The Rap On Ybor City

How’s this for some simple rules of thumb concerning night clubs in Ybor City?

1) Drink specials and nonstop hip-hop are incompatible. Not with each other, necessarily, just with this city’s historic/entertainment district, which doesn’t wish to be known as Tampa’s epicenter of rap.

If this well-Fueled powder keg should explode, instead of merely propelling violence piecemeal, Ybor – and Tampa by extension — will be years recovering from the national notoriety.

2) If a business needs to pat down its customers for weapons, it doesn’t need to be in business.
