who served as a nurse during the war and whose mother lost the family fortune and then died, has come to London to find a friend’s runaway 14-year-old daughter – a search that brings her into contact with Inspector Frobisher, who is inspired to employ her as a spy in Nellie Coker’s orbit.

And Freda, this 14-year-old runaway, after a taste of the theater in the provinces and a nasty advance from her mother’s “costumer”, came to London, trailing her “slow” friend Florence (also wanted by Miss Kelling), to make a fortune on stage.

The story is such a complex web of devious plots and double-deals that it’s sometimes hard to tell who went out to get who and what the game is, even if that only makes it more fun. The spell from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” which hovers over the drama (this is Miss Kelling’s favorite play, and is apparently performed impromptu in Oxford during her visit with Inspector Frobisher, among other references – he there’s even a donkey!) is kind of reassuring. And through it all, the “silent magnificence” of Gwendolyn (per Detective Frobisher) is a stabilizing influence, while brave Freda animates an otherwise sinister appeal of lost, abused and rejected girls, whose bodies continue to be fished out of the Thames. .

Atkinson’s narrative panache is somewhat historical – the brands, the trams, the flavors and the names – and abreast, the storytelling of his time and ours, scenes that unfold only to go back and forth. filled with a new perspective, characters annotating their own thoughts. And often it’s just plain funny, especially within the confines of the Coker family, which is funny in the least sentimental way.

This is storytelling at its best – entertaining, moving, surprising – as faithful to the rich tradition of Dickens as it is to the demands of our times.

‘You Gotta Love What You Do’: FIU Students Get Real-Life Advice From Miami Hospitality Entrepreneur David Grutman, DJ Khaled | FIU News

Nearly 400 students arrived early at the Biscayne Bay campus for what you might have thought was a new sneaker outing or the opening of a new nightclub. It was the first day of FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management’s most popular class – The David Grutman Experience: The Class, taught by famed Miami restaurateur and nightlife entrepreneur David Grutman.

The excitement started when students checked in and received a bag full of exclusive merchandise and merchandise, including a branded class shirt made by renowned streetwear designer Warren Lotas.

Each student received a “swag bag” filled with exclusive products.

Once inside, dim lights, music and a trendy video set the mood, followed by a warm and very enthusiastic welcome from FIU Dean of Hospitality, Michael Cheng.

Once onstage, Grutman shared his class goals: to “inspire” students to get into the hospitality industry, “boost” their entrepreneurial spirit, and help them “apply” the tools to anything. they choose to do.

Then he shared his own journey. Grutman began his hospitality career as a bartender at a restaurant in the Aventura Mall. As he rose through the ranks, he said one of the most important lessons he learned in the business world was the importance of building your network, which can happen while you’re still in school. .

“The way you keep growing and growing your network is by connecting people and stepping back,” Grutman said.

grutman-2022-class-9.jpeg
Lots of hands up to ask questions of Professor Dave Grutman.

Grutman is the owner of Groot Hospitality, which owns restaurants Komodo, Papi Steak, Swan, The Key Club, Gekkō and Strawberry Moon. His businesses also include the LIV nightclubs in Fontainebleau and Story, and The Goodtime Hotel on South Beach. LIV has been around for 14 years, which Grutman says are “dog years” in the nightlife business. His hotel group is worth millions and continues to grow. He shared with the students his next ventures, which include a resort and out-of-this-world plans to be the first hotel group to have a restaurant in space.

This is the third time he has taught the course at FIU Hospitality. The last time was in March 2021 when the class had to be socially distanced due to the pandemic. Now the inscription is triple the size.

What is his secret to success? He credits his team, which he brought with him to class. The entire group, from the executive chef to the legendary club promoter Purple Miami, rose to say hello.

Her other secret to living the dream? “I love what I do. I wake up, I go to sleep thinking about what I’m going to do tomorrow, and I wake up excited in the morning to do it. Let me say it again, I love what I do. Let me repeat myself, you gotta love what you do,” Grutman said.

For about an hour and a half, Grutman spoke with the students and conducted a Q&A (question and answer) session. Then, he made a surprise announcement and welcomed his friend and Grammy Award-winning artist DJ Khaled to the stage.

DJ Khaled told the students he remembered being in their shoes when he started and offered this advice: “I promise you…you stay focused on this path and I will promise you… .you will get everything you work hard for. I am living proof.

After Grutman and DJ Khaled talked about their families and the ups and downs of life, another surprise guest took the stage, the former 90s Bad Boys rapper and now candidate for Prime Minister of Belize , Moses Barrow, aka Shyne.

Throughout the night, the students cheered enthusiastically, while taking photos and videos. Emotions in the room spilled over onto social media with posts like, “I had to hold back my tears tonight. Tonight was iconic! said @gemarinok and “Thank you for this amazing opportunity to learn from the best!” says @komi.lya.

Three hours and hundreds of reposts later, the class consensus seems to be “Looking forward to the next lesson” – said @moroojhamed.

Myth Live nightclub could be demolished in Maplewood

A developer is looking to demolish Myth in favor of a 241-unit apartment complex, subject to city council approval.

MAPLEWOOD, Minnesota – The Myth Live nightclub may not be staying in Maplewood much longer.

After the city approved $6.4 million in tax increase funding Monday night, council will soon consider allowing a developer to demolish Myth in favor of a 241-unit apartment building on the site. This decision should be made by the end of the calendar year.

Patrick Brama, who attended the meeting on Monday as a representative of Enclave Companies, described the project as a “market-priced, four-story apartment complex.” He said a purchase agreement is in place and Enclave plans to close the property early next year, clearing the way for demolition and construction.

“We think this is a great opportunity for people who want to balance work and private life,” Brama said. “It is easy to walk with all kinds of attractions nearby.”

Maplewood Mayor Marylee Abrams has publicly stated her support for the project, as part of the city’s vision for the redevelopment of the North End near the Maplewood Mall.

“I think it’s absolutely essential,” Abrams said. “It will create jobs. It will bring people for retail and restaurants there. It will create some synergy.”

Myth Live, meanwhile, seems determined to fight the scrapping process.

Bill Skolnick, an attorney for Myth, said in an email that he didn’t have a copy of the purchase agreement calling for the nightclub to be demolished. He also emailed KARE 11 a copy of Myth’s lease with owner Lighthouse Management Group, Inc., showing a clause regarding a 10-year extension option. “The Landlord and the Tenant agree,” the lease states, “that so long as the Tenant does not breach the Lease, the term of the Lease shall be extended until December 31, 2033 (“Extension Period”).” Lighthouse Management did not return a message seeking comment.

Kim Brokke, a representative for Myth, told KARE 11 in an email that “we have 11 years of lease options that we will exercise.”

This is just the latest legal battle involving Myth, which unsuccessfully sued the city of Maplewood in 2019 over a course of action that required management to follow certain rules to retain a liquor license. Before the pandemic led to reduced events, Maplewood police said they responded to more than 200 calls to Myth between 2017 and 2019, including one person with a neck injury.

Andy Horng, who promoted events at Myth for around a decade through a third-party contractor, defended the club in an interview with KARE 11. He said he felt safer at Myth than in downtown Minneapolis clubs and called Myth “like a tome second home.”

“I speak on behalf of Asian Americans, that’s where we all go, that’s Myth nightclub. That’s where we’re going to have fun,” Horng said. “It’s going to hurt. It hits your heart. If we lose Myth, we have no place to relax.”

If the council approves the plan, Enclave could open the new apartments in April 2023, followed by around two years of construction.

6ix9ine Addresses reports he was attacked at Dubai nightclub

6ix9ine was trending on social media on Friday after getting involved in a fight at the Soho Palm Club in Dubai.

According to Instagram account Hollywood Unlocked, 6ix9ine was allegedly attacked after a DJ refused to play his music. “We don’t like snitches,” the DJ said. “No way am I playing a snitch song.” Footage from the incident shows a group of men jumping 6ix9ine, while another clip shows the Brookyln rapper restrained as he punches what appears to be the DJ.

However, 6ix9ine says Hollywood Unlocked got the story wrong. Shortly after the videos were posted, Tekashi jumped into the comments section, writing, “Get the good news. I understand. You’re crazy, I’m still alive…it’s cool, sit down and wait.

In another comment, 6ix9ine claimed the DJ “smoked.” “I love how you write a whole story…explain what happened and make it another headline,” he wrote. “This 69 PR hates working overtime. DJ got smoked.

Plans underway to raze Maplewood’s Myth nightclub and build apartments

Myth Live, the Maplewood concert venue that has been embroiled in a legal battle with the city after a series of police calls, overdoses and violence, could be torn down and replaced with apartments under a new vision for the north of the city.

Fargo, ND-based developer Enclave Companies has entered into a purchase agreement to acquire the venue at 3090 Southlawn Dr. near the Maplewood Mall. The company plans to raze the building – a repurposed shoe store built in the late 1990s – and build a 241-unit apartment building at market price.

“I think it’s just the stimulus we need in the North End to get things done. I think it would be a wonderful first big project,” Maplewood Mayor Marylee Abrams said during a meeting to review the plan. “It will be very good for the future development of the North End.”

Enclave said it needed the city to provide $6.4 million in tax increment funding (TIF) over 16 years to cover a portion of the site’s redevelopment costs. City council will consider the request at Monday’s meeting, said assistant director of community development Michael Martin.

The council, acting as the city’s economic development authority, got a first glimpse of the proposed deal in late July and seemed optimistic about the project. Outside financial consultancy Ehlers analyzed the project and recommended TIF terms, which will provide an 8.4% return on investment for the developer, according to city documents. Enclave originally requested 23 years of TIF support.

According to a city staff report, the four-story building will include bachelor, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units and underground parking. It will also include a rooftop terrace, solar panels, community room, wellness center, car wash, dog wash and trail connections.

Patrick Brama, with Enclave, said as part of the agreement, the developer is giving up a 40-foot right-of-way on the east side of the property for a future road. Part of the TIF money will be used to build this road, he said.

“We worked closely with the city on this project,” Brama said. “We’re going to be a community partner and we’re excited to help the city advance its vision and keep this area prosperous.”

Enclave did not disclose the purchase price amid the ongoing sale. Brama said land costs are higher than a typical apartment project because the site includes an existing business.

When complete, the building and property will have an estimated value of $54.5 million, according to city documents.

Myth executives did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The nightclub opened in 2005, closed four years later, and then reopened in 2011. The club has weathered a series of ownership changes – according to Ramsey County property records, ownership changed hands for the last time in 2015 when GFY Real Estate LLC acquired it for $3.6 million. .

The venue’s capacity is about 3,000 people, according to court documents. Before the pandemic, it operated 50 to 90 days a year. Its October calendar currently lists three events.

Myth’s relationship with city leaders began to deteriorate in 2019 after police responded to more than 250 police calls in two years, including a spate of drug overdoses and an outside shooting. of the site.

Frustrated Maplewood executives have demanded the site comply with a stricter set of rules to retain its liquor license. Myth sued the city over the new rules, but a trial court and appeals court ruled in the city’s favor.

Molly-Mae Hague caught falling asleep at a nightclub on vacation with boyfriend Tommy Fury

But reality star Molly, 23, was desperate to close her eyes after a busy few days and enjoyed a nap in a nightclub on Saturday.

Known for her love of the blazer, Molly dressed down in a slate gray jacket with matching trousers as she opted for a smart and chic outfit.

She then captured their superb sushi dinner with picturesque plates of raw fish lined up next to a bottle of beer.

Her YouTube fans know Molly would prefer a night out anytime soon, but she surprised her by revealing she was spending the rest of the night at a club.

She appeared taken aback, confessing on her Instagram Stories: “When you should have been in bed four hours ago watching Shrek 2, but somehow you’re now in a club.

“Don’t count on me.”

Later in the early hours, she captured a clubber falling asleep as she joked, “Recognize that we are related.”

She then took the opportunity to rest her eyes too, adding in her caption: “I think so.”

Their trip comes after Molly pleaded with fans not to show up at her house and Tommy House wanting pictures with her in a scathing two-minute rant.

Speaking to YouTube on Wednesday afternoon, the 2019 Love Island finalist used the platform to beg children not to show up at her £3.5million mansion uninvited.

Tying her hair up in a bun, the 23-year-old began, “It’s not me who’s mean, it’s not me who’s awful.

“I don’t want a headline that says, ‘Molly-Mae won’t take pictures with fans.’

“But I’ll just say it once. If you know my address, if you know where I live, if you know where Tommy and I live, please don’t come ringing the doorbell. Please please.”

Molly then brushed off the parents of the children who recently drove them home, before warning: ‘There is a line drawn when it comes to the house.

Pointing her finger, she continued, “If you are the parents who drive your children on their birthdays or when they have a book they want me to sign and you know the address and you drive your child to come and see Tommy and me… I’m not sure.

“I have a lot to say. I’m not going to say it, but I’m not sure and it’s personally not a lesson I want to teach my child to make him think he’s okay.”

Bristol Motion nightclub defends decision to hold rave on day of royal funeral

A nightclub in Bristol has been criticized for hosting an all-night rave that ends on the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

The late monarch’s funeral will take place in London on Monday, September 19, with the day designated as an additional bank holiday in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

It means many things are set to close, including schools, nurseries and – controversially – food banks.

