Last night I attended our Community Board meeting to speak about my opposition to a new liquor license on my block. Without going into details which are not relevant to this story, I wanted to illustrate my point that my experience with their management had not been positive, and that I had reservations about how they would handle a potential crowd of drinkers. To that end I told a true story about a run in I had with one of the managers in front of their restaurant where his response to me was to curse me out in a rather vicious way.
Before I even got home there was an email waiting for me from a local blogger asking me about the story. It was a colorful story, and according to him the room gasped when I told it. (I didn't hear the gasp because all I can hear when I'm speaking publicly is my heart racing.) News travels fast. Watch what you say.
