For those of you who’ve been long time readers already know I wasn’t going to let this Metropolitan foolishness fade to black.
In fact, since I seemingly couldn’t get any answers that I needed; I did what every resourceful, tax paying Chicagoan should do-----I called the police.
Well not 911 but the 3rd District CAPS office.
I started chatting with one nice police officer who then referred me to another nice police officer.
I’m gonna be honest with you, I thought this was shaping up to be a pass the buck type of moment.
Fortunately for me that wasn’t the case.
Everyone over at the 3rd District CAPS office has been extremely responsive; so much so that I heard via the grapevine the nice people at TWO recently had a chat with the police.
Now I wasn’t there at this little pow wow but from what I understand the word has come down---ixnay on the parties.
Apparently (and allegedly) no one over at the main TWO office knew anything about the shenanigans on 65th Street.
But they know now.
From what I heard, the site manager took the brunt of the blame in the conversation between the police and the TWO.
While I know it sounds mushy and girlish, I hope he or she doesn’t loose their job---more than likely they won’t. That wasn’t my intention.
My intentions were two fold: (1) Find out who’s making the party decisions at the Metropolitan and (2) Have them understand why it’s not appropriate to book a series of teen parties in a residential neighborhood.
Or strippers for that matter.
So at this point, it appears that things very well may be settling down.
But you never know.
I’ll pass the word along to the neighbors---Vigilance from everyone is required.
