After the 100 person brawl on Water Street outside of Mambo Drinks last week, City Manager Ed Augustus and Police Chief Steve Sargent held a meeting of concerned business owners in the Canal District. But at this meeting the City Manager made it clear that no one was allowed to bring up the ONLY problematic bar in that area which is killing all the other businesses – Mambo Drinks. Because Ed Augustus is a useless coward who is too afraid to do what is best for the small business owners in that area for fear of being labeled a racist.
“A few references were made to the 44 incidents recorded at Mambo in the two years it has been open – although City Manager Ed Augustus, Jr. – who was joined at the meeting by WPD Chief Steve Sargent, Planning Director Steve Rolle and City Councilors Candy Mero-Carlson, Moe Bergman, Khrystian King and Konnie Lukes – said that was an unfair number to throw around since it counts all calls made to a location and not just violations. Augustus said progress made in the Canal District was “awesome,” but said an uptick in incidents was to be expected because of that.”
After that the tone was set, and the Canal District Association’s gutless President and Vice President continued to pretend that Mambo is not the cause of the problems:
“It’s really going to take all of us to change it,” CDA President Mullen Sawyer said. “Perception has the chance to taint reality.”
CDA Vice President Ed Russo put his views simply. “It’s not just Mambo – sorry folks, let’s cut the shit,” Russo said.
And according to Mambo’s they should not be punished because the gang members outside of the club were preying on patrons as they walked outside of the bar. Except there’s only one problem – Turtleboy got ahold of the police report and it turns out Mambo Drinks is lying. Let’s check it out:
So 100-200 people in a crowd that would not be dispersed were beating each other up with weapons. Yup, that happens at normal bars all the time.
So they had over 200 people? Pretty sure that’s WAY over capacity for a joint that size. If there was ever a fire there we’d have a Warwick tragedy on our hands.
“Iverson had been at Mambo with his girlfriend.” Iverson is a 20 year old male. Another underage individual served at Mambo Drinks. But we can’t point that out because that would be racist.
This is the type of crowd that Mambo Drinks attracts. They are responsible for this. Don’t tell me that all of the other bars attract this crowd. Gangs have not taken over the Dive Bar. Patrons at Smokestack Barbecue are not pulling officers away from fights and actively interfering with arrests in order to protect gang bangers from New York.
“There were no other neighboring bars open on this night.”
Wait, a minute, I’m confused. Because at that meeting last week CDA VP Ed Russo said this:
“It’s not just Mambo.”
And President Mullen Sawyer said this:
“It’s really going to take all of us to change it.”
How can “all of us change it,” if only one bar was open that night? How was it “not just Mambo,” when Mambo was the ONLY BAR OPEN THAT NIGHT???!!!! Oh that’s right, Ed Russo is just a gigantic poonstachio who is too scared of being labeled a racist to tell the truth.
He also owns the new Lock 50 restaurant, which features overprices organic yuppie food. Hopefully gang bangers like Shaved Asparagus and Goat Cheese Panna Cotta.
So Mambo Drinks is legally responsible for stabbings that take place outside of its business. Good to know. So why aren’t we allowed to point fingers at them? Oh yea, that’s right. Racism.
Well this is knew. Mambo Drinks told us these gang members were waiting OUTSIDE of the club. Turns out they were in the club the entire time and getting drunk. This is the third person we’ve been able to prove in a week that has been served underage at Mambo Drinks. What else do you need to shut them down?
There was a license commission meeting this morning about this. It was determined that nothing will happen with Mambo Drinks. Ya got that? No punishment. This is what the fear of being called racist has done to our society.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