However, the Bristol Motion nightclub has defended its decision to go ahead with plans to hold a ‘free rave’ which starts at 8.00pm on Sunday and ends at 5.00am on Monday morning – well six hours before the start of the Queen’s funeral. .

The club announced plans for a “huge bank holiday banger” on Monday this week, and they hope to see hundreds of clubbers heading to their location to party the night away.

Not everyone is so happy about it, however, as some expressed disappointment, with others calling the event “tasteless”.

Now the organizers have released a statement defending their decision, while addressing some of the issues people might have.

A Motion spokesperson said: “We were scheduled to hold the Tokyo World Festival after-parties this week, however, due to the perfect Brexit and Covid-19 storm, First Bus has canceled scheduled transportation from Eastville Park instead. in BS2.

“In light of these cancellations, and with wages, rising electricity costs and multiple other factors of life in 2022, we felt we were unable to keep the site closed.

They added: “Like everyone else, we were truly saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 and wish the new King all the best in his new role.

The club also announced that there will be a minute’s silence before the start of the event at 8:00 p.m. inside and outside the club and “all staff and participants are asked to respect this decision”.

“We have already sought advice and understand that there are no restrictions on this public holiday.

“We, of course, 100% appreciate and are grateful for everyone’s support over the past few years and in the future,” the statement read.

A Motion participant, who wished to remain anonymous, said ITV News that they were disappointed with the nightclub’s decision.

They said: “I’m a bit disappointed that local nightclub Motion is having an event on Sunday to take advantage of the bank holiday on Monday – it’s a bit unpleasant,

“I am by no means a royalist, but when they rely on local support to plan the reduction and acts of servitude, it is beyond rude.

“I’m actually a staunch patron of them, but I’m shocked.”

Waterbury nightclub liquor license suspended and closed

WATERBURY, Conn. (WFSB) – A nightclub in Waterbury has had its liquor license permanently suspended and ordered to close.

It comes after several shootings occurred at the property, the most recent being a fatal shooting on Saturday.

The club is called the Litt Ultra Lounge on West Main Street.

This order was issued after the Waterbury Police Chief sent two letters to state officials urging them to suspend their license.

In those letters, Waterbury Police Chief Fernando Spagnolohe mentioned a shooting in February where the club’s security chief was shot dead.

Police say someone started shooting at the bar after a large group was kicked out.

24 casings were found outside.

The leader says the club was causing a lot of criminal activity in the area.

Then, last Saturday, Adam Bellamy, 38, was killed.

Two others were also shot and survived.

The chef added that “for the immediate surrounding community, gunfire occurring on the premises of Lit Ultra Lounge is a serious health and safety concern.”

Police also said they needed to increase patrols around the club area, pay unnecessary overtime and add officers to the area instead of other needed areas of the city.

The state says Litt Ultra Lounge must remain closed.

How the octogenarian brothers’ colorful posters went global

NEW YORK (AP) — For years, Miguel and Carlos Cevallos made a living drawing posters for neighborhood nightclubs, taco trucks and restaurants in Queens, painting business basements or on their tables and attracting customers by word of mouth.

Until an Instagram account changed a lot of things.

Now, hip ice cream parlors in Brooklyn and retro eateries in Manhattan are waiting their turn to get one of the brothers’ colorful signs. They are in demand in music stores in San Francisco, national restaurant chains, bars in Belgium and bakeries in South Korea.

It doesn’t matter that the brothers are over 80 or that both, born in Ecuador and raised in Colombia, speak limited English. They embraced their new clients and sketched all day in the Manhattan apartment they’ve shared for nearly 20 years.

“Fate is like that. Sometimes you find success later in life,” Carlos Cevallos said recently, sipping tea in an empty Manhattan restaurant. Dressed in suits and ties, as they are every day, the brothers shared a muffin.

Recent orders have come from a bagel shop in Manhattan’s Little Italy neighborhood, a newsstand in Manhattan’s West Village, an Oregon-based restaurant chain, and a burger shop. pop-up vegetarians in Los Angeles. NYCgo, the official city guide for tourists and New Yorkers, recently commissioned the brothers to design Queens’ iconic Unisphere, the giant metal globe built for the 1964 World’s Fair.

“They have a special touch, so nice and colorful,” said Marina Cortes, manager of West Village restaurant La Bonbonnière. The brothers “Breakfast all day!” sign is displayed on the restaurant terrace.

“Life without good is bad,” reads a poster the brothers designed for Van Leeuwen Ice Cream. “Special of the day. Choose two sandwiches and pay for both! reads another one they made for Regina’s Grocery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Made with acrylic paint, the playful and childish posters of the Cevallos brothers have large letters and a nostalgic air. Miguel draws and Carlos does the coloring, together creating about six posters a week.

The brothers receive five to twenty requests a week for their work.

The family moved from Ecuador to Colombia to follow an uncle who was a Catholic priest and worked in Bogota. Accustomed to drawing since their childhood, Carlos, Miguel and their older brother, Victor, opened an art studio and a poster shop in the Chapinero district of Bogota.

Victor moved to New York in 1969 and Carlos joined in 1974. For years they worked in a studio apartment in Times Square until rent increases prompted a move to Queens.

In the 1980s, they drew posters advertising performances at a club in Queens called La Esmeralda.

“They would pay so little per poster. It was sad,” Carlos said. The posters featured artists such as Mexican singer Armando Manzanero and Chilean Lucho Gatica.

Miguel, meanwhile, cared for their mother until her death at age 101. He moved to New York in 2005 to join his siblings. Victor, mentor to his younger brothers, died in 2012.

Eventually, Aviram Cohen, who builds and installs audio-visual art in museums, saw the brothers’ posters in Queens and tracked them down to request one for his wife’s new yoga studio. In 2018, he opened their Instagram account, @cevallos_bros, which became a lifeline for the brothers after the coronavirus pandemic.

“I did it out of admiration for their work, and after meeting them I understood that all of this would go away. Most businesses would throw the posters away,” said Cohen, 42. “I was convinced that different types of people and subcultures could appreciate their art.

He was right. The account now has over 25,000 followers and has become an archive of their work, as well as a source of orders.

“I love their story,” said Happy David, who manages the Instagram accounts for La Bonbonnière and Casa Magazines, a Manhattan newsstand for which she also commissioned the brothers’ work. It reminds him of the signs seen in his native Philippines.

In a digital world, “a lot of people are going back to crafting,” David said. “We want to connect and we want to feel that there are hands that made them.”

When asked if they plan to retire soon, the Cevallos brothers answer with a quick “no”.

Where do they get their energy from?

“We eat healthily,” they answer with a smile.

Downtown shooting victim sues nightclub and parking service for damages

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The woman who was paralyzed in a shooting in a downtown Fort Myers parking lot last month is suing both the nightclub and the owners of the parking lot where she claims a confrontation between her and the accused shooter took place.

Court documents show the victim is suing Premium Parking Service, LLC and the operators of The Edge nightclub on Hendry Street for an undisclosed sum. They allege an “obligation and duty to exercise due diligence to protect the public” which has not been confirmed.

The victim’s one-year-old son is named co-plaintiff, with the victim claiming she can no longer care for the child.

Attorney Joe North writes in the lawsuit filed Wednesday that there were no security guards present at the garage operated by PPS at the time of the Aug. 14 shooting. They claim the incident happened at a time when many people are leaving nightclubs in the area and hanging out in various parking lots, as well as on nearby streets.

The Edge is being prosecuted because, according to the victim, an altercation with the alleged shooter Jasmine Battle started inside.

A probable cause affidavit from investigators says the victim and a group of four, including Battle, got into an argument over a Facebook post the victim had previously made.

Lawyers for the victim believe the club should have ensured the two women left separately and should have called the police when the altercation began.

North says there’s evidence the battle was “celebrated” in the parking lot after the shooting for three minutes, saying it’s proof there was no security during the incident.

Investigators found a Ministry of Children and Families document on the parking lot floor with Battle’s name on it.

She surrendered to Lee County authorities and has since pleaded not guilty to aggravated battery and weapons charges.

Cham-pain: Vancouver nightclubs could run dry with premium booze

If you’re planning on hitting a nightclub or bar this weekend, you might be in for some good old-fashioned beer, as high-end liquor options might be in short supply in Vancouver.

The strike by the British Columbia General Employees Union (BCGEU) has been in effect for about two weeks, and pressure measures have affected the British Columbia liquor distribution branch (LDB).

Although the impacts have been felt the hardest by the cannabis sector, supply issues could impact operations in venues such as high-end bars and nightclubs as early as this weekend.

Daily Hive spoke to Jeff Guinard of the Alliance of Beverage Licensees (ABLE BC) in British Columbia, who says the group is already seeing big holes in the shelves.

Guinard suggests that products like premium vodka and champagne are hard to come by, which is a huge deal for places like nightclubs. He thinks the situation is similar for bars.

“They will have to steer people towards beer,” Guinard told The Daily Hive.

Otherwise, these people will just have to find other things to do instead of heading to higher-end alcohol options, which will have a huge impact on the business of these Vancouver sites and probably other establishments of the province.

Guinard fears that things will get really bad if the industrial action extends beyond the next Labor Day, but due to a media blackout, the BC government and the BCGEU are not speaking out. not publicly on the matter.

We spoke to Ritish Maisuria, a local promoter of events at venues like nightclubs.

“It’s difficult because some of our managers go to three or four different liquor stores every day to try to find what’s left. And for a club like ours, where people are used to high-end brands, eventually we will have to sell them off-brand alcohol. We haven’t had to do that yet,” Maisuria said.

He added that if the strike does not end soon, that will definitely be a problem.

Daily Hive also heard from Ian Tostensen of the BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association. Things are looking a bit more optimistic for restaurants at the moment.

“We’ll have enough product to get through one way or another,” Tostensen said.

“I think the moment of truth will definitely come next week.”

He added that supplies are not replenished and the middle of next week will start to be a problem.

On the BCGEU side, the most recent update of the union is that it has accepted the BC government’s offer to return to the bargaining table, with the logistics still being confirmed.

Long Beach Council Denies JP23 Nightclub’s Business License Application, Reverses Hearing Officer’s Decision

The Long Beach City Council voted unanimously to overturn a decision by a hearing officer allowing nightclub JP23 to do business in the city and ultimately denied the owner’s business application Tuesday night.

The decision is the final act in the saga of JP23 in Long Beach, after nearly four years of renovations, landlord requests and appeals, which coincided with security breaches and non-compliance issues from the disco.

The denial letter, which was released March 14 and confirmed by the board on Tuesday, said “the plaintiff has consistently refused to comply with the rules and regulations of the City of Long Beach.”

During the two years that JP23 was in residence, there were eight criminal citations, two security breaches, four letters notifying the company of non-compliant activity, and one cease and desist order. Commercial Services Manager Amanda Hall also cited residents’ complaints of music disruptions, fights, drunk people in public, parking and other instances that resulted in more than 30 calls to the police department. from Long Beach.

On May 25, a hearing officer presided over the case for five days and ultimately ruled in favor of JP23 owner Jacob Poozhikala. The hearing officer’s closing statement acknowledged “the numerous past violations and citations” and said that “the plain language of Long Beach Municipal Code 3.80.421.5 simply does not contemplate that these past violations and citations be taken into account in the refusal or approval of the request”.

The city council hired independent outside legal counsel to preside over city staff’s decision before giving its final say. Best & Krieger’s Christopher Pisano advised the board to deny the hearing officer’s decision and uphold the denial of JP23’s commercial license.

“What he [the hearing officer] was basically saying that the history of violations should be ignored,” Pisano said. “That struck me as odd, and we looked at your code very carefully.”

Attorney Christopher Pisano presented this slide of the hearing officer’s statement to Long Beach council members on August 23, 2022. (Long Beach City Council)

Owner Jacob Poozhikala was on hand to plead his case to the council and argue that “the city has bent over backwards” to prevent his business from succeeding.

“I put $3 million into this place…and a lynching mob was created to make sure I didn’t open this business,” Poozhikala said. “No one could tell me why I couldn’t get a business license; I need transparency.

Employees at the Long Beach and Fullerton sites responded to public comments to vouch for Poozhikala’s character, while concerned residents, mostly women, cited the nightclub’s history of drug and rape incidences.

A timeline of JP23’s time in Long Beach

Poozhikala applied for a site-to-site, person-to-person transfer of a liquor license in January 2018 to open a nightclub in downtown Long Beach at 110 E Broadway. He said he wanted the venue to be “a little house of the blues” and quickly invested over $1 million renovating the space in the first two years.

In August 2021, a woman claimed to have been sexually assaulted in downtown Fullerton. It was not the first time JP23 was related to an incident of sexual assault, and Poozhikala insisted that was what ultimately led to his denial of a business license in Long Beach.

On September 1, 2021, the city began receiving complaints from residents that JP23 was advertising to hold a grand opening party on September 3-4. At the time, JP23 had yet to submit a full business license application and the location was still under construction. Hall called the situation “very unusual” and said several departments had contacted Poozhikala.

Poozhikala said he was publicizing the event in hopes that the license would be approved by then. Once he realized that wasn’t possible, he said he canceled the event and “took the $60,000 cost” of entertainment fees he had already paid. City staff confirmed that JP23’s social media accounts announced a change of venue to the Fullerton site.

On Sept. 3, the Long Beach Fire Department and LBPD responded to a call to JP23 “just before 4 a.m.” for a false fire alarm, according to Hall. City staff say the grand opening event took place despite warnings to the company.

