How are they allowed to have giant speakers and amplifier on the sidewalk and a DJ blasting music and screaming for the microphone? Yeah it’s not late at night but is the starving all the residents in the neighborhood and some of us businesses.


Except that people walking down the street have to listen to the blaring music, and blocking the sidewalk.


I walked by today and they were blasting rap music with someone playing DJ at 10am really?
So stupid.


I’m usually very excited about new businesses opening in empty storefronts, but this is a total bust. So many lackluster franchises which don’t benefit our community. The late Radioshack as well as Sprint, MetroPCS, T-Mobile, now Boost Mobile.

Oh god….I think I’m changing. Am I becoming another generic dissatisfied complaint poster?
