Although I liked the ambiance of the bar itself, I still must say: Good riddance to bad rubbish. Plus, I seriously doubt they met the "cigar bar" exemption that requires at least 25% of total bar revenue to come from cigar sales. I stopped going to Whiskey years ago.
@Spusan: We reported that TeerMark was under contract in April, based on a conversation with the prospective owner. If you read the blog carefully, you will see that I noted the TeerMark and the old Ringside are vacant; I didn't make any assumptions about their leasing or ownership status. I would argue, though, that those buildings are commercial failures at present because of the lack activity there.
Wow, can you pass off any more assumptions as facts? I'm surprised that you found out business isn't going well from the same FB message that I read, which says nothing of the sort. If you had done a bit more work, you'd realize that TeerMark is in negotiations to be purchased and the old Ringside building is already leased. Indy, there's nothing wrong with stating some simple facts and saying "The owner could not be reached for further comment."
Yes, some of the staff there could be extremely rude. I long stopped going.
Sorry to see them go.
Too bad for downtown, but this place was always too snooty for Durham
Proudly, any semblance that you are an intelligent, objective thinker just flew out the window with this incredibly moronic, male-centric, out-dated notion that somehow when a young male person is abused by a female, somehow it's a good thing. Your true colors are showing - and your myopia is astounding,
Oops, I think I goofed here. This case looks like the female teacher had sex with a girl. Oh goodness, this is an LGBT issue... Who does this woman think she is, a female Catholic priest?!
This seems like an epidemic-- women teachers having sex with underage young men. I say to the young kid, SCORE DUDE! But why did you let the cat out of the bag, keep cool and quiet when more was forthcoming. Dang, why didn't this happen to me when I was a kid? And I had some hot teachers, too...dang.
I am the Operations Manager for Anne Graham Lotz' ministry, AnGeL Ministries, and I can assure that she is in no way connected with this demonstration, group, or function. This is a completely inaccurate use of her name and cause.
I think it is very sad that these supposed persons of faith, especially those related to Billy Graham as Mrs. Lotz is, are condemning people instead of loving them. It is anathema to Jesus.