On September 16, Poozhikala submitted a completed business license application to the city. The following day, the club received a cease and desist order for all public use and two violations for occupancy without approval. JP23 responded by submitting a temporary occupation permit on September 24, which was granted to them on October 11.

From October 2021 to February 2022, there were eight misdemeanor citations, two letters from the city, and two virtual meetings held with Poozhikala on “process and entertainment licensing regulations.”

A meeting in November granted JP23 a conditional commercial license, which Hall said was “an act of good faith to help this company become part of the community.”

Long Beach Municipal Code 3.80.421.1 states that during the 180-day period that a conditional license is active, “the applicant may be disqualified for failing to comply with applicable laws and regulations at any time.”

The complete Long Beach Municipal Code 3.80.421.1 (B) which was presented by Christopher Pisano to council on August 23, 2022. (Long Beach City Council)

Poozhikala council claimed the conditional license was outside the scope of the city’s director of financial management, who it said should “perform the ministerial function of issuing the license”.

He argued that since JP23 had received approval from the planning, construction, fire and health departments, the CFO had no reason to deny approval. He cited Long Beach Municipal Code 3.80.110, which states that the role of the chief financial officer “is not intended to be regulatory.”

The city rejected JP23’s business license application on March 14 and received an appeal from Poozhikala on March 23. Between the time of the appeal and the hearing, the city conducted an inspection of JP23 and found an unauthorized mezzanine and stage, which they were advised to stop using.

In April, the board referred to a hearing officer, who issued its final decision on July 15 to license the company. Pisano’s independent report concluded that the city should reject the hearing officer’s findings.

Poozhikala asked the board to give him a trial period to do business in Long Beach to “prove how great we are for the city.”

“You are here for working class people, you know how stressful it is to have 80 people who don’t know if they have a job or not,” Poozhikala said.

The board voted unanimously to reject JP23’s application.

Arizona nightclub wins $1.6 million in COVID-19 lockdown lawsuit

The operators of a Tucson, Arizona, nightclub have won a $1.6 million settlement against the owner who barred them from their business during the pandemic.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that a Pima County Superior Court jury sided with the Congress Street Clubs, the owners of the Zen Rock nightclub.

On August 5, they awarded the landlords over $1 million to cover the value of the remaining terms of the lease and over $500,000 for the cost of renovations and equipment.

A lawyer for the owner declined to comment to the newspaper on the decision or a possible appeal.

In the lawsuit, the owners say they closed in March 2020 in accordance with Gov. Doug Ducey’s executive order requiring bars and restaurants to close. They were unable to reopen for several months due to social distancing restrictions, staff with COVID-19, and then another shutdown in June 2020.

Adam Peterson, a lawyer for the Congress Street Clubs, said they weren’t obligated to pay rent during that time under a “force majeure” clause in their lease. This clause relieves tenants inconvenienced by acts beyond their control such as government restrictions.

The owner had argued that the clause was too vague. In July 2020, the owner locked out the owners of the club and seized $150,000 worth of equipment.

The club, known as The Red Door behind Villa Road in Lozells, had no planning permission, was not registered as a business and had no music license or permission to sell alcohol.

West Midlands Police said they received numerous complaints about the room being messy and loud music disturbing neighbors and disturbing young children.

Violent incidents included a man stabbed more than 10 times in a fight in October last year, a man with a knife wound to his leg in June and a major disturbance in August where glasses were thrown.

There were a lot of complaints from locals about the loud music. Photo: West Midlands Police

Police intelligence also suggested the venue was linked to gang activity, used to sell drugs and gunshots were also heard inside.

The local ward team had worked with Birmingham City Council to build a case against site management and won a closure order at Birmingham Magistrates Court on August 15.

Inspector Nick Hill said: ‘This will be a huge relief to local residents whose lives have been marred by the anti-social behavior and crime this place attracts.

“Clubs are bound by strict regulations to ensure customer safety, such as security, CCTV and staff training, and disruption is kept to a minimum for people living nearby.

“The main building was only approved for storage purposes, but there was also a covered outdoor seating area, toilet block and kitchen. None of them had a building permit.

“We have obtained closure for three months initially, but we will ask for permanent closure and possible demolition.

“Local police teams are working with our Gangs unit to actively target anyone we suspect may be linked to violence and organized crime. We regularly organize law enforcement patrols to disrupt gang activity and operations to target people causing harm in our communities.

A utility company was also called in to secure the site and deemed the wiring on the site to be a potential life hazard.

Cllr John Cotton, Cabinet Member for Social Justice, Community Safety and Equalities at Birmingham City Council, said: ‘We support this police action because unlicensed premises are, by definition, unregulated.

“We know there have been significant concerns about these premises, so hopefully this shows that we can work in partnership to keep our communities safe.

“We will continue to work with West Midlands Police to address issues relating to illegal and unlicensed activity, anti-social behavior and public safety and ensure that bars and clubs in Birmingham, as well as city streets, are safe for all their visitors.

Former Geronimos nightclub in Barrow being demolished

A FORMER nightclub that has been closed for almost 30 years is being demolished due to its ‘unsafe condition’.

The former Geronimos nightclub, which adjoins the Barrow Raiders’ Craven Park ground, is being demolished due to security risks.

The nightclub was closed in 1995 and three fires made the building unsafe, leading to its partial demolition in 2015.

Former Raiders general manager Steve Johnson bought the nightclub in 1986 and it became known for its dance parties called Yummy.

Mr Johnson resigned as chief executive in 1995 after a six-year reign following fierce protests over his plan to demolish the Raiders’ ground and turn it into a bingo hall.

Demolition work started on the old Geronimos building in February 2015.

And seven years later, efforts have been made to tear down the rest of the dance hall after it was bought out by the Raiders in November last year.

Barrow Raiders chairman Steve Neale has revealed the club’s future plans for the soon-to-be vacant space.

He said: “It’s dangerous in the current state it is in. He was bought by the club from the previous owner in November last year. He is dangerous in his current state and had the potential to fall.

“So we decided to demolish it, which will also give us the possibility of using the space in the future.

“It’s a great space – we may be looking for community use like a new ladies’ changing room, but at the moment we are not financially able to rebuild it into anything else.

“The first step was to take him down and we are currently in the process of doing that at the moment. We’ll take care of the rest later.

“We would potentially like to make it a community facility – there is the possibility of building a ladies’ changing room, which is an option. We would like to use the space for something for the community in the future.

Bar owners grappling with balloon insurance costs months after reopening – Kamloops News

Sydney Chisholm

Things aren’t the way they used to be in bars and nightclubs across Kamloops, and the COVID-19 pandemic is only partly to blame.

Nightclub owners, who are now facing rising insurance costs, say they have noticed a change in their clubs since they fully reopened earlier this year.

“It’s very different, people [are] much more respectful,” said Dino Bernardo, co-owner of the Commodore in Castanet Kamloops.

“It’s very different from what it was before – it’s not necessarily better or worse. It’s just that the narrative has changed a bit.”

Some in the industry say there was a decline in the popularity of nightclubs a few years before the pandemic hit, but Blue Grotto owner Pup Johnston says COVID-19 changed all that .

“Covid was like a shot in the arm for the industry. It was like we pressed a super reset button. And what’s happening now is we’re seeing people going out and enjoying clubs nightclubs that have never had one before,” Johnston said, adding that physical distancing meant people missed a crowded dance floor.

“They want love and touch, squeeze, you know? They want to meet strangers, they want to have the opportunity to bump into someone, to share a dance floor with someone, even if you don’t dance together — you dance with your group of friends, I dance with my group of friends, at some point we’re going to turn around and there’s going to be high fives and all ‘groups are awesome’.

Despite the resurgence in popularity and the lifting of pandemic restrictions, nightclubs still face obstacles when it comes to managing and opening new venues.

“It’s hard to open a nightclub these days, really hard,” Johnston said.

“Like alcohol liability insurance is right next door. It’s ridiculous. It’s up 500% over COVID, and that really makes it cost prohibitive to open a new club – very, very cost prohibitive.

While Bernardo said the Commodore is doing well, he worries what the drastic increases in overhead will do to the industry, because it’s not just insurance that’s gone up.

“There would be shortages in the supply chain of certain liquors that we can’t get sometimes, the cost of fruit for drinks has gone up significantly,” he explained.

“I’m scared, you know, that’s what we’re going through now. What will it look like in five months, six months, a year? Will that change? Or will it get worse?”

But on the other hand, owners can only raise prices so much before customers are willing to pay it, Bernardo said.

“Our prices have been similar to what they always have been, even when we reopened,” the Commodore owner said.

“There was a marginal increase, but it was just that the cost of insurance skyrocketed and we have to make up for that.”

The cost of alcohol liability has more than tripled in recent years, and a major contributing factor to the inflated price is the fact that many insurance companies have pulled out of the alcohol game.

“There are many providers around the world that offer alcohol liability, but not as many as before,” Paul Ross, broker at Emsland Insurance, told Castanet Kamloops.

“I think it has to do with risk and with our litigious society and people suing for many different things. Insurance companies have therefore decided not to consider this as the risks they must defend. »

He added that on top of that, insurance companies were still trying to recover from the hit of the pandemic on the economy.

“We also had what is called a tough market in the insurance industry. It’s been three years since the insurance companies have been really correcting what’s going on,” he explained.

“We also have more and more people who want to sue in Canada, which creates more costs, we have social inflation, which relates to you know … the law of people — they get drunk and they slip by land, and they want to sue the owner, the tenant, the city [and] again and again. Our society and our habits have therefore definitely changed, as has our general orientation, which negatively affects insurance companies.

Soaring insurance costs could cause some bars to close and deter other potential owners from entering the industry, Ross said.

“I think what would happen is that the cost would be prohibitive. I mean, that’s what’s happening now,” Ross said.

“The cost of this equipment is so prohibitive. How can a small business survive spending so much money on insurance? So, in essence, he may have already done so.

Ross said the potential solution is quite simple.

“Take more responsibility for your own actions,” he said.

Shooting nightclub closed 30 days

PHUKET: The nightlife spot where a sword-wielding man was shot dead by a pub security guard last week has been closed for 30 days for late trading.

The official notice was served on Friday (August 5), with the closure order in effect until September 3. According to the ordinance, the place “is considered a place where illegal acts and behavior are contrary to public order or morality. ”

The venue was eventually identified by Phuket officials on Friday as ‘Sod’ (which depending on the context can mean ‘fresh’, ‘single’ or ‘live’, as in ‘live music’), located at 445/ 1 Phuket Rd, Talad Yai, Phuket Town. The venue was previously known as Nai Mueang Phuket Pub and Karaoke Bar, located opposite Phuket Customs on Phuket Rd, just 200 meters from Phuket Immigration.

While the order was signed by Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew, the announcement marking the shutdown order listed more than a dozen high-ranking local officers involved in the investigation, including officers senior police.

The closure order also followed the site operator being given four days to try to explain why the site was open so late.

Initial reports said police were called to the scene at 5:50 a.m., but official reports later said the shooting happened around 5 a.m.

Yet according to the announcement made by Phuket officials last Friday, the statement made to officials by the site operator indicates that the incident happened shortly after 4am.

According to the venue operator, patrons were outside the venue waiting for heavy rains to subside to return home. Apparently they had been waiting for hours.

At around 4am, 27-year-old Phuket Town resident Traitaewit ‘Got’ Chindamaikul attacked a group with a sword after an altercation with a woman at the pub. A person was seriously injured in a finger, said the operator of the site, not identified by officials.

In response, pub security guard Chaiwat ‘Od’ Chuwong, 35, drew his Glock 9mm handgun and shot Mr Traitaewit once in the chest, killing him. Traitaewit’s body was found next to his white pick-up truck in the parking lot, more than 20 yards from the front of the club. Bloodstains were on the side of the van showing that he had fallen there.

Mr. Chaiwat waited for police at the scene and immediately returned the handgun used in the shooting.

Phuket officials’ announcement last Friday said Mr Chaiwat was not allowed to carry a firearm at the scene.

However, it has not been confirmed what charges, if any, he will face for the transgression.

Officials did not confirm what charges, again, if any, Mr. Chaiwat would face for the fatal shooting.

More than a week after the shooting, aside from their initial reports on August 1, Phuket City Police and Phuket Provincial Police have yet to make any public statements regarding their investigation into the shooting.

The licensing review is for DTour, which the club owners say was the old name of the venue. It was due to be considered by Sheffield Council’s licensing sub-committee on Monday August 8, but the owners said they have now been told the hearing will not take place until the end of the month.

Restaurant guild leader Jesus Rivera shot dead outside nightclub he owned in Acapulco, Mexico

The head of the restaurants, bars and nightclubs guild in the Mexican resort town of Acapulco was shot dead on Sunday, the district attorney’s office said.

Jesus Rivera was killed in the early hours of the morning outside a nightclub he owned, after unknown assailants opened fire on him and then fled, State authorities in the southern region of Guerrero said.

“The prosecution has opened an investigation against those responsible for the crime of aggravated homicide,” said a statement from the agency.

The attack happened at the start of the summer holiday season, one of the busiest times of the year for the city, with tourists flocking to the area’s pristine beaches.

Recent months have seen at least three attacks on nightclubs in Acapulco, local media reported.

