Evanston - Very high morals...

Must be a bunch of old Hag's living in that town.

Two stories:

One:
http://evanstonnow.com/story/governm...-over-sexy-bar

Two:

Citing “public safety concerns expressed by residents,” Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl issued a written statement Monday recommending denial of a liquor license application to the Tilted Kilt pub.

Tisdahl said the pub, which has sparked controversy among some Evanston residents who claim the company’s provocatively dressed waitresses essentially sell sex, “does not comply with recognized Evanston community standards.”

“The applicant confirmed at the second hearing that there would be no deviation in staff attire,” Tisdahl wrote. “Thus, there is no opportunity for the applicant to even attempt to comply with Evanston community standards.”

Tisdahl also stated that the applicant, Evanston commercial real estate owner Ted Mavrakis, “simply cannot overcome the strong community-based opposition to placing a congested and noisy bar in the proposed location.”

Mavrakis had hoped to bring Tilted Kilt to his Fountain Square building at 1601 Sherman Ave. In appearing before the city’s Liquor Control Review Board last week, Mavrakis said the pub would create jobs and help the city’s economy.

The final decision on the application rests with the city council.

Maybe they should take care of the Jungle before they worry about plaid skirts and titty shirts and their daughters who were born sluts who want to work there. Drugs and gangs should be their number one priority.

The law, which prevents more than three unrelated people from living together, has not been enforced for years. But on July 1, Evanston will begin enforcing it, which will force landlords to evict some of the hundreds — or thousands — of NU students who live in off-campus houses or apartments with more than two roommates, city officials confirmed to THE DAILY on Monday.

Well if any of you guys are from Evanston or in that area..... No Tilted Kilt for you. The Mayor (female btw) shot down the liquor license. What year is this again???

Until a few years ago I lived for seven years in Evanston, and still work here, so it was disappointing to hear this. But then this morning I heard that since Evanston fell through, the new location considered will be Morton Grove. That is where I live now, so hurray for me.

+1000 on the comment about Evanston residents being fair weather liberals. One of the biggest issues that these people shot down was a marina in south east Evanston. I still cannot get over the rationale used for that.

Heavy restrictions on liquor establishments in Evanston wouldn't be a surprise. It was the home of the Temperance Movement in this country for a long, long time.

There are plenty of places to drink in Evanston. Thousands of residents signed petitions opposing the granting of a license for Tilted Kilt. The mayor bowed to public pressure regarding this specific establishment.
