The City Council will vote at its zoning meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, on a new proposal that would put a stop to entertainment of all kinds after midnight inside bars and restaurants within 400 feet of a residential area.

Anywhere outside of uptown, this would mean no live or recorded music, no karaoke, no comedians, no playing pool or other entertainment-related activities after midnight. (In other words, the good places in the good neighborhoods. Uptown establishments would not be affected.)

Personally I have no issue with that, if you want to party all night go to Vegas.

I also fail to see the problem. The CLog ineffectively tries to make a reference to Footloose. Footloose was about prohibiting fun due to fear of moral decay. This is a matter of people who'd like to get some damn sleep.

Also, the writers didn't include the exact wording of the zoning change. While anything is possible, it's probably not as restrictive as the writers say.

I have no problem with most karaoke in clubs as it isn't generally that loud, however, DJs and bands present a different issue. I don't mind them either if they don't have the bass on full blast. I live about 400 feet from a club and it really gets bad sometimes. I can hear the music through my pillow. The place doesn't start getting busy until after 11 pm. This is a bit much. It seems that the club owners disregard the neighbors in many cases and could care less about noise, trash, etc. I have no objection to bands that play soft music, but to hear rap at midnight just boils my blood. Besides the noise until 2:00 am, I have to listen to cars leaving for a half hour at least with their car radios beaming as loud as possible Believe me, I love to go out and have a good time, but I believe that there is a place for that and less than 400 feet from a residential area isn't one of them.

If you want complete silence at midnight, don't move near a bar. Just like people who complain after moving near a speedway or airport, there are other options.

That being said, there must be some compromise of sound level at 400' that could be achieved.

What does that mean? Are you saying that young professionals are leaving because of noise or because city ordinances are being generated with the common interest of residents in mind?

First, it wasn't a bar when I moved in or else I wouldn't have picked this particular spot. Secondly, I don't care about "complete silence", just annoying, loud bass vibrations until 2:30 am. My idea of compromise would be to make it 500 feet at least.

I corrected your post for my own purposes.
