    Found this on Pilotonline.com

    Norfolk City Counsel is concerned about the crime at Waterside these days. Wonder what they have to say about the OC there now.

    I bet Bar Norfolk is pissed right now:shock: Looks like they will be sucking all of the night life out of Waterside. What a shame:?

    It just says they're going from a blanket permit (which businesses probably pay into under the property management) to a per-business basis. That will actually make it easier for them to pick-and-choose. What it will force is that businesses will have to police themselves better because it will be their own permits under scrutiny.

    Also, this way if one business has problems the others do not suffer for it.

    And yes, Bar Norfolk is probably pi$$ed.

    Not living in the area...: Why is Bar Norfolk probably pi$$ed?

    Because they are the "nightclub" venue, the meat-market of Waterside and they are the location that stands to lose the most if indiscretions should arise.

    Essentially they'll have to be 100% accountable for their own business, which means they'll have to actually check IDs and refuse service...

    The ABC in VA hasn't been fooling around lately. They've knocked the wind out of a few establishments and completely shut down several others that I am personally aware of.

    IIRC, it's been years since I've been there, but this used to be a kind of 3-story, short indoor mall when I was a kid.
    They basically turned it into a Mall of Bars/Restaurants (yes there are NO bars in VA...) so you can go from Bar Norfolk upstairs, to Hooters downstairs, then Crocodile Rocks w/out going outside and I THINK you were allowed to drink in between.
    It's a lot of fun if that's what you're into.

    With the new Town Point Park opening this weekend and this new license soon the whole area should be interesting for OC'rs. Wonder how the NPD and security at Waterside will be handing things.

    Hopefully they will be following the law and not bothering citizens engaged in legal activities. Either that or they'd best bring their checkbook with them.
