    Default Harpootlian going out with a vengeance against Five Points bars ?

    Reading article this am in P&C about old Hooptie going after liquor licenses at several bars in the Five Points , which is also the area his district is in if I read correctly (and where he resides )

    He claims they do not serve “hot meals” which is part of the requirements to serve “liquor by the drink” rule

    This one is going to be interesting to watch transpire

    He’s been going after those places since he got in office and has shut a few down. I’m glad my college years are long gone, the five points of today doesn’t seem as fun.

    I saw where they're wanting to put up a parking garage in 5 points.. sounds like a good place to get a kidney stolen or a eleven pm rape.

    That sonofabitch has skin in that 5pts game, for sure.

    He's had a hard on for changing the face of 5pts for real estate purposes for many years. He'll win, I'm sure.

    But, he's still a piece of shit.

    I haven't cared for five points since Rockafellas closed.

    Daniel has been trying to get that parking garage since I was in school in 2007.

    I've been held up at gunpoint in a parking garage just above five points...back in 2004'ish. Can't say that I've been back to five points since then.

    His press conference conceding to Russell was pure gold. He couldn’t believe he’d actually been beaten. The state house is a much better place without him in it!

    Microwave and a case of Hot Pockets will solve the "hot meals" issue.

    Personally, Im just happy that I made it through 4 years of going to 5 points without being shot, stabbed, beat to a pulp by gangs, or sexually assaulted.

    I saw the red hot chili peppers there in 1989.

    I lived a block or so off Five Points, walked through there at least twice a day, and I never saw so much as a fist fight. I did, however, see some weird shit one night after I ate a handful of mushrooms.

    We saw Green Day there in like 92ish, I remember they blew up right after we saw them at lollapalooza in 94. I band from here opened up for them, they played there rwice.. and a few other of the 90s hip bands. I think I was like 16 maybe 17 the first time I walked into there, with my hipster friends. You could always pick me out because I refused to dress hipster. I was usually in cords, duck boots, and a t-shirt. That place had some badass bands come through.

    It was an institution.

    I also have memories of group therapy, but they are blurrier. My friends back then drank Heineken and Jose Cuervo gold shots. Makes for a pretty violent buzz. Horrific. But at 19 years old and I was happy I made it past the guy working the door.

    Parking in that area has always been a pretty hot mess. Just figured who's gonna give up the real estate is the issue.

    What they should do is pull all the parking violation $ to pay for it. That should about cover it.