In April, at least three people were killed in a shooting and subsequent pursuit by police officers at a beachfront restaurant in Acapulco. Video broadcast on social networks and Youtube showed people running on the beach as gunshots rang out.

This shooting occurred just days after the severed heads of six men were discovered on top of a Volkswagen in the town of Chilapa de Alvarez, which is also in the state of Guerrero.

Guerrero, on the Pacific coast, is one of the most violent states in Mexico due to the presence of criminal gangs and drug trafficking.

Mexico, hit by a spiral of violence linked to organized crime, has recorded more than 340,000 violent deaths since December 2006, when a controversial military operation against drugs was launched.

6 people escape fire at adult nightclub near Churchill Downs | New

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Six people escaped a fire early Monday morning at a Louisville nightclub near Churchill Downs.

The fire in the two-story, 9,500-square-foot building was reported just before 6 a.m. at Showgirls nightclub in the 3400 block of Taylor Boulevard, according to Major Bobby Cooper, fire department battalion chief of Louisville.

Cooper said crews were sent to the scene after “calls from passers-by who saw the fire in the building”. Crews arrived on the scene within two minutes “and found heavy fire coming from what appeared to be the attic. We assume that in all likelihood that is where the fire originated.”

Video and images provided by the Louisville Fire Department showed flames shooting from the roof of the structure before dawn.

Firefighters found six people inside, who were able to get out of the building on their own, Cooper said.

“We don’t even know if they knew the fire was burning at the time,” he said.

Cooper wasn’t sure who was in the building or why they were there in the early hours.

Once the occupants were safely outside, the crews moved into a defensive attack. Cooper said standard procedure is to search for people inside burning structures, even if they are declared vacant.

“We always assume there are occupants inside a building,” Cooper said. “So even when a building is deemed vacant … you have homeless populations seeking shelter inside vacant buildings, so we initiate these search and rescue missions, regardless of the state of the building. “

It took 30 firefighters about an hour and 15 minutes to bring the blaze under control, according to a post on the Louisville Fire Department Facebook page.

It’s not yet clear whether the building will be considered a total loss, but Cooper said it had “extensive damage” and it may have been two or three different buildings in the past.

Cooper said the cause of the fire has not yet been determined and lightning has not been ruled out as thunderstorms moved through the area overnight. The arson unit is investigating.

“They’re looking at all possibilities, so in addition to surveillance footage, and interviewing bystanders and property representatives, they’ll also be looking at weather conditions and potential lightning strikes,” Cooper said.

LG&E crews were called to the scene to shut off power to the building to ensure the safety of firefighters.

New student apartments under construction in the former nightclub Images

CONSTRUCTION work continues on a former nightclub in the city which is being converted into student accommodation.

The former site of Images Nightclub, demolished at the end of last year, is being converted into 83 student apartments by Rengen Developments.

Rengen took over the project from Thorneloe, which originally began demolishing the building in 2021.

The new building can now be seen beginning to take shape as work continues on the site, which was first used 150 years ago.

Most of the exterior structure of the new building has been constructed, with work continuing inside and out.

BUILDING: The new building seen from the bridge of The Hive

The first demolition works of the Images nightclub began in November 2021.

It originally obtained planning permission in 2019 with the site reserved for housing.

The original 112-bed plan was changed to a nine-story 110-bed plan to make the accommodation building the same height as The Hive.

A later plan sought permission to construct a 100-bed building, but this was soon reduced to 89 beds before finally settling on an 83-bed building.

Dating back to the 1870s, the building had stood empty since its subsequent reincarnation when the Funk nightclub closed in February 2012.

In 2014, the city council’s licensing subcommittee gave the green light for the site to become a club named Mamma Jammas.

The club was aimed at over-30s and the plans were met with fierce opposition from West Mercia police who believed the venue would increase crime in the area.

Worcester News: CLOSED: Images before her demolitionCLOSED: Images before its demolition

The plans never materialized and the images remained a horror until the demolition plan was approved.

Given the location of the site, construction work must have been given longer than expected, with Thorneloe stating in 2021 that it should be finished sometime in 2023.

The building that became Images was built in the 1870s by an engineer known as Mr Turton and was called “The Netherton Company”.

In recent years the Butts site has become an eyesore, with the derelict site now enjoying new life after 150 years.

West Mercia Police give out SmartTags to reduce anti-social behavior in nightclubs

Nightclub bouncers will be armed with Smart Water to tag drunk thugs so they can be caught by the police.

Hand-held forensic sprays will be issued to security personnel to combat anti-social behavior in the city centre.

Smart Water acts as a permanent marker – saving door staff the hassle of chasing troublemakers.

Officers can then find those that have been sprayed and shine UV light on them to show they have been tagged.

The rollout to security staff follows a successful trial last October when Hereford bouncers were armed with SmartTags.

Pubs, bars and nightclubs in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire will now train staff to use the aerosol type spray.

Tyler Haines, assistant doorman at Play Nightclub Hereford and whose team uses SmartTag, said: ‘In January we witnessed an incident at our club where two men were very aggressive, assaulting door staff and assaulting clients.

“As the situation became unpredictable, I took the decision to remove SmartTag to deter the two men, but a man went to hit me and so SmartTag was deployed on them.

“Both men fled the scene and diffused the situation.”

It comes after research found violence and abuse against pub staff and bouncers increased dramatically following the Covid pandemic.

Sergeant Nick Hall said: “This is an exciting step in our ongoing efforts to combat anti-social behaviour, keep people safe and protect them and staff from harm.

“This new technology and its deployment will help us address some of the elements of anti-social behavior that are particularly evident in our nighttime economy and will send a positive message to our communities that we are doing everything we can to address their concerns.

“We will be handing over the new equipment to the people responsible for keeping your pubs, bars and clubs safe for relaxation and fun and who often face a deluge of abuse and violence.

“By securely tagging individuals, officers patrolling the community can easily identify them and advance any required enforcement.”

The bouncers’ deployment comes after Smart Water sprays were administered to 400 Co-op security guards following a spike in attacks on frontline staff.

Methanol found in systems of deceased teenagers in South African nightclub | Videos

* Last month, June 26, remains a sad moment for South Africa and the rest of the world, as 21 teens died after a huge party in a South African nightclub. Several government officials joined police for a press conference to reveal the latest details of the case, report it Washington Post.

Experts had previously detected methanol in the victims’ blood samples, but they are evaluating further to determine whether the levels were lethal or non-lethal.

The teenagers, aged 13 to 17, had previously partied at Enyobeni Tavern, the east London coastal town on June 26, before they died. According to the police, some of them (teenagers) were slumped on the furniture when the officers arrived.

Health officials initially linked their deaths to alcohol and carbon monoxide poisoning before Litha Matinawe, provincial assistant director of clinical services for the Eastern Cape, ruled out the factors, after testing. Other reports indicate that a stampede may also have caused some of the deaths.

A witness who spoke to the Post said people were heard in the tavern, shouting “I can’t breathe” and “I’m choking.” Others said people were “choked” on a substance that “smelled like gas.”

Yonela Dekeda, spokeswoman for the same region’s health department, said more tests were underway to determine the cause of death. He further explains that it is still too early to determine where the teenagers got the methanol – alcohol or elsewhere.

According to CDC, methanol can cause a range of health complications and is commonly used as antifreeze, in fuels, pesticides and pesticides. The CDC further explains that most methanol poisonings are due to methanol products or beverages contaminated with the substance. In the industrial sector, death can occur when they inhale large quantities of methanol vapor or absorb it through the skin.

A witness who spoke to the Post spoke of some victims in the tavern saying they weren’t breathing and choking while others were choking on something that smelled like gas. The 52-year-old club owner was arrested after the incident and will face trial next month. He faces several charges, including that of having authorized access to alcohol to minors. Two employees aged 33 and 34 were also arrested alongside him.

The teenagers were celebrating the end of high school exams when the tragedy happened, according to Blavity. Talk to CBS NewsBheki Cele, the police minister said the teenagers died dancing – they literally danced, fell and died.

Made the feast ! Fresno is trying to keep bars and nightclubs open later – GV Wire

Fans of local bars and nightclubs will soon be able to party for two more hours on Friday and Saturday nights. This is a unique opportunity that is being seized by government and business.

A bill making its way through the Sacramento Legislature would extend last call to 4 a.m. on weekends and 3 a.m. on other days. But the change from the universal closing time of 2 a.m. would only apply to Fresno and six other California cities.

This is fabulous news for a club owner in Fresno.

“It will give us the opportunity to make more money, you know, extend hours…more time to sell,” said Cisco Mendez, owner and operator of FAB Fresno Nightclub in the Tower District.

Senate Bill 930, drafted by Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, would give select cities the right to control where and how bars could stay open later. In addition to Fresno, the bill specifies Oakland, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Coachella, Cathedral Springs and West Hollywood.

Wiener says extending opening hours would help the hospitality industry, which has been particularly devastated by the pandemic.

“It’s about allowing cities to decide what nightlife suits them locally instead of having the current one-size-fits-all,” Wiener said at a meeting of the Assembly’s political committee last month.

A proposal from the state legislature would allow Fresno and a few other California cities to extend the hours of business that serve alcohol beyond the current 2 a.m. cutoff. (GV Wire/Albert Baker)

Mendez says the overtime would be helpful, since FAB isn’t open during the day. He says many of his customers are still strong at the current closing time.

“People are having fun, drunk. And to kick everybody out at some point… that always seems kind of, you know, counterproductive,” Mendez said.

The bill has the support of the mayor of Fresno and industry groups. A well-known attorney with ties to Fresno, however, objected.

Third time a charm?

It’s not the first time that Wiener has tried to keep the doors of nightlife venues open longer. His previous try in 2019, also with Fresno as a pilot city, failed on the Assembly floor. His 2018 bill — without Fresno — passed the Legislature before being vetoed by the then-governor. Jerry Brown.

Like the 2019 version, the City of Fresno is a voluntary participant with the full support of Mayor Jerry Dyer.

“Because SB 930 includes significant protections, multiple lanes of local control, and full evaluation before requesting extended sales hours, I’m happy to offer my support,” Dyer wrote Wiener in a June 14 letter.

During June 22 Steering Committee Hearinglobbyist Angie Manetti spoke in favor of the bill on Dyer’s behalf.

If the bill becomes law, it is not automatic that bars can extend their opening hours. Fresno would still need to develop rules and the bars/restaurants would still need a license extension from state regulators. The pilot program would run from 2025 to 2030.

Local nightclubs can benefit more than traditional bars.

“It’s not something we would do…but I’m not opposed to others having the ability. As long as companies manage it responsibly, I would be fine with that,” said David Rasavong, who operates Banzai Japanese Bar & Kitchen, and The Lincoln.

Alcohol watchdogs, law enforcement oppose

Cruz Avila, Executive Director of the Legislative Oversight Group alcohol justicespoke out against the bill at the June 22 hearing of the Assembly’s Government Organizing Committee.

He is concerned about drunk drivers on the road at the same time as early morning commuters.

“Just imagine people drinking after 2 or 4 a.m. when people get up just to get to work and what that might cause. And obviously there’s no point,” Avila, a Fresno resident and former CEO of Poverello House, told GV Wire.

Avila refutes the argument that the extension of the last call is necessary to help bars and restaurants.

“We can’t put a dollar in front of or replace that for the life of a human being,” Avila said.

He plans a meeting with Dyer to discuss the matter.

“I’m surprised how Fresno would… want to actually support this bill,” Avila said.

FAB owner Mendez says places like Las Vegas are examples of how a late last call can be handled safely.

“Responsible adults can manage their alcohol and make wise choices. I mean, people drink during the day, all day. There’s alcohol being sold all day. And that’s okay. But, you know, it’s effort and it’s a problem. But all of a sudden after 2 a.m., it’s a problem. I think it’s just a really weird way to watch adults “said Mendez.

The California Highway Patrol Association and several anti-alcohol abuse groups strongly oppose SB 930.

Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama declined to comment.

Next steps for the bill

Wiener’s bill is currently being considered by the Assembly.

The bill will then be heard by the Assembly Appropriations Committee, scheduled for August 3. If he is adopted there, he will then go to the floor of the Assembly.

Although it originated in the state senate, the bill is expected to return there. The first version of SB 930 was a housing-focused bill, completely amended after votes in a process known as “gut and amend”.

Where will state lawmakers who represent the city land on the new bill?

Congressman Joaquin Arambula, D-Fresno, voted against the 2018 and 2019 versions of Wiener’s bill. He is also a doctor.

Jim Patterson, R-Fresno, did not vote on either bill.

On the Senate side, neither Melissa Hurtado, D-Bakersfield, nor Andreas Borgeas, R-Fresno, were in the Legislative Assembly at the time of previous bills.

Schlager thugs? Argument erupts over ‘sexist’ pop hit in Germany | Germany

They are loud, unsophisticated and often offensive in content. With titles ranging from Sex With a Bavarian to Big Tits Potato Salad, the ballermann subgenre of schlager pop is a big hit in German-dominated nightclubs on the Balearic island of Mallorca, but is more likely cause grimaces of embarrassment or Fremdschamen at home.

Yet this week, German newspapers were filled with detailed analyzes of schlager’s song lyrics, and even the country’s justice minister felt inclined to share his musical tastes after a Bavarian town decided to banish this holiday season’s ballermann hit from its breweries for its sexist tendencies.

