More criticism mounts

I’ve talked to a few more business owners who are, to say the least, not happy with the crowds outside Brick City. I’m heading out there tonight and tomorrow to check it out myself. Here are some of their comments.

Sherry Hopson, co-owner, Headliners Salon and Studio:

We need an understanding of what the ordinances are now. And maybe we need strengthened ordinances and more enforcement of the ordinances that are already there.

Kris Blondin
, owner, Vin Grotto:

(World Vision) invites kids down to the area for a function – and that’s fine – but it’s about what happens outside of the venue. There seems to be no supervision or any concern after the event or during the event. I think there’s a responsibility to the neighborhood when you run a business.

UPDATE: Apparently there were no shows Friday. Or at least it looked mighty empty the few times I drove past it. I’ll check again Saturday.
