Let me get this right, you are complaining about a 4 hour event that could bring hundreds of people into downtown Wilmington? If this was an ongoing thing I could understand your complaints, but a one time event is a whole different story. You used the word cherry pick, but aren't potential customers free to take their business anywhere they choose? Maybe you guys should offer some amazing specials that day to try and sway some of those customers back to you.
I work downtown and patronize downtown restaurants 3 or 4 times per week for lunch, please let us all know which restaurant you own so I can be sure never to bring my business to your establishment again.
