Sounds like a fun time that is controlled with a strategy worth duplicating in other area bars/clubs.

Ok, for the clueless out there: this is a disaster waiting to happen, on several levels. Jamal Lewis is one of the owners? Icing on the cake. Can't wait for the follow-up stories...in the metro section, about arrests, fights, injury, etc.etc.etc. Don't kid yourself, it's gonna happen, and soon. Ugh.

Hey, thumbs up! People are going to drink and drug no matter what - might as well allow it in a structured environment where help is available when necessary, and everybody has a room to go to instead of having to drive afterwards. I'm 53 y.o., but if I was a little younger I would be psyched to join the fun. This is an outstanding idea!
"Big Johnson," "Topper" and "none" - from what I've seen, you losers don't have anything good to say about anybody or anything anyways, so who cares what you think, ya friggin trolls... sittin' around in your underware in your mommy's basement bashin' on everybody and everything... friggin get a life...

You're a 53y.o. that's completely out of touch, however you characterize me. Do you even know what "ex" is and what it does to your brain? Do you really believe the print in the Dispatch on the feel good warm fuzzy articles? Well I've got some swamp land in the south end we should talk about then.

Oh geez, you're so clever... Obviously you're keen insight into what is true, right, and beautiful has led you to the illustrious position of trolling the Topix blogs on a Sat. morning. You are just SO credible... I feel hurt by your castigation... pffft...

These are definately raves and there are lots of illegal drugs and other things going on which I know for a fact. I am not proud to say that my child has attended these RAVES and it's bad news. He/she is an adult and I am doing my best to convince them that sooner or later it will get worse. Wake up Columbus, it's everywhere and these "KIDS" think they know it all. Glowsticks and body paint are not for people who want to drink and have a good time. These are mind altering drugs and people die from this and in time these drugs will do to your kids what it did to a family friend who murdered someone very close to them! Look at the pictures on Facebook and see for yourselves. These parties need to be stopped before something very serious happens.
Yeah Right

Underwear, my bad.
So you are not only ignorant of the implications of your own comments, but you are also even more repulsive than your username implies... Thanks for proving my point.

I think this is a brilliant idea. A great way to maybe make the place profitable and sustainable. Kind of like bringing spring break to columbus, but once a month. really smart marketing idea. Just keep these events isolated from the family experience and it will be a winner. I definitely would not want my kids exposed to this kind event.

Shut it down, no fun of any kind because there might be danger lurking. OK Mom, stop worrying about disaster waiting to happen. Technically Las Vegas should have been torn apart by drunken morons decades ago, but it hasn't, and has only gotten better despite the fact that it is a disaster waiting to happen.

Boy-whoever approved of such a disaster waiting to happen must have had their heads up their asX. I give it six months and it will be shut down for excessive drugs and alcohol abuse. Damn shame that it has become this type of atmosphere and this type of entertainment to illustrate to our younger people. There are more things they can do other than this nonsense.
