Access to Lewis Street alley in dispute
FRIDAY QUICK HITS
Alley in Dispute
UPDATED: Robert shared on his blog an email sent from a downtown resident’s group that raises concerns about a hip-hop performance this weekend at the club next to this alley.
Downtown Greensboro advocate, Eric Robert and the City of Greensboro are entangled in a battle over an alleyway behind Lewis Street. Robert owns the alleyway and is asking the city to stay off of it. At one time, the alleyway was open for anyone to use because Robert allowed that. Now, due to some back story involving backstabbing and Greensboro greed, things aren’t very friendly anymore. Several emails were exchanged recently and it is clear that the city and Robert have some serious issues about the alleyway. The battle is early and nobody really knows how long it will continue. One council member described the case as complicated and confusing.
Westgate Drive massage parlor
Greensboro Police Chief, Wayne Scott, recently told YES! that the GPD had monitored an unlicensed strip club that is being operated on Westgate Drive. The police are allegedly watching the club but have seen no activity. Scott reported that investigators watched the location last weekend but the club never opened. However, a quick look at Zillionaire’s Facebook page shows that the location did in fact hold an event at the location last weekend from 10pm to 2am. They even posted pictures of the strippers that came out to work and thanked them for doing so. It appears the police might have been watching the wrong location.
More unlicensed operations?
Greensboro welcomed its second unlicensed adult massage parlor this week when a massage place offering fetishes and other adult entertainment options opened on West Vandalia Road. The location is at 1130 West Vandalia Road. Suite A. Currently, there is no business license issued for that location. Their ad on Backpage says, “…sessions are all about you, so lay back, relax, close your eyes and enjoy!”They claim to have a friendly and sexy American Staff working in a discrete and clean environment. Hot towels and soothing music can be provided along with fetishes.
