Nickels Moves to Shut Down Another Belltown Club

posted by on November 9 at 17:06 PM

This time it’s Ximaica. And, really, wouldn’t we all be better off with another church in Belltown anyway?

Churches—people are safe at church, and the wide selection of places to worship is why people move to Belltown in the first place.

People move to Belltown for a lot or reasons.
One of the reasons they move away is public safety.
More people would want to move here and more would stay longer if it were safer.

Speak for yourself, I stay here for urban ambiance!

Where else could I kick back, relax, sit on my balcony, and watch a drunk hobo try to beat up a street sign and lose?

Who needs TV here?

Dan, people pay a lot to live in this city. I'm sure a safe majority of them would rather live next to a church than a club that attracts human garbage. Unless of course it's a church feeding the homeless and atracting human garbage.

You know, people are blowing this whole safety thing way out of proportion.

Seattle? It's Wusstown USA. Hell, I'm more afraid of your corrupt cops than I am of your street thugs.

i work next door to this place and it is crazy trouble every weekend. if it does get shut down, i think my chances of getting shanked after work will depreciate substantially. but fuck the mayor.

#8 - they say the fat girls have the sweetest pussy, so

if you could ever get you dick in the mayor's ass it might just take you to heaven and then your nuts explode, you know

the fat male ass thing

would that be bad

(by the way, this blog is full of butt fuckers, with pride. you are throwing out a straight high schooler insult, wrong blog)

The mayor is a canny politician, and the next round he will run on public safety, ALWAYS a good issue.

Guns in bars do not fit any concept of public safety, sorry to all you drunks and swilling pigs and politically constipated

I love Ximaica, It's easy to get in. Now what am I going to do Saturday nights ) : And its really not that bad over there

From the neighbor complaints about bars - all bars - in Belltown, it seems that they don't move their for the nightlife, either.