Layla, by DJ Robin & Schürze, which has risen to the top of the German singles charts in the last three weeks, is a song about a brothel woman who is “prettier, younger, more cunning” than the other sex workers in his establishment.

Whether Layla is the owner of the brothel or an employee herself is unclear: the song also refers to her as luder, meaning “naughty” or “minx”. With a refrain of “La-la-la-la-la-la-la-Layla, la-la-la-la”, the song’s narrative ambitions are limited.

On Monday, the city of Würzburg announced that it would not perform the song at the annual Kiliani fair, organized by the municipal authorities. “We understand that the song can be catchy, catchy and melodic,” said city spokesman Christian Weiß. “But that doesn’t change the fact that sexist lyrics are unacceptable and not appropriate for our festival.”

In the western city of Düsseldorf, a shooting club responsible for organizing the fair also said it would not play the song. “I’m of the opinion that this song belongs everywhere but our festival site,” club chairman Lothar Inden told broadcaster WDR.

Bild, the mighty German tabloid, jumped on the story as what it saw as evidence of a modern form of censorship. “People are prescribed how to speak, how to write and now how to party. This prudish nanny from the politically correct brigade needs to stop. We are moving towards an anti-fun society.

German Justice Minister Marco Buschmann of the Liberal Democratic Party (FDP) himself a creator of electronic music in his spare timejoined the debate on Twitter“You don’t have to like schlager’s lyrics. You may find them silly and unpleasant. But in my opinion, an official ban is a step too far.

However, neither the authorities in Würzburg nor Düsseldorf have taken the decision to issue a decree that would amount to an official ban. “We are not the guardians of public morals, but the organisers,” an official at the Killiani fair told Bayerischer Rundfunk radio. A spokesman for the mayor of Düsseldorf said there were no plans to ban the song.

In 2021, authorities in Würzburg took a similar step to stop playing the so-called Donaulied or Danube Song after a student started a petition against “beer tent sexism”. The traditional folk song describes a man raping a sleeping woman he meets on the banks of the Danube, although in some modern schlager versions the lyrics are changed to describe their sexual intercourse as consensual.

Supreme Court letting states mandate morality will end badly

Comment

The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Womens Organization of health reversed Roe vs. Wade, opening the door for states to impose a conservative Christian moral agenda on people who do not share such beliefs. We have been here before.

A case dating back more than a century, in which the court favored the imposition of a particular moral agenda, points to a disastrous path ahead – with new discriminatory laws that trample on rights and freedoms.

At the turn of the 20th century, the United States experienced a revolution in morals and customs. Concentrated areas of nightclubs, saloons, gambling halls, brothels, dance halls, bars, cheap hotels, and opium dens arose in the country’s booming cities. Their visibility — amplified by an increasingly sensationalist press — is causing moral panic, especially among those who fear a rejection of religion and good morals.

Prostitution was a particular concern. Most white Americans subscribed to the idea that white women were inherently sexually chaste. In contrast, they viewed recent immigrants, African Americans, and other people of color as inferior, making women more likely to enter prostitution. Given these beliefs, the increased visibility of American-born white women in urban prostitution in the early 20th century created an urgent moral panic among white Americans.

Since they believed in the inherent purity and sexual passivity of white women, they saw only one explanation for this behavior: innocent young women had been lured by the lies of malefactors (often portrayed in the press and political rhetoric as immigrants), then victimized by brute force to become sex slaves for hire. This panic of white slaves reached its climax between 1908 and 1913.

Rep. James Robert Mann (R-Ill.) championed paternalistic government protection of white American womanhood as a solution. In 1910, Congress passed the White-Slave Traffic Act, better known as the Mann Act, in recognition of its sponsor. The Mann Act made it a crime for “any person” to “knowingly convey…in interstate or foreign commerce…any woman or girl for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose.”

Even congressional opponents of the Mann Act have not opposed police morality efforts, nor have they questioned the scope of the problem. Instead, they denied that the federal government has the constitutional authority to pass such a law and preferred to let the states act. Southern officials — aware of the risks of Jim Crow segregation if the federal government grew too powerful — accused the law of violating states’ rights by giving the federal government unlimited power to “regulate the morals and health of a sovereign state”.

Despite the fear campaigns, the police never uncovered the International White Slave Syndicate which Mann and others say was flourishing. Instead, the Mann Act became a tool to persecute men who flouted societal norms, like African-American heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson, who eventually served time for dating a white prostitute.

One of the Mann Act’s most famous early prosecutions exposed the law’s staggering ramifications. Maury I. Diggs and Farley Drew Caminetti were married dads who dated single women Marsha Warrington and Lola Norris. All four were from prominent Sacramento families, and for months the public antics of the two illicit couples shocked the Californian capital. They headed to Reno hoping to let the gossip die down. But instead, police jailed Diggs and Caminetti on various charges, including violating the Mann Act. Their real crime, however, was having affairs.

Mann himself saw the case as a test not only for his legislation, but also for the very soul of the nation. Prosecutors and the press too. The case made national headlines.

Diggs was first tried before an all-male jury – although California granted women the right to vote in 1911, their right to jury service was not officially enacted until 1917. When the defense began to argue that the two young women were voluntarily going to Reno, Judge William Van Fleet intervened to say that the motives and character of Warrington and Norris had no bearing on the case. The consent and wishes of the women were irrelevant.

The jury found Diggs guilty of transporting Warrington and Norris to Reno for immoral purposes.

During jury selection for Caminetti’s trial, Van Fleet again clarified that the White-Slave Traffic Act was designed to criminalize immoral behavior: “There is no personal freedom to commit a crime, and more the sooner people see this fact, the better. will be for society. Caminetti was also found guilty.

Then, as now, many were convinced that the justice system could remedy what they saw as a society gone morally insane. Others, including Warrington, saw a gross violation of individual liberty, bodily autonomy, and women’s right to sexual agency. After Diggs’ wife divorced, Warrington and Diggs married in 1915 (a union that lasted until Diggs’ death in 1953). The ‘Mann Act-protected’ woman proclaimed the lawsuit shattered them ‘in fortune and reputation, in family, in spirit’. She clearly stated that her husband had been “punished for a crime he did not commit. He is not now, and he never was, a white slaver. We were adults and we went there for non-immoral reasons. There was no constraint. His protests went unheeded because the convictions served a much larger agenda.

According to the Sacramento Bee, the punishment of men “will be a magnificent thing for the moral atmosphere of California. She will put the fear of the law, if not of God, in the hearts of the poor who make the seduction of young girls their main pastime. The Bee concluded that each state should enact intrastate versions of the Mann Act, which could be used to declare all-out war against lax morality.

In 1916, the Supreme Court heard the appeals of Diggs and Caminetti. Their attorney, former Sen. Joseph W. Bailey (D-Tex.) railed, “Our humanity revolts at the idea of ​​punishing moral failure as a crime, and no law that does so can be properly enforced.

The court ruled, however, that since the wording of the law included “any other immoral purpose,” the Diggs and Caminetti verdicts should stand. While the majority asserted that Congress could not legislate morality within individual states, they also clarified that Congress could making any extramarital sex that involves crossing state borders illegal. In dissent, Justice Joseph McKenna shared the concern that the words “any other immoral purpose” formed such a broad expression that it covered “any form of vice, any form of conduct contrary to good order”.

The decision brought relief to Americans who had been disturbed by a changing society that challenged traditional conceptions of gender and family. They saw the case (and the Mann Act) as bulwarks against new ideas about acceptable behavior between men and women, and in particular white women’s right to sexual agency.

As legal scholar Lawrence Friedman notes, the Mann Act allowed “busy people, resentful people, outraged husbands, wives, parents, and others” to allege violations of the law in a discriminatory way that ruined lives. The FBI opened nearly 50,000 investigations between 1921 and 1936 alone. Some convictions, such as those in the Caminetti-Diggs case, involved consensual extramarital sex. African-American men who pursued women outside of their race were targeted, including actor Rex Ingram (1949) and musician Chuck Berry (1962). The law has also proven to be an extremely effective means of punishing famous white men for their center-left politics or disregard for social norms. Authorities filed Mann Act charges against sociologist William I. Thomas (1918), architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1926), British poet George Baker (1940), and film legend Charlie Chaplin (1944).

This abuse of the law only changed when amendments to the Mann Act in 1978 and 1986 transformed it into an important tool in the fight against sex trafficking.

As the history of the Mann Act shows, the Dobbs This decision opens the door for lawmakers to pass laws that, far from protecting morality, will instead trample on women’s sexual agency and create and perpetuate new injustices.

Gay club Hell’s Kitchen targeted by allegations of discrimination: lawsuit

A celebrity-backed gay nightclub in Hell’s Kitchen has engaged in racist and sexist entry policies, catering to underage drinkers and turned a blind eye to illegal drugs, including GHB, a “date rape” drug, according to a new lawsuit.

The Q, which opened in 2021 on Eighth Avenue and 48th Street, was supposed to trumpet ‘inclusivity’, but partner Alan Pikus ‘expressed his discriminatory beliefs and was hostile to the club addressing to any group other than young white males. former partner Frank “Frankie” Sharp alleged in the lawsuit that was filed last month in Manhattan State Supreme Court.

Sharp, nightlife producer and public face of the club, says in the suit that he worked to design and launch the four-story venue which features a mix of live music, cocktails and a dance floor . Actors Charlie Carver and Zachary Quinto are among its investors, and Billy Porter has helped promote it.

Frank Sharp claimed in the lawsuit that his former business partner Alan Pikus was “vocal in his discriminatory beliefs”.

In addition to Pikus, also known as Alan Picus and nightclub promoter, his partner Bob Fluet, founder of the Boxers NYC bar chain, is named in the lawsuit.

The Q was quickly popular with customers, but immediately rattled neighbors who filed noise complaints, according to the lawsuit, which alleged that Pikus would turn up the speaker volume if someone turned it down.

Pikus was also hostile to the club’s popular Latin parties, telling Sharp, “Make sure your Latin parties are the right kind of Latins, not Blatinos,” using slang for someone of mixed race, according to reports. court documents.

Pikus wanted the venue to be “comfortable for white twinks,” or young gay white men, according to the lawsuit. He wanted women off limits and made a disparaging remark to a would-be bar manager, saying, “I don’t need [you] breaking my back to hire people just because they are black or trans,” court documents allege.

The club has earned a reputation as ‘the place to go for minors’, according to court documents.

And Pikus “ordered” security to stop interdicting illegal drugs and when they didn’t comply he said he would read the “riot act” to the director of security for “removing our boys’ GHB,” the lawsuit alleges. The so-called club drug is known to lower inhibitions and to be slipped into drinks to render a victim unable to resist sexual assault.

Pikus also allegedly had sex in public with club patrons, often near workers and “sometimes next to them,” according to the lawsuit.

When he told Fluet about the workers’ complaints in April 2022 with a video to back them up, he was given an ultimatum to resign with a small payout or possibly face dismissal, Sharp argued in his lawsuit.

Sharp said he was fired on May 23.

The Q announced released its non-discrimination policy midway through the trial.

The suit seeks at least $726,000 plus Sharp’s share of the club’s profits.

“I was shown the door BECAUSE of my REPEATED attempts to address the problematic behavior and dangerous mishandling of the Q…. All I seek in this claim is justice and I REFUSE to be intimidated “, Sharp said on his Facebook page.

Thomas Shanahan, an attorney for Pikus, said “allegations of inappropriate, racially insensitive and discriminatory comments were taken out of context.”

Pikus denied making the remarks about Latinos, white ‘twinks’, trans people and that he hadn’t had sex in the club or allowed us to be illegally drugged or underage drunk, added Shanahan.

The Q announced on his Instagram page this week that Pikus was no longer affiliated with it and donated $10,000 to Destination Tomorrow, a Bronx nonprofit serving the LGBTQ+ community.

Fluet on Instagram said “While we vehemently deny the hurtful allegations that have recently surfaced, we are committed to ending the very division within our community that Q’s programming and mission were designed to combat.”

Representatives for Carver, Quinto and Porter did not return requests for comment.

Toronto residents are exhausted after a nightclub allegedly opened under a condo

West Toronto residents say they are completely exhausted after a so-called nightclub opens at the foot of their condominium.

Loud music, a pounding base and rattling noise are just three of the top complaints some residents of 801 King Street West, located near Niagara Street, have made to settlement officials in recent weeks. They say that in June a new establishment opened its doors in a commercial space on the ground floor of their building, and that a few times a week, they are thus subjected to sleepless nights.

Bei Sun has lived on the third floor of 801 King Street for about 10 years. She said she never had any noise issues until a few months ago when all of a sudden loud music started blasting at 1am.

“I heard this kind of heavy dancing and the electric vibes,” Sun told CTV News Toronto. “My window, I heard noise, so I call security, they said there’s a bar downstairs they’re opening.”

Sun said the loud music continued week after week, making it almost impossible to fall asleep. Employed in a CHSLD, she often works weekends, the same evenings when the establishment is open.

“I can’t rest,” she said, adding that she had to call in sick from lack of sleep.

“It’s these heavy bass music, it goes in your mind, in your heart. It makes you hyper. You can’t sleep in the middle of the night.

Sun is one of many residents who called 311 and had by-law officers come to her unit to measure the noise. But so far, no action has been taken.

