Calls for Service to Olympic Cafe
Post and photo by the Hawthorne Hawkman.
Today I was given a report of the calls for service at the Olympic Cafe at 923 W Broadway Avenue. The Olympic Cafe is requesting permission to stay open until 3 a.m. The Hawthorne Neighborhood Council and the Old Highland neighborhood group have both opposed this ludicrous move.
ADDENDUM: The Chair of the Old Highland Neighborhood Association has posted a comment regarding the statement above. That association has not taken an official stand on the issue. The more formally recognized neighborhood group, NRRC, has at this time, opposed the extended hours.
From the January 1, 2009 through February 17, 2010, there have been twenty-two calls for service, listed below...
The incidents are described with a date/time, then the problem, then the disposition.

My first thought upon reading this list was, "Hey, 22 calls for service in a year, maybe that's not so bad." My next thought was, "THAT'S BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T OPEN UNTIL 3 A.M.!!!"
