Last night Stephan, owner of the Twilight Exit, gave us an update on where things stand with the school district’s opposition to his move over to 25th & Cherry.
The new twist is that the district wants him to sign a Good Neighbor Agreement that would keep his bar & restaurant closed before 5pm and after 10pm and all day on Sunday. That would obviously make it impossible to do business.
First of all, what business is it of the schools whether he’s open after 10pm or on Sundays? School’s not even in session then.
Second, all of the convenience stores around the school are open during those hours, so why can’t we have a well-managed restaurant that’s open then too?
So since you’re stuck at home today anyway, time to get back to the phones and email! Make the schools and liquor board know that you support the Twilight and want to have some dining and entertainment options in your neighborhood. Make sure to be polite and constructive!