The establishment downstairs from the condo is called Hyde Social. Their website has conflicting hours of operation, with one area promoting a Monday-Friday 3-6pm happy hour, while also stating on the same website that they are open Wednesday-Saturday between 10pm and 3 a.m.

Their Instagram account also says they are open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, while promoting bottle service and guest lists. The video shows large groups of people dancing and taking pictures while DJs play music in the background.

In response to CTV News Toronto’s investigation, a spokesperson for Hyde Social said the business operates as a licensed restaurant and bar, with a full kitchen serving food and drink.

“We strive to be good neighbors and as such, when we were made aware of noise concerns, we hired an accredited sound company who performed a full analysis of our operations. It has been confirmed that our operations meet the permitted noise levels prescribed by municipal regulations,” they said.

“We are also in contact with by-law officers to discuss the matter and will work with them to ensure that we comply with all by-laws.”

Angeline Putnickovich had purchased a unit at 801 King Street with her sister in May. At the time, the space now occupied by Hyde Social was closed and its estate agent said they were not sure what was going on in the space, but it could be a restaurant.

She told CTV News Toronto that she was “gutted” when she spent her first night in the condo on Canada Day and was kept awake by loud music.

“It really felt like I was in the nightclub,” Putnickovich said, adding that it wasn’t just the music, but the sound of an air horn and the heavy base that rocked his unit. from the second floor.

“There’s no way anyone can sleep through this,” she said. “If it’s like that every weekend or even…especially Wednesday, Thursday for the whole working week. I don’t know what I’m going to do.

The City of Toronto confirmed that it had received three complaints about Hyde Social in June 2022 and was “investigating to determine if it had the appropriate business license”.

“This is an active investigation and we are unable to provide further information at this time,” a spokesperson said in an email.

The company has a “catering establishment” license, according to a commercial license search.

A catering establishment is widely considered a restaurant, cafe, bar or pub with seating for customers. A nightclub or entertainment establishment is defined as a place in which there is a dance hall for customers and where there is no seating for most customers. The food or drink is offered “as an accessory”.

Spadina-Fort York alderman Joe Mihevc told CTV News Toronto he’s not sure if zoning rules allow a nightclub to be on the ground floor of a boardroom in condominiums, but that there were requirements in terms of noise and general behavior when within a residential area.

He urged residents to continue to contact 311 with any concerns or complaints, as it is the only real avenue available to them from the city’s perspective. However, he also acknowledged that enforcing municipal complaints by-laws is a much slower process than one involving the violation of a criminal statute.

“Before they sue, if they decide to go to court, they have to build a case,” he said. “They are also trying to work with the property or owner, whatever the case, to rectify the situation.”

“What we really want is for the people running businesses to be successful and to do it the right way.”

“We’re not looking to close the business, we want to make sure they follow all the regulations, so we would give them time to rectify that.”

Toronto real estate attorney Bob Aaron suggests the condo tenants band together and pursue further legal action through their board of directors.

“They can issue a request for the music to stop at 1 a.m. because there is a requirement for peace and quiet in the building,” he said.

“I think the condo board has a lot of power and the city has a lot of power, which they may or may not use, and I think the law is on the side of the residents.”

NO NIGHTCLUB NOISE

Sabrina, another resident of 801 King Street West, is part of a group called No Nightclub Noise, which was formed in response to another business in the area which they say is also causing sleepless nights and anxiety. . The group started a petition after months of trying to deal with the facility through city channels, such as calling 311 or contacting their local councillor.

“Obviously there is noise from life on King Street, trams, traffic etc. But I never had any issues with noise from nightclubs until February 25 this year,” said Sabrina.

It was around this time that Pizza Wine Disco opened at 788 King Street West. Residents allege it is a nightclub “passing” as a restaurant. They complained of loud music until 3 a.m., large groups of people flooding the streets and customers regularly trespassing on neighboring properties to urinate.

Sabrina has lived at 801 King Street for around 15 years and said she has never had a problem with the area before, even when a pub was open in the location currently used by Hyde Social.

“It doesn’t just affect our building. It affects several buildings in the neighborhood,” she said.

Videos tagged Pizza Wine Disco, posted on instagram and ICT Tac, shows a crowded bar with people dancing on tables, as well as customers sitting enjoying pizzas and drinks. They also have a specific “nightlife” site in which customers can request bottle service.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Pizza Wine Disco (PWD) said they never used a DJ and never played music outside of its opening hours, which operate from 5 p.m. 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

“The City of Toronto has confirmed that PWD is in compliance with all municipal bylaws, including those relating to noise levels. Our staff perform regular and frequent decibel readings and we have installed noise limiters on the sound system to ensure continued compliance,” they said.

“The fact that PWD is a self-contained building means that we are able to effectively monitor and control the volume emanating from the premises. We also have a significant security presence and increased signage outside to ensure customers do not cause excessive noise when entering or leaving the facility.

The spokesperson insisted that PWD is “not a nightclub” and that it “has no dance floor or guest list and does not charge a ‘cover fee/ entry”.

“PWD has gone above and beyond to solidify itself as a productive and respectful member of the community. The vast majority of our neighbors happily support our operations and have become regular customers.

Farat Farrokhi lives in a townhouse right next to the disabled and says he is now considering moving due to the stress the situation is causing him. He has lived in the area for nine years and told CTV News Toronto that the restaurant’s alley is right next to his room. He said he heard loud music and after closing, customers tended to hang around, talk loudly and urinate or vomit on his property.

He complained to 311 and contacted various politicians at all levels of government, but when Hyde Social moved into the area he had had enough.

“I have an appointment with my estate agent tomorrow. I’m just thinking about leaving. And it’s not the right time for me to do that,” he said.

He is not the only one. Sabrina also considers leaving the neighborhood she loved.

“The bylaws, the tools we have for that are supposed to protect us, they’re really very biased towards the company,” she said. “There’s nothing about them that actually gives us any way to grapple with the fact that there was a nightclub in an apartment building, in an apartment block.”

“It’s a sad awakening.”

#trend: Club goers beg S’pore nightclubs to open earlier so they can ‘sleep before midnight’

In his rant, Milotruckdreams observed that nightclubs usually open at 10 p.m., with the revelry starting around 11 p.m.

“It’s almost bedtime already,” she lamented. “Why can’t things start at, like, 7:30?” »

She then described a preferable schedule allowing someone who finishes work at 6 p.m. to go into town, have dinner with friends, go to clubs by 7:30 p.m. and sleep before midnight.

One of the selling points of this new idea was being able to take public transport home and not have to pay for the ever-increasing fare increases of private rental cars.

One Instagram user noted, “All night buses home have also just been discontinued. No better time for this change.”

More importantly, the anonymous comedian pointed out that being able to sleep earlier will also allow clubgoers to make plans for the next morning instead of wasting half the day like they usually do.

One comment agreed, saying how impossible it is to start early the next day: “My friend wants to kill me because Saturday morning I can’t wake up for yoga.”

Another said, “Start early and finish early!! The next day you can still function and work.”

That could well include nightclub DJs and other staff, who Milotruckdreams says “still have to go sell insurance” the next morning.

Readers were very amused by his light on the seemingly vast number of people working in the insurance industry, and many comments about it.

“I died when I read that,” said one.

On Wednesday, Instagram user “jermheng” uploaded a video of his own heartfelt re-enactment of the rant, writing, “Finally we feel understood.”

His Instagram Reel has been viewed over 8,600 times, prompting further passionate comments: “Finally someone expresses exactly how I feel about clubbing to perfection!!!!!!!! We want to dance AND have a restorative sleep.”

Nightclub faces charges for ‘blasphemous’ advertising

29/06/2022 Indonesia (International Christian Concern) – A chain of nightclubs in Indonesia is facing backlash over what is called a profanity marketing campaign. The incident is the latest example of the harshness of Indonesia’s recently overhauled blasphemy laws, which are often used to oppress religious minorities in the Muslim-majority country.

In an advertisement that has since been removed, the club, Holywings, promised a free bottle of gin for men named Muhammad or women named Maria every Thursday as part of a promotion.

The strong reaction from the Indonesian public and government was mainly in response to the use of the name Muhammad in the campaign.

Alcohol, prohibited by Islamic law, is sold throughout Indonesia, as it is technically a secular country. However, alcohol consumption is strongly frowned upon by conservative Muslims. The Prophet Muhammad’s association with the promotion of alcohol consumption in nightclubs was highly frowned upon.

Following the post, several Islamic youth organizations reported the leadership of Holywings to the police for allegedly committing blasphemy. Other groups have threatened to raid the station’s premises.

At a televised press conference last Friday, police presented six suspects involved in the spread of the advertisement, including the creative director of Holywings and the head of its promotional team. They were dressed in orange shirts typically worn by criminal offenders in Indonesia. Their faces were covered.

The group have been charged with multiple offenses including blasphemy and, if implicated, could face up to 10 years in prison.

Police investigate possible terror attack after mass shooting at Norwegian nightclub

OSLO, Norway — A mass shooting that left two people dead and 14 injured in the Norwegian capital of Oslo on Friday night is being investigated as a possible terror attack, police said.

A Norwegian citizen of Iranian descent has been arrested, investigators told a news conference. They added that the suspect was known to police but not for major crimes.

He said the man was arrested shortly after the shooting at the London Pub, a nightclub and bar popular with the LGBTQ community in the city and the streets around it.

The authorities of the Scandinavian country have raised the terrorist alert to the highest level.

Police attorney Christian Hatlo said the suspect was being held on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and terrorism, based on the number of people targeted at multiple locations. The suspect’s mental health was also under investigation.

A handgun and an automatic weapon were seized in connection with the shooting, police said.

Eyewitness Olav Roenneberg told Norwegian public broadcaster NRK that he “saw a man coming with a bag”, before “taking out a gun and starting shooting”.

“At first I thought it was an air gun. Then the window of the bar next door was smashed and I realized I had to take cover,” Roenneberg said. , journalist.

It was not immediately clear what the motive for the attack was or whether the shooting had anything to do with the Pride parade due to be held hours later in Oslo.

The organizers, however, canceled the parade on the advice of the police.

Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere called the shooting “a cruel and deeply shocking attack on innocent people” in a Facebook Publish.

Photographs published by newspaper VG, broadcaster NRK and others showed a large gathering of emergency responders outside the London Pub, including police and paramedics.

Helicopters hovered over central Oslo as ambulance and police car sirens sounded across the city.

Oslo University Hospital said it was put on red alert after the shooting.

Norway is a relatively safe country but has seen violent attacks by right-wing extremists, including one of Europe’s worst mass shootings in 2011, when a right-wing extremist killed 69 people on the island of Utoya after detonating a bomb in Oslo. which killed eight people.

In 2019, another right-wing extremist killed his half-sister and then opened fire at a mosque but was subdued before anyone was injured.

City solicitor seeks new nightclub bylaw – Chelsea Record

If it’s late at night, a restaurant has music and dancing, then it’s really not that different from a nightclub, according to City Solicitor Cheryl Watson Fisher.

The only problem in Chelsea is that the city does not license nightclubs, but that could change.

Kathryn Bolden, Yaisa Romero and Gabriel Rosado at Chelsea High School’s 2022 graduation ceremony.

“We don’t have nightclub use in our rules and regulations or city ordinances,” Fisher said. “But we allow customers to dance, and it’s a nightclub. When you have music, whether it’s live or with a DJ, you have dances by patrons, it’s a nightclub and we want to enact new rules and regulations if you have that fun and entertainment that to dance by customers.

At last week’s Licensing Board meeting, Fisher noted that the city has already ruled that staff shouldn’t dance with customers. She said the city will develop new rules and regulations and hold a public hearing about them with licensees.

“We just think we want the police there,” Fisher said. “It gets a little crazy in these restaurants at night and they all spill out onto the public streets with tons of music and noise disrupting the neighborhood. We’re going to try to put in place rules similar to other cities and villages that if you want an amusement and entertainment license, they will have to comply and come before (the commission) every year for that particular use.

Fisher said the nightclub’s sublicense will operate under the establishment’s existing license.

“We need to start enforcing this so that we know who the security is (in establishments), and there will be a lot of recommendations in front of you if they want to have their customers dance,” Fisher said.

In other cases, Fisher said there could also be changes to taxi license records before the city council.

“Our ordinances are very strict, it’s not the rules and regulations, it’s the ordinances that say to have a taxi company you have to have an office in Chelsea,” Fisher said. “That’s not how taxis work anymore, everything is done by phone and some dispatchers are even drivers. We may propose to the city council and to (the licensing commission) a more relaxed renewal process for hackneys.

Fisher also noted that the application deadline for companies wishing to apply for one of the five new on-site liquor licenses that Chelsea received following the US census could be extended until September. To date, she said the city has only received one application.

The club celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2022, relaunching with a little makeover inspired by NYC-style dive bars. The relaunch included new acoustic treatment and a pumping KV2 audio system specially tuned by Translate Sound (7RANSLA7E). He also scored a 4am seven-day-a-week license – huge news for Sydney’s often lackluster midweek options after 9pm. There’s even a late-night happy hour from 2:30 to 3:30.

Powersoft’s Mover Shakes Things Up at Amsterdam’s Dance Music Museum and Nightclub

Powersoft’s compact transducer, Mover, is at the heart of a new four-dimensional nightlife experience in Amsterdam that lets visitors dive deep into the rich culture and educational history of electronic dance music from its roots to These days.

