In other news last week The Pearl and Eclipse received complaints to 911. I was at Eclipse when the Fire Marshall arrived and the Fire Marshall said they were fine. But it seems to me someone is getting off on making calls to the Fire Marshall forcing the clubs and their patrons to be hassled for a head count. Don't get me wrong I'm totally for club safety. But I think it's silly for a couple reasons: First, someone is making fake calls to 911 just to cause trouble. And then also that you can open a club and a year down the road the law changes then that club has to change after all that the owners invested thinking this is my occupancy, this is what I have to work with, I can have a back patio, so can I put up christmas lights, this is a historic building that has been here for a hundred years and since I open but now since Joe Enviousclubowner/ Christian Parent is complaining I have to widen the doorways a half inch on each side or I'm getting shut down. Club owners need news letters.
I don't know if this is true but I heard that any club that opens on or after January 1, 2009, and that doesn't have overhead fire sprinklers, their capacity is only allowed to be 99 people tops no matter how big it is. That is just one more thing keeping people with dreams from being club owners unless they have a extra 20 grand for a sprinkler system. Ending, once again I just heard the 99 capacity thing, someone tell me if I'm wrong. I love firemen, I don't won't to burn up in a building, but will I ever get to see a band at a small club for under $5. Is it possible to be safe now without shutting a club down or keeping them from opening.
I just wanted to say that. With that said there was a club fire in Bangkok, Thialand that killed 54 people and injured 100 during last night's New Years Celebration.
