So, exactly where are dance clubs supposed to operate? Highland Park Village? Legacy? Legacy West? Lake Highlands Towne Centre?
What exactly does any town have against dance clubs?
Oh, it's all the drugs, and the drinking, and the crime, and the staying up late and all the sin? ...and rather than figuring out how to monitor the scene and keep club participants safe, the answer is just don't let it happen in the first place.
I understand very good folks want to make Deep Ellum into a nice place to live, but if turning the entertainment scene into something like Lower Greenville Ave rather than rip'roaring 1990s Deep Ellum, then those very good folks need to find another place to tame.