Based in Amsterdam’s Rembrandt district, Our House has been a thriving nightclub and the beating heart of the electronic music scene since the 1980s. The iconic venue upheld its musical heritage by recently becoming a museum of digital storytelling, promising a journey of 75 minutes in the musical genre via interactive exhibitions, shows and performances, telling the story of how electronic music – once a rebellious and secretive underground scene – evolved into a global cultural phenomenon.

“When we came here about two years ago, the place was very analog: there was a sound system, strobes, a smoke machine and LEDs – that was about it,” says Our House’s general manager, Jeroen Jansen. “We wanted to rebuild the club with facilities that could tell the story of over 40 years of dance music using mixed media technology. In order to revamp the place and bring it to a whole new level, we received a lot of support from the industry, including Powersoft.

The redesign of the venue had to be carefully thought out, as it houses a popular nightclub, Club Air, in the evening while sharing the same space with museum visitors during the day. The power of the amps and Mover are somewhat harnessed for effect during the day and aimed more at visually connecting to the video content, while at night the low frequencies are boosted on the dance floor to accentuate the music and line. bass.

Jansen sought advice from Powersoft engineers to estimate the number of movers required to support the dance floor structure they had in mind; the double layer flooring needed to support 100 people and 12 tons of weight.

They opted for 64 Mover, Powersoft’s compact linear transducer, all powered by four Quattrocanali 4804 DSP+D amplifiers. The transducer can be attached to a variety of objects and structures, including gaming chairs, entertainment room seating, wall panels, and in this case, under the double-layered dance floor.

“We came up with the idea of ​​actively involving all the technical elements associated with electronic music, such as light, video, laser and special effects. We wanted the movement under people’s feet to form a completely immersive experience, created by a timecode content system,” says Jansen, who refers to the content specifically designed as “the connector of all dots,” bringing all the technologies at specific musical points. , like when the rhythm drops or the musical crescendo.

The “double floor” construction consists of a hydraulic surface, which can slide up and down 20 cm, and the secondary floor above. The latter has the 64 Mover attached, one to each floor panel, so it can be felt wherever the person is.

Jansen credits his passion for electronic music with driving the creation of this experiential museum, which pays tribute to the “protagonists” (iconic DJs, bands and producers, including Daft Punk, Carl Cox and Diplo) who helped organize a first – one-of-a-kind experience: “It was very important for us to create a complete, glasses-free VR experience at the culminating end of the visitor journey. This is where the idea of ​​a haptic experience came from: linking all the technology to movement, so that everything works in harmony.

System integrator Lagotronics worked with Our House to develop the hydraulic “free fall” floor system, which not only vibrates but falls downwards. “We’re adding a special element that nobody expects, so it’s quite a shock to people when they’re here; it creates a truly unique experience,” adds Jansen.

The creative designer of the sound system, Joshua Dutrieux (JDX Music), was approached by Jansen and Fourmation, his entertainment company, with a mission to create something that had never been done before and that would make the dance museum truly memorable: “I I know Jansen from the time we were organizing dance music events together,” says Dutrieux. “I come from a background of house and hardcore music, so I really wanted to be part of this project!”

Dutrieux experimented with two Mover at home, exploring the capabilities of its low frequencies: “I wanted to identify the frequencies to make the ground rumble. I had all these audio samples and started adjusting the volumes up and down. Eventually the rumble made my jaw quiver and I thought, ‘Okay, let’s do this full-scale on a dance floor.’

Over the past few years, Mover has been used for a wide variety of applications, in gaming chairs, immersive experiences, and under floors, where it is used as a subharmonic frequency extender to replace the amount of subwoofer in a space, subsequently reducing low-frequency noise pollution in the surrounding environment.

“Because of the massive force we can put on a Mover, it actually replaces four of the conventional products that have been used in the past, which means the product is very effective,” says Mark Kocks, Business Development Manager at Powersoft. “The sensations created are unprecedented – every visitor I have seen here at Our House came away with a new experience.”

Boon went on to say, “The South has been my second home for over 20 years and it’s been an important part of the Boon family journey. Please join us on Saturday for our closing party. Needless to say, it will be a great send and probably a touching one! Lots of love.”



Crowds cheered as they carried the resident DJ onto the dance floor

Video footage taken on Saturday night showed the room packed as revelers danced to the Manchester anthems. And after getting the crowd moving, the 62-year-old DJ was then carried onto the dance floor, held high by the arms of club-goers who were cheering and screaming.

The southern nightclub on South King Street has closed after 27 years

Commenting on the closure, club general manager Aaron Mellor said: “Over the past few years more and more residential apartments have surrounded us on South King Street, leading to noise reduction advisories and adaptation after adaptation to try to solve the sound problems.

“More recently, the demolition and redevelopment of the former Pizza Express building into a hotel has closed off our adjacent street, moving our smoking area to South King Street, returning more noise issues from residents overlooking that street. We have become landlocked by development residences”.

He added: “All good things must come to an end – we’ve had some amazing times in this building, but now seems like the right time to close the chapter in this story. All the staff, club nights, promoters and of course Mr. Boon, will be safely moved to our Deaf Institute, Gorilla and Factory locations. All you need is SOUTH…x.”

Friend of nightclub shooting victim speaks out as arrest warrant is issued

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) – Springfield police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of the man they believe responsible for an alleged murder at a downtown Springfield nightclub. Friends of the victim told Western Mass News they hoped whoever did it would be brought to justice.

Western Mass News spoke exclusively with one of David Carrasquillo’s childhood friends, who was there the night of the shooting and called 911. She recounted what she heard that night.

“He’s like a brother to me,” said Angelica Garcia, a childhood friend of David Carrasquillo.

Candles, balloons and heartfelt messages remain outside Saga nightclub in Springfield following a deadly shooting this weekend.

According to court documents obtained by Western Mass News, Springfield police responded to a 911 call to the Worthington Street club just before 10:45 p.m. Sunday night. They said they found David Carrasquillo, 30, inside the club with a gunshot wound to the head.

“It was, it was traumatic. It was scary. I’ve seen things in my life, but never something more traumatic than seeing a friend get shot and seeing the body there,” Garcia explained.

Western Mass News spoke exclusively with Angelica Garcia, the woman who called 911 the night of the shooting. She told Western Mass News that she has known Carrasquillo since they were children. She said their group of friends started the night at Zone Patio, before heading to Saga around 9 p.m.

Court documents say surveillance video shows a man entering the club between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., claiming he was quickly searched but not wanted for weapons and a detector metal was not used. They go on to say footage shows Carrasquillo entering the bathroom at 10:38 p.m. Garcia told Western Mass News she went to the women’s bathroom at the same time and said the doors were right next to each other. Newspapers said the other man entered the bathroom at 10:39 p.m.

“The minute I go to the bathroom, all you hear is a bunch of screaming, the gunshot goes off,” Garcia said.

Seconds later, court documents say Carrasquillo opened the bathroom door in a “violent struggle” quote, then fell to the floor. The other man then comes out of the toilet, steps over the body, then heads for the exit of the club.

“The moment I slid the door open and walked out of the bathroom, all I saw was a body on the floor. I didn’t know who it was at first, you know, having alcohol in your system… When I went to walk over to the body, I looked down and realized it was David …His lips were already purple-blue. He was shot in the head. I grabbed my phone. I called 911,” Garcia said.

She told Western Mass News she couldn’t understand why anyone would do this to her friend.

” That does not make sense. It does not mean anything. No one has really had any issues with him that I know of. He wasn’t a bad boy. He was a humble child. He was much loved by family and friends. There’s really nothing bad I can say about him because he wasn’t a bad person,” Garcia explained.

In court documents, police identified the suspect as 35-year-old Brandon Murray.

They say he is 5’10 and weighs 195 lbs. At the time of the incident, police say he was wearing a blue New York Yankees cap, white t-shirt, denim shorts and white sneakers. Police say he has multiple tattoos, which detectives have linked to known Brandon Murray documents in the past.

Murray faces charges of murder, as well as carrying a loaded firearm without a license, discharging it within 500 feet of a dwelling, among other things. He has not yet been arrested.

Garcia told us that she hopes the person responsible will be put behind bars.

“I mean, what that really means is just, you know, justice. That’s all we want is justice… It gives us some relief, where at least we can get him to rest in peace properly. We don’t have to worry about his killer still being on the street and God forbid, doing that to other people. it’s not fair,” Garcia said.

Garcia told us that Carrasquillo leaves behind two children. The investigation into the shooting is still ongoing. Meanwhile, the mayor of Sarno ordered an entertainment and liquor license hearing for the Saga nightclub and the club’s owner waived his licenses on Tuesday. The club is closed until further notice.

Nightclub needlestick attacks intrigue European authorities: NPR

PARIS – Across France, more than 300 people have reported being pricked unexpectedly with needles in nightclubs or concerts in recent months. Doctors and several prosecutors are on the case, but no one knows who is doing it or why, and whether the victims were injected with drugs – or any substance at all.

Club owners and police are trying to raise awareness, and one rapper even interrupted his recent show to warn viewers about the risk of surprise needlestick attacks.

It’s not just France: the British government is investigating a wave of “needle sticks” there, and Belgian and Dutch police are also investigating scattered cases.

On May 4, 18-year-old Tomas Laux attended a rap concert in Lille, northern France, where he smoked some marijuana and drank alcohol during the show. When he got home, he told The Associated Press, he felt dizzy and had a headache – and he spotted a strange little skin prick on his arm and a bruise.

The next morning, the symptoms did not disappear and Laux went to see his doctor, who advised him to go to the emergency room. Doctors confirmed evidence of a needle stick, and Laux was tested for HIV and hepatitis. His results came back negative, like those of other victims so far.

“I’ve given up on going to concerts since it happened,” Laux said.

Hundreds of kilometers (miles) away, Leanne Desnos recounted a similar experience after visiting a club in the southwestern city of Bordeaux in April. Desnos, also 18, passed out the next day, feeling dizzy and experiencing hot flashes while at a fast food restaurant. When she returned home, she realized that she had an injection mark on her arm. After seeing reports on social media about the mysterious bites, she went to a clinic to get tested for infections. She is still waiting for the results.

Residents of Paris, Toulouse, Nantes, Nancy, Rennes and other cities in France have reported being stuck with a needle without their knowledge or permission. The people targeted, who are mostly women, show visible injection marks, often bruising, and report symptoms like feeling drowsy.

The French national police say 302 people have filed formal complaints for such needle sticks. Several police investigations are underway in different regions, but no suspects have yet been arrested, no needles have been found and the motive remains unclear.

No victims reported sexual assault; one of them said to have been robbed, in Grenoble in April, according to the newspaper Le Monde.

According to a national police official, two people have tested positive for GHB and may have ingested the drug in a drink. GHB, a strong anesthetic used by predators seeking to abuse or sexually assault victims, can only be detected in urine for 12 hours, the police official said.

The official and a doctor who plays a leading role in the fight against the phenomenon expressed doubts that the injections from the nightclub contained GHB, noting that to penetrate using a needle, the drug must be injected for several seconds, which most victims would notice.

“We have found no drugs or substances or objective evidence that supports the administration of any substance with illicit or criminal intent. What we fear most are people who contract HIV, hepatitis or any other infectious disease” because of the bites, said Dr Emmanuel Puskarczyk, head of the poison control center in the city of Nancy, in eastern France.

At the Nancy hospital, a specific procedure has been created to optimize the care of victims. Patients with symptoms such as dizziness are being treated and blood and urine samples are being kept for five days in case anyone wants to complain.

“Every case is different. We see injection marks, but some people don’t have symptoms. When potential victims have symptoms like discomfort or black holes (in their memory), they’re not specific” , said Puskarczyk.

The police chief, who was not authorized to be named publicly under National Police policy, said: “At this stage we cannot talk about a specific modus operandi. There is no no similarity between the cases. The only similar thing is that people are injected with a needle in a festive context in different places in France.”

With clubbers venting their fear on social media and media coverage fueling anxiety, the French Interior Ministry launched a national awareness campaign this month. The police distribute leaflets to clubbers and discuss prevention measures with club owners.

In the UK, Parliament published a report in April on the consumption of drinks and needles in pubs and nightclubs after a sudden increase in such incidents last year. He said police reported about 1,000 needle-injection cases across the country around October 2021, when many students returned to campuses after coronavirus restrictions eased.

However, the Parliament report said there was a lack of data to judge the seriousness of the problem. It’s unclear if anyone was prosecuted for needle sticks, or how many victims were injected with a drug or other substance.

“No one knows how widespread doping is, whether by drink, drug or needle, and no one knows what drives perpetrators to do it. Anecdotal evidence suggests the practice is widespread and dangerous “, did he declare.

A series of similar incidents involving people being pricked with needles at nightclubs, a football match and at the Belgian Pride Parade have been reported in neighboring Belgium. Last month, the Brussels public prosecutor’s office opened two investigations following complaints from women who said they were bitten during the Pride parade in downtown Brussels. March organizers said in a statement they had been made aware of several cases and urged potential victims to seek medical attention at hospitals.

Back in France, as investigations continue without anyone being found guilty, rapper Dinos interrupted his concert in Strasbourg this week to warn his fans of the risks, and insisted: “It has to stop “.

