The overzealous residents of the Dakota condo complex, situationed next to Circuit nightclub aren’t satisfied. They managed to kill Circuit’s business by making them turn their music down and installing soundproofing. Note that the condo complex was built long after this strip of Broadway became partyboy central. Now they want to make the whole precinct dry. I think this is so goddamned stupid. You moved into the middle of Boystown and now you’re bitching that it’s noisy out? Get a fucking clue. What do you think anchors the economy where you live? All those nice shops and restaurants you wow your friends from the suburbs with are there because of the diversity and the buying power of gay consumers. It’s like every other year the residents of Wrigleyville get their panties twisted because of the Mardi Gras atmosphere around the ballpark before and after a game.
A guy I talked to last night said he has friends that live in that building and they don’t notice any noise and the city has yet to find them in violation of the noise ordinance. Broadway and Grace is probably one of the safest intersections to be at in Chicago at 4 am Saturday morning.
