6 Months & Counting...
The Greensboro City Council, in 6 months time (February 4th, 2006, 2 b exact), is supposed to restart the battle to "zone-out" the adult businesses within the city. Personally, I think it's a waste of time. I don't think that "Christie's Cabaret" spent over $150,000.00 2 b forced 2 move out of the city, even though the city finally made them shut down "Xanadu's" next door.
"Xanadu's" shouldn't have been there in the 1st place, even though when it 1st opened yrs. ago it was technically outside the city limits. U can't have multiple adult businesses that close 2gether, unless u r "grandfathered" in, like the old "Teasers" strip club/massage parlor/adult video store/lingerie shop that used 2 b on High Point Rd. yrs. ago used 2 b (The owner died, that's why it no longer exist. It's now a parking lot 4 "Waffle House.").
As a matter of fact, the whole reason that it was extended for 2 more yrs. in 2004 (The original fight started waaaay back on October 16, 1999, when the city went after the Asian massage parlors, which was just a front 4 "sex slavery.") because there weren't enough places 2 relocate all of the adult businesses that were open at the time. I believe that they'll have a similar problem come next year, especially when "Christie's Cabaret" & their legal team reassemble their forces as well.
There was even a push 2 license "adult business workers" during that time, 2. I'm not sure if it passed or not. If it did, I need to get MY license, LOL!
I smell some more bullsh*t from the city when this issue comes up again...