Police investigate latest alleged drinking spike at Mosh nightclub after 18-year-old woman fell ill

Police are appealing for information after an incident in which a young woman allegedly had her drink at Mosh nightclub in Leicester. It comes after a number of similar incidents at the club last year.

The alleged victim, 18, fell ill after visiting the club late on Saturday night. The incident was reported to police at 4.30am yesterday and officers spoke to the woman.

Now Leicestershire Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. A police spokesman said: “Shortly before 4.30am yesterday a report was received that an 18-year-old woman had fallen ill at a nightclub in St Nicholas Place, Leicester. Officers were present and spoke to the woman.”

In October last year, LeicestershireLive reported that the nightclub had set up special ‘welfare staff’ to make clubbers feel safer after a series of reported spikes led to some people feeling boycott as well as other places.

An Instagram post featuring the team on the nightclub’s official page said: “Our job is to help you feel safe and to listen to any concerns you may have. If you have any issues, please let us know. know, we’re here to make sure you are taken care of.”

In December last year, LeicestershireLive released official data on Leicestershire police caseload peaks for the previous five years. According to official data, 257 incidents – 192 reported by women or girls and 65 by men or boys – had been reported to the force since the start of 2016.

However, an astonishing 72 of them were reported to police in October – including 29 cases which allegedly involved the use of a needle to inject a victim. In each of the past five years, the average number of ‘spikes’ incidents officially recorded with police each month had been in the single digits, with some months passing without any being reported.

The data showed that before October, using a syringe had only been mentioned by four people in five years. A significant number of cases are believed to have occurred in private homes, but 160 involved licensed premises – mostly bars, nightclubs and student unions.

Leicestershire Police Chief Superintendent Shane O’Neill said at the time: “Doping, where someone adds drugs or alcohol to another person’s drink or injects them without their knowledge, is illegal. Whether done as a prank or with the intent to steal or assault the victim, we want people to be vigilant.



Police have received hundreds of spike reports in recent years, including a spike last year

“If you’re drinking with strangers, be aware of what’s going on around you and if you have any suspicions about someone, report it to staff immediately. It’s always good to have a drinking buddy .

“If you’re going out with a friend or friends, keep an eye on them. If they seem to be more drunk than you think, if they are dizzy or if they speak badly, take control and make sure they are okay and, if they concern you, make sure whether he gets medical help or returns home safely.”

The alcohol peak can occur in any situation, at home or in the evening. However, according to Leicestershire Police, there are things you can do to protect yourself:

  • Never leave your drink unattended, whether alcoholic or not
  • Don’t accept a drink from someone you don’t know
  • Avoid over-drinking by sticking to UK ‘low-risk’ drinking guidelines
  • Stay with your friends and look out for each other

The Force also suggests people take the following steps if they come across someone they think may have been doped:

  • Notify a bar manager, bouncer or staff member
  • Stay with them and keep talking to them
  • Call an ambulance if their condition deteriorates
  • Don’t let them go home on their own
  • Don’t let them go with someone you don’t know or trust
  • Don’t let them drink more alcohol – it could lead to more serious problems

Anyone with information about this weekend’s incident is asked to contact Leicestershire Police on 101, quoting reference 22*307207.

So here at ChronicleLive, ahead of the busy holiday weekend ahead, we thought we’d take a look at all the late night bars and nightclubs in the area, compiling a top ten list of the most favorable according to the ever-stalwart Google reviewers.

10. Pop World – 14 Bigg Market, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

3.8 out of 5 stars based on 348 reviews

At number 10 there is none other than Pop World, which sits in the bustling and bustling Bigg’s Market. Dubbed “a late-night bar with a difference”, it’s an exciting establishment packed with personality.

Hosting an abundance of different local DJs every night, revelers can dance to nerdy music on the spectacular dance floor, with retro wigs, goggles and inflatables also available to add an element of madness to their evening.

Gemma Brians wrote: “I love coming to Popworld. It has the best atmosphere and lovely, friendly staff, including DJs, bar staff and doorman.

“DJ Trig is very entertaining playing the best music and creating a fantastic atmosphere. Always a pleasure to visit.”

9. Sinners – 63 Newgate Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

3.8 out of 5 stars based on 402 reviews

Open seven nights a week, Sinners in Newcastle. Billed as “Newcastle’s (and probably the world’s) most infamous, notorious and favorite student treble bar”, the description pretty much says it all.

With two music floors playing contrasting indie and house music on each – students flock to Sinners no matter the day to make the most of the cheap highs and lackluster Gotham-like atmosphere (RIP!).

Joshua Beck, commented: “Not bad honestly, I always thought Sinners had a bad reputation but after going inside it’s totally unwarranted.

“Sleek vibe, great alt-rock/metalcore playlist, live DJ, and they sell buckets every day of the week. If you’re a Rise fan or miss how sticky Gotham’s floors used to be, Sinners might be for you.”

8. Howlers – 28-32 Collingwood St, Newcastle upon Tyne

The only bar in Newcastle with an adult ball bar. . . Yes, you read that right!

All in all, a place where some adults can be big kids if they want – while more serious parties can enjoy a sizzling night out in another part of the club.

Vince Smith, reviewed the bar and said: “First time and I have to say we had a great night. It’s a big club with three different big areas with different types of music. There was also entertainment on the main stage.

“There’s a ball pit that people seemed to like but not for me.”

“And thank you sir for coming too. It must not have been easy, and we think you are sincerely sorry. Appreciate the honesty.”

With the new social media post came floods of comments, with Facebook users praising the man for coming forward.

One user said: “Amazing this is great news and I definitely thank the man for coming forward and admitting his mistakes.”

While another said: “It’s amazing guys, it’s good that he came and raised his hand. Too many people would have just ignored the message and laughed at it.”

“It took him a long time to do this and credit where it was due, but it shouldn’t have happened in the first place.”

Glasgow nightclub boss warns ScotRail schedule could impact gig-goers

A Glasgow nightclub boss has raised concerns about the impact of Scotrail’s reduced hours on attendance at music events in the city.

The new timetable came into effect this week with more than 700 services cut and some last trains leaving before 8 p.m. due to ongoing wage disputes.

With a summer season busy with big names visiting the city, industry professional Donald MacLeod fears concertgoers will have no way of getting home unless the driver shortage is resolved.

He said the scottish sun“The Scottish Government really needs to pull their fingers back because it’s just a mess at the moment.

“This Saturday, for example, you have Alice Cooper and The Cult at The Hydro – very high prices – but they don’t finish until 10:30 or 10:45 p.m.

“And how long does it normally take to get from the Hydro to the stations?”

“On Monday we have a show at the Barrowlands with Meshuggah and the same evening you have My Chemical Romance at The Hydro, how are people supposed to go home?

“It’s going to cause huge problems, especially in Glasgow where you already have a shortage of taxis.”

He said: “We were the first to close and the last to open when the pandemic hit and now we are bearing the brunt of it again.

“A general feeling of negativity could mean that people are just not going out.

“Places like the Garage and the Cathouse have a 10 p.m. curfew, but that’s a pretty tight deadline.

“In some cases we may open the doors earlier, but by then people have already made up their minds.

“God forbid the last train from Glasgow is cancelled.”

“Then you have a whole host of events coming up this summer including massive shows at Hampden Park and of course TRNSMT.

“There are time limits set for these bands to play and be under contract and the license itself is granted on that. How do you accommodate this? »

Speaking about the reduced timetable yesterday, ScotRail Service Manager David Simpson said: “We are keen to resolve the dispute as soon as possible and the timetable will run for as long as necessary in order to provide a more reliable service.

“The schedule will be reviewed and any improvements or returns to normal will be communicated via the ScotRail website, mobile app and social media channels.”

Michael Gove’s Memorable Moments After Scouse Impression, From Cocaine Confession to Nightclub Dancing

“Still trying to figure out what happened. I hope Mr. Gove is well.

Those are the words of BBC presenter Dan Walker, following a bizarre interview with Upgrade Secretary Michael Gove on Wednesday.

The MP for Surrey Heath imitated two different accents, with a hint of sarcasm, as he answered questions about the cost of living crisis.

The peculiar nature of Mr Gove’s performance was such that some people online, including a few MPs, jokingly asked if the minister had been under the influence.

Mr Gove is described by some of his colleagues as an eccentric who can sometimes take an innovative approach when trying to get his point across.

He’s also had a few controversial moments over the years, ranging from admitting to taking cocaine as a young journalist to being filmed alone ‘at a party on the tiles’, raving the night away in Aberdeen.

Michael Gove suggested it was ‘bonkeroony’ to suggest the PM should quit Partygate

(PA wire)

Take a look back at some of those memorable moments.

‘Calm’

Let’s start with Mr Gove’s most recent episode – this interview with the BBC on Wednesday morning.

The upgrade secretary adopted Liverpudlian and American accents at different points during questioning when asked why the government had not included in the Queen’s Speech on Tuesday any measures to help families cope with rising bills.

He suggested the lack of an emergency budget to deal with the crisis was “no big deal”, saying people should “calm down” in a Scouse voice.

Labour’s shadow leveling secretary Lisa Nandy lambasted him for ‘making jokes and using silly voices as families across the country struggle’ to make ends meet. “It’s not a game…Take it seriously.” Do your job,” she added.

Admission of cocaine

During the 2019 Conservative Party leadership campaign to replace former Prime Minister Theresa May, Mr Gove admitted to taking cocaine on “a number of occasions” – which he said he “deeply regrets”.

The then environment secretary said he used drugs at social gatherings as a young journalist.

“I took drugs many times at social events over 20 years ago,” he said. The daily mail. “At the time, I was a young journalist. It was a mistake. I look back and think, “I wish I hadn’t done that”.

Michael Gove goes to 10 Downing Street

(PENNSYLVANIA)

Party the night away in Aberdeen

Hilarious footage showed the moment Mr Gove was spotted dancing at a nightclub in his hometown of Aberdeen.

He was spotted throwing shapes and two-stepping into the early hours at the downtown Pipe nightclub on a Saturday night.

The 54-year-old, who recently divorced his longtime wife Sarah Vine, waved at the camera clearly enjoying Parliament’s summer recess.

Musician Emma Lament, who posted the videos on Instagram, wrote in the captions that the Tory MP was ‘giving her big licks’ on the dance floor.

Michael Gove spotted raving at Aberdeen club

water failure

When asked about possible trade deals with the United States at a meeting of the government’s future relations with the EU committee in March 2020, Mr Gove appeared to laugh at his own response, before taking a jug on the desk and put out his own paperwork, and possibly his cell phone in the water.

He finally directed the stream of liquid into a single-use plastic cup in front of him.

The jockey was celebrating after winning the £250,000 Archer race at Rockhampton Racecourse in Australia earlier on Saturday.

Butler, who has earned over £4m in his career, took the Emerald Kingdom 10-1 win.

He was out for a few drinks with some buddies when he went to the bathroom.

It was then that he was apparently turned on by another reveler and forced to spend a night in hospital before being booked in for surgery in Brisbane on Sunday.

Heidi said: “They’re going to take a helicopter and fly it to Brisbane.

“He was hit by the King when he went to the toilet last night in one of the nightclubs here in Rockhampton.

“It broke his jaw in five places.

“He’s aware, responsive and all like that. He’s fine but the scanner came back and he broke it badly.”

Incredibly, Butler made it home with Heidi before the extent of the damage became clear.

She added: “I’ve been through a few boxes of tissues but we’re getting better.

“We have to think positive with all of this because it would have been 100 times worse.

“We had the best day at the races on Saturday and for that to happen I just don’t know what to say.”

Butler added that the attack meant he had gone “from the penthouse to the s***house”.

‘It’s unwarranted for what they did:’ Man arrested outside Wynwood nightclub claims police used excessive force – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – One of four men who were arrested outside a nightclub in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood said officers used excessive force during the difficult removal, leaving him bloodied and bruised.

Christian Llanos spoke to 7News after leaving Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West Miami-Dade on Saturday.

He maintained his innocence during Friday morning’s encounter with officers outside Centro Wynwood.

“Disappointed, completely, because we didn’t do anything wrong,” he said.

Llanos said chaos unfolded after he and a group of friends left the club and saw his brother being attacked.

“Two random guys stopped, walked up to my brother, slapped him,” he said.

Shortly after running to help his brother, Llanos said, two Miami City police officers arrived.

“The officer hits me from the back, completely hanging on the side of my face. They handcuffed us; [the officer] grabs my leg and pulls me while I’m handcuffed. I hit my head on the car,” Llanos said.

It was then, Llanos said, that the men who had attacked them before the officers arrived fled.

When the officers started beating him and his friends, Llanos said, his friend Antonio Ordonez took out his cell phone and started recording.

Ordonez spoke to 7News on Friday.

“[The officer] is just hitting it nonstop,” he said.

Footage shows an officer repeatedly punching Llanos as he lay on the sidewalk.

Llanos and three others were arrested and imprisoned.

But video posted online by Only in Dade showed men throwing punches at police before being shot.

In the arrest report, an officer wrote that a man “punched me in the ribs/waist, grabbed me aggressively and pushed me.”

Another officer said, “I was hit on the right side of my face.

But Llanos said the officers’ response was excessive.

“We didn’t do anything wrong. All we were doing was defending someone very dear to us, because these two guys wanted to fight for some reason. We don’t even know why,” he said.

Llanos hopes the situation and the officer who he said left his face scarred and swollen will be fully
