Illegal AND violent activity like specifically illegal violent activity, or should those who hang out where fun things are illegal but non-violent not really worry?!

"Club Le Elegant," on Plymouth Road, is right near my house. I hope it ends up being closed down, just so I won't have to see that ridiculous, mis-written name anymore. And I'm sure that it is quite fuckin' elegant, indeed.

Not so much anymore, but in my day, I sampled the wares of many, many of Detroit's finest taverns and inns. I gotta tell ya, if Ms. Worthy has singled out these four for this type of treatment, they must be spectacular indeed.

Here's a fun thing to follow up if you like: name a tavern not on this list, which you think would make a reasonable fifth target for Ms. Worthy's concern. I can think of a couple dozen but my information is wildly out of date.

Also, of course, if any of my fellow bloggers are or have recently been denizens of any of the filthy four, come on kids, spill :-) What really goes on in these dens of alleged iniquity? Inquiring minds want to know!

The places that really need to be closed down have no actual names and certainly no business licenses. Why don't you crack down on the blind pig/after hours joints, Kym?

I'm surprised to see the Zoo Bar on that list. It seemed pretty well run the last time I was in there...

With all the shootings that've taken place outside of it why would be surprised the county wants it closed?

From today's News:
Police were called to the Zoo Bar on East Congress 20 times in 2006 because of assaults, gunplay and illegal drug use

That doesn't sound like a well run bar to me.

I didn't know it was prone to shootings. There weren't any issues the times I have gone.

Damn, 1980 is a long time to hold a grudge!

You'd think they would have changed their name in the past 27 years like most other clubs do to escape their record...
