UPDATE: Today’s Bee has a bigger story on Rome’s booze shenanigans. You should read it. The general manager drops a number of gem quotes. Among them, he blames people being on medication and antidepressants, and ladies not being able to walk in high heels. Can’t make this stuff up.
ORIGINAL POST: Did you notice that everything seemed quiet over at Granite Park’s Rome Nightclub lately? So we knew this was coming. It was only a matter of time.
CBS 47 reported this week that the club got dinged by Alcoholic Beverage Control. for a number of violations and will have to serve a 15-day suspension of its liquor license and two years of probation.
[T]he investigation into Club Rome’s possible violations began back in March, a month after it opened. It includes 16 allegations, like patrons fighting, urinating inside the club, vomiting because of consuming too much alcohol, and attacking a police officer. Fresno police met with the club owner to talk about the 42 times officers have had to respond to incidents.
Rome’s response? An ALL CAPS rant that said it would serve the suspension in December and then said the club the victim in all this.
I know what you’re thinking: At least they’ll be able to serve booze when “The Situation” comes to visit on Oct. 22. How tragic could that have been?
