......gotta' love the the new additions to E.B.'s upscale retail infrastructure. Gives a whole new meaning to, "Happy Hour".......

"Happy hour!" LOL! A google search revealed that the Tilted Kilt (aka Hooters in Kilts) had been successfully sued by the city of Evanston, Illinois to prevent them from opening downtown . Guess they correctly anticipated incidents like this one. How long has this place been open, and already the police had to be summoned?

Maybe he was upset when he found out the White Castle hadn't opened yet! Way to go Mayor Stahl, did you count this place in your mythical 40% Rt. 18 vacancy reduction? and since you cut the police this will mean more overtime and less coverage of residential areas.

Because this can't happen anywhere but a sports bar?

This is what happens when drinking is encouraged with scantily dressed women who are encouraged to sit with customers to chat with them.

I don't think we can blame the mayor for this one. Brunswick Square Mall is privately owned, and The TK is not seen from Route 18. I doubt the town council had the power to say no to Simon when they made the ill-advised decision to lease the space to this type of restaurant. Does anybody know for a fact whether the mayor had the power to keep this restaurant out of Brunswick Square Mall? If yes, then he definitely messed up. And if not, does that mean that Simon could choose to rent to any business, like an "adult" bookstore if they were so inclined?

I think the only time the township would have a say is if the applicant had to have plans outside of either zoning or planning laws. However, I have to agree that this sort of establishment will more than likely have police situations. I have written to Simon that this sort of business is not family friendly and Panera is right next door.

Just wait until the Walmart clientele hits Route 18 and the town. They will keep the police very busy.

But EB needed another Hooters-like restaurant. The real Hooters is WAY on the other sign of town! Besides, EB also has two smoke shops for folks that need new bongs.

Don't forget the 400 rental apartments that are no longer being called luxury housing.

I was happy when Simon got rid of Megamovies. But Tilted Kilt doesn't belong in between two family restaurants.
