Borrow a Van. Put the Mayor & City Council aboard with a sharp hard nosed, agressive reporter. Send them to Raleigh. Have them insist the Governor return to Wilmington with the 3 State ABC Commissioners, the head of ALE & SBI.
Shut down Rhino and the other flagrant violators for 60 days while the ALE & SBI investigate the causes of these repeat incidents.
Based on the investigation, reinstate operating privileges OR permanently ban the owners from holding ABC permits or operating similar types of clubs anywhere in NC?
That ought to get someone's attention.
