A Good Argument 3

Joliet, Illinois is apparently debating keeping bars open until 5am, in an attempt to give the city a feel more like Rush Street in Chicago.

While making the obvious points that Joliet is clearly not Chicago (and should embrace that fact rather than try to create a pale imitation of the larger city), former CRC resident Emily adds an extremely good point about why a later closing time is a bad idea in her town:

Considering that in recent weeks there have been two fights at the Joliet Chuck E. Cheese, I hate to see what would happen with extended bar hours.


Thanks to Coop for pointing this out.

    Hey Ellen!
    Glad you enjoyed the column. Here are the two entries about the Chuck E. Cheese throwdowns in question. Apparently the ball pit isn’t the only dangerous thing at Chuck E.’s these days.

    What kills me is that the youngest person involved in any of those fights is 17.
